80 Stories in 80 Days Update.

Dear authors, dear supporters,

I am delighted that so many of you participate in the project “around the world in 80 SF stories”. Sadly I wasn’t able to bring together 80 authors from 80 countries with one story each. So I have decided to gather 80 authors with one story each. That means that it’s not going to be 80 countries. Therefore I’ll change the concept and publish all authors, also if there are more then one from one country, in this short story anthology. Unfortunately, we still need some more authors. I’d be delighted, if we could find some further authors.

At this time the first stories are already getting translated, so that I’ll certainly be able to publish the book soon. At this point, I already want to thank everybody and I hope to receive the missing stories as well. I’d be especially happy if we might be able to work together in the future.

This was a short intermediate status report. I’ll get in touch again once the book is getting published. Maybe sooner, too.

Thank you very much for your help.


mit freundlichen Grüssen
