This month I’m focusing on my writing group’s recently released anthology, 18. In addition to the interviews I’m doing with some of the collection’s authors, I’m also sharing my thoughts about the individual works and writers in the manuscript.
Infinity Underscore: Kristen Isbester
You ever read a novel and thought, ‘Where has this story been my whole life?’ That’s Infinity Underscore for me.
Kristen doesn’t just draw inspiration from some of the more iconoclastic anime of all time: Cowboy Bebop and Trigun, she takes them for a ride and then tosses a little Neil Gaiman into the mix. The end result is a tale that holds you down and makes you pay attention. Want space immortals? You can have it. Want drawling, winding dialogue in tough-guy saloons? Kristen’s put that on top in a bow.
So the question is, why are you still devouring this post when you can be reading an anime aficionado and skilled writer? 18 is available on Amazon and is on their Kindle Select program. So if you discover the right day, it’s free, but if not then what’s 99 cents in the giant scheme of the cosmos? So go… Go and be with the space cowboys because that’s where both our hearts truly lie.
