Table of Contents – Manifesto: UF

Back in May I announced that my short story Dharmasankat: Crisis of Faith had been accepted for inclusion in Tim Marquitz and Tyson J. Mauermann’s urban fantasy anthology Manifesto: UF. You can read that post here. Since then, I’ve been keenly anticipating the release of the anthology and seeing my name in print for the first time. I won’t lie, I’m superterriblyamazingly excited for this. After several false starts and abandoned projects things are beginning to work out and it looks like I do have the start of something great here.

Just a couple days ago, I looked at the final edited version of the short story. There actually weren’t any serious edits there other the American English-ization of a few terms here and there, and that too because I tend to write in British English, owing to my aspirations to one day write for Black Library’s Warhammer Fantasy and/or Warhammer 40,000 settings.

Having that be the most serious editing required makes me really glad. Glad that I didn’t screw up anything with my debut effort. The anticipation of release is eating at me right now, as is the fact that Dharmayoddha: Warrior of Faith is still on submission and I haven’t heard anything about it yet. Either way, I’m really looking forward to the release of the anthology.

In the meantime, since it was finalised, here’s the Table of Contents for the anthology. As I mentioned in the other post, some of these authors are friends I’ve made in the last few months ever since I started reviewing and to be able to share the same writing space as them is thrilling. Too, fellow reviewer Nickolas Sharps is making his own debut here as well and both of us are right smack in the middle of the TOC.

Exciting times!

The anthology will be released in less than a month’s time, on 1st September, through Angelic Knight Press. I don’t have any of the usual bells-and-whistles links for you yet (Amazon, publisher product page, etc), but I do have the Goodreads page. I’ll get the other links as soon as I can. In the meantime, if you could head over to Goodreads and add the book to your reading shelves, that’d be great.

Thanks to everybody who’s helped so far. Much appreciated!

  1. Congrats! I’m looking forward to getting my hands on this anthology! I can’t wait to read your contribution, and there are quite a few other names on that table of contents that have got me pretty interested, too!

    This also makes me think I really ought to get back to writing fiction. I stopped for a while, mostly due to health crap, but I’ve been feeling the urge to start getting some stories down, and seeing my friends succeed gives me hope that someday I’ll be able to do the same.

    • I know right? A large part of what got me writing seriously (to the end point that I was actually submitting stuff) was that people I knew were doing it and some of them were having success. And its all ballooned in the last few months. There’s a really, really exciting opportunity coming up with a friend that I can’t wait to share. I’m not officially a part of it, but I’ve had a bit of an organisational contribution and it is a really awesome project. Least, I think so.

      And thanks for the interest! I’m starting to get the dreaded “release, review cold feet”!
