Some exciting news from me — I’m honoured to announce that my story, Encore, was selected to appear in the Best of NewMyths anthology, volume IV, releasing later this year.
NewMyths’ fourth anthology, The Cosmic Muse, will be a collection of their favorite stories that feature art or music.
Encore is a sad story about a retired musician reliving his career through virtual reality. I’m thrilled that it’s made the selection, and even more thrilled to be in my first anthology. Hopefully, the first of many!
The story was inspired by the potential uses of virtual reality (I wrote this shortly after I got an Oculus Rift), as well as my teenage obsession with playing guitar, and various articles about the future of AI in creative industries.
If you’re intrigued, you can catch it when the anthology lands in Fall/Autumn this year. Or, you can read it on the NewMyths website right now.
