Carl R. Moore Welcomed to Seventh Star Press Author Family

Seventh Star Press is proud to welcome Carl R. Moore into our family of authors.  His collection of horror, crime noir, and alt-mythology titled A Slash of Crimson and other Tales, was edited by Margie Colton, and is set to be released in early summer of this year in both print and eBook formats.

“We are thrilled to have Carl aboard with us,” said Seventh Star Press founding member Stephen Zimmer.  “Carl worked with a fantastic editor in Margie Colton, in developing this collection, and the results are exceptional.  Carl is very dedicated to the craft of writing, and I have no doubt that readers of many different genres are going to love his work.”

Synopsis of Slash of Crimson and Other TalesSlash of Crimson and Other Tales offers two novellas and six short stories that combine an intoxicating mix of horror, crime noir, and alt-mythology. From its title story about a young guitarist and street rough who takes a harrowing journey with a red-eyed beauty who claims she’s from Atlantis, through the half-dozen brutal and bitterly sardonic tales of souls tortured by demons and far worse, to the final novella of trust-destroying lust, the collection delivers a deliciously disturbing feast full of fire, shadow, and infernal intrigue.

About Carl R. Moore: Carl R. Moore lives in upstate New York with his wife Sarah and two daughters, Maddy and Izzy. His fiction has appeared in Thuglit, Macabre Cadaver, and numerous other magazines and anthologies. When he’s not writing or working the night shift, he enjoys listening to heavy metal, plucking steel-string guitar, and walking miles through the woods.

Seventh Star Press Announces Call for Entries on New Anthology Co-Edited by David J. Guyton and Stephen Zimmer

For Immediate Release
February 11, 2013

Seventh Star Press proudly announces a call for entries for Fires of Liberty (Volume One): A Speculative Fiction Celebration of Freedom, the first release of an exciting new anthology series that will be as inspiring as it is thought-provoking.

Co-edited by David J. Guyton and Stephen Zimmer, the anthology challenges authors to explore what freedom really means, and the unique value of the individual, within a speculative fiction environment.  Fires of Liberty is an invitation to exploration, celebration, and self-discovery.

The project welcomes stories of 2,000 to 10,000 words in size  from all corners of the speculative fiction world, including science fiction, fantasy, steampunk, alternate history, dystopian, and more.  Special consideration for inclusion is being given to stories that are prequels, or preludes, to an author’s existing or upcoming series.  Fires of Liberty is scheduled for a Fall 2013 release in trade paperback and eBook formats, and will feature cover art from one of SSP’s award-winning artists.

The themes of the anthology are very close to heart for both of the project’s editors, who are speculative fiction authors with ongoing series that explore the kinds of themes to be featured in Fires of Liberty.

David J. Guyton is a fantasy author and artist currently residing in the eastern United States.  He is known for his Legend of Reason series, a fantasy saga which currently features three titles, Mighty Hammer Down, Blood and Bronze, and Soul Under the Mountain.

Stephen Zimmer is an author and filmmaker residing in Lexington, Kentucky.  His work as an author includes the epic-scale, urban fantasy Rising Dawn Saga, the epic fantasy Fires in Eden series, the Harvey and Solomon steampunk tales, and the forthcoming Hellscapes horror stories.

“David and I are really excited about Fires of Liberty,” Stephen remarked.  “The themes are very important to both of us, and we are really looking forward to seeing some very inspiring and insightful stories brought to life as a result of this project.  The life of an author requires an independent streak, the pursuit of a dream, self-determination and self-motivation, so I am very confident that all kinds of writers will be able to connect and resonate with the themes featured in this anthology.”

The deadline for story submissions is June 1, 2013, and full information on the anthology project can be found at: http://www.seventhstarpress.com/submissions/
