eKhaya to co-publish Something Wicked Volume 2!

eKhaya is delighted to announce that we’ll be co-publishing the Something Wicked Anthology of Speculative Fiction, Volume Two with Joe Vaz and Vianne Venter at Inkless Media. Joe and Vianne have been tireless nurturers of South African and international genre talent for years, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to lend our support to this anthology. While there are already some big names among the contributors, we hope we’re helping to encourage a new group of writers, particularly South African, to become bestsellers and award-winners in years to come.

The anthology will be available as an eKhaya e-book and PDF from global e-retailers in late April. Print-on-demand copies will also be available from Inkless Media.

Book description:

Inkless Media & eKhaya present the Something Wicked Anthology of Speculative Fiction, Volume Two.

Volume Two marks the official transition of Something Wicked from magazine to annual anthology, featuring 25 brand new stories by writers from South Africa and abroad; seasoned veterans and first-timers brought together in a single book containing tales of post-apocalyptic dystopias, alternate realities, far-future science fiction and good old-fashioned blood-chilling horror, edited and compiled by the doting godparents of South African genre fiction, Joe Vaz and Vianne Venter.

Let your mind wander across distant galaxies, down darkened alleys, and across oceans of floating cities and let Something Wicked be your guide.

Let the journey begin.

Contributors to Something Wicked, Volume 2 include South Africans Abi Godsell, Cat Hellisen, Martin Stokes and Nick Wood; and twenty further-flung writers including Peter Damien, C.S. Fuqua, Nick Scorza, Thomas Sweterlitsch and Genevieve Taylor.

The awesome cover art has been designed by celebrated South African artist, Vincent Sammy, a Something Wicked stalwart; the jacket will be revealed by our friends at Pornokitsch tomorrow. Don’t go to sleep.
