Shapers of Worlds, an anthology of short stories from some of the authors who were guests on The Worldshapers podcast in its first year, is now nearing publication, with the ebook version going live September 22 and the print version to be published November 14.

The anthology features new fiction from Seanan McGuire, Tanya Huff, David Weber, L.E. Modesitt, Jr., D.J. Butler, Christopher Ruocchio, John C. Wright, Shelley Adina, and yours truly; plus reprints from John Scalzi, Joe Haldeman, Julie Czerneda, Fonda Lee, Gareth L. Powell, Derek Kunsken, Dr. Charles E. Gannon, and Thoraiya Dyer.
