Fiction River edited by international bestseller Kevin J. Anderson

Pulse Pounders
Edited by Kevin J. Anderson
Starts with a bang.
Ends with a bang.
And a lot of bang in between.
Pulse Pounders. Ranging from straight thriller to science fiction, fantasy to pulp adventure, these stories make your heart race. Share the excitement as a woman held hostage in a chair has only a few minutes to escape, and a man trapped in a time loop revisits a crisis point in the past. Including an original never-before-published Frank Herbert story, these page-turners show why Adventures Fantastic says Fiction River “is one of the best and most exciting publications in the field today.”

—Fresh Fiction on Fiction River: Christmas Ghosts

“…a nice, enjoyable collection of ghost stories that are a perfect fit for the season.”
—Adventures Fantastic on Fiction River: Christmas Ghosts

“Fiction River: Crime edited by Kristine Kathryn Rusch leads off with strong new tales by three familiar EQMM contributors: Doug Allyn with a gangster whodunnit, Steve Hockensmith with a con game story, and Brendan DuBois with a fresh variation on the old brothers-who-took-different-paths ploy. A sampling of other contents, including experimental short-shorts by Melissa Yi and M. Elizabeth Castle and a clever turn on the greedy-relatives-want-inheritance by Kate Wilhelm, suggest high quality throughout."
—Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine on Fiction River Special Edition: Crime

“Among the volume’s better entries are Doug Allyn’s “Hitler’s Dogs,” in which narrator Doc Bannan seeks the truth about his gang mentor’s death, and Steve Hockensmith’s “Wheel of Fortune,” which relates the schemes of a pair of con artists.”
—Publishers Weekly on Fiction River Special Edition: Crime

“… [this] fabulous collection runs the genre gamut and more.”
—Genre Go Round Reviews on Fiction River Special Edition: Crime

Fiction River: Fantastic Detectives is a great choice for anyone who loves it when genres are swirled together. It’s nominally more heavily influenced by mystery conventions and tropes, but the science fiction and fantasy elements in it are almost as strong.”
—Long and Short Reviews on Fiction River: Fantastic Detectives

“Fiction River: Fantastic Detectives is a great read if you like to blend mystery with your fantasy. Check it out.”
—Keith West, Amazing Stories

“This fantastic Fiction River anthology runs the gamut of fantasy-detective subgenres.”
—Harriet Klausner, Futures Mystery Anthology Magazine on Fiction River: Fantastic Detectives

“Rusch’s strong anthology contains a dozen stories of ‘crimes that aren’t crimes any longer,’ as she states in her introduction, stories that move from as far back as ancient Egypt to as recently as the 1970s. … Readers will find many impressive voices, both familiar and new.
—Publishers Weekly on Fiction River: Past Crime

“Meeting the exceptional quality of previous anthologies, this collection contains excellent past crimes short stories.”
Harriet Klausner, Futures Mystery Anthology Magazine on Fiction River: Past Crime

“… fans of the unconventional will be well satisfied.”
—Publishers Weekly on Fiction River: Pulse Pounders
