I am excited to announce the launch of EXTANT! SF's first project!
21st Century Thrilling Adventure is a collection of stories that aim for the passion and drive of Radium Age action and adventure, but drag that energy into the modern age.

This collection features stories inspired by the action-adventure tales of the pulps, stories that range from hard boiled action, through tales of the weird to straight up fantasies of the modern world. The thing they all have in common is:energy.
These stories hit the ground running!

This is an amazing lineup of writers for a first issue, and I’m excited to be working with them. Be sure to check out their websites and to search out their other work online – this project is going to be a wild ride!
