New Release: Cracked an Eggscellent Chicken Anthology

So a while back an author whose social media presence often involves various critters from her farm (which I hugely enjoy) threw out an idea. Quarantine is boring. Life is stressful. We should do something.

Being authors, she proposed we write. With chickens. And humor.

I was all in.

What came out of that prompt was an anthology full of twenty authors, and a whole bunch of funny chicken stories. They are fiction, non-fiction, science fiction, fantasy, you name it, it’s probably in here.

Besides, it has chickens in funny stories. Need I say more?

My story contribution to this involves a massive technical glitch on a space station, the entire flock of chickens on the run, and I got to write the line “as a vortex of chickens swirling…”

So what are you waiting for? This is so much better than watching the news *shudder* or dwelling on the ‘new normal.’ Grab a copy of Cracked and let us whisk you away into a world where humor and disaster walk hand in hand! With chickens underfoot.

When you’re done, leave us a review. If enough people like it, we’ll do this again. I have some really awesome ideas.

Oh, and it also inspired some art, which you can get on T-shirts through my shop! I love chickens, can’t you tell? (and if you can’t see the sarcasm dripping there, do read my story in the anthology!)

  1. Thanks, Cedar! I was looking for some way to stop taking notes… this should be the perfect after-dinner relaxation.

  2. Chickens, eh? That’s all well and good. For my part, I await the anthology David Brin once proposed to Gregory Benford: Great Science Fiction About Root Vegetables. ‘Cause there’s this killer short languishing in my trunk about a heroic rutabaga…

  3. Got it.

    Wildly unrelated: One of the recommendations was book nine of Glynn Stewart’s Space Mage series. I wasn’t sure if I’d read it so I clicked to see more detail. Glynn Stewart is a man! I’ve read most of his books (the Duchy of Terra series is great) thinking the author was a woman. I don’t think it much matters (to me, he may have a different opinion), but the social justice repercussions are making my brain hurt.
