Blood Type is a charity anthology edited by Robert S. Wilson where all the net proceeds from sales will go to The Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
The theme is vampires – in science fiction. Hence there will be vampires in space, vampires in the far future, robo-vampires and whatever else the talented crowd of writers have cooked up in the wee hours of the morning.
My own short story, Predators of Tomorrow, is a melancholic tale taking place in the last days of a dying humanity. A tale of a sole survivor on an impossible mission.
The most prominent name in the anthology is probably Peter Watts with Orientation Day, a short story set in his Blindsight universe.
This looks awesome, and since it is for charity, buy 10. (Or buy one and make a donation on the side.)
