Michelle Lyons-McFarland Contributes Short Story to Apex Anthology


Michelle Lyons-McFarland’s short story “Swan Song” will be published in the forthcoming anthology Upside Down: Inverted Tropes in Storytelling from Apex Publications. The short stories and poems selected for this volume “highlight the long-standing tradition of writers who identify tropes in science fiction, fantasy, and horror and twist them into something new and interesting,” according to the publisher.

Other contributors include Maurice Broaddus, Shanna Germain, Laura Anne Gilman, Sara Harvey, John Hornor Jacobs, Rahul Kanakia, Haralambi Markov, Sunil Patel, Kat Richardson, Nisi Shawl, Lucien Soulban, Wrath James White, Alyssa Wong, and many others.

Edited by Jaym Gates and Monica Valentinelli, the anthology will arrive later this year in both digital and print, with partial support from a Kickstarter campaign.
