In 2011 Twelfth Planet Press began the publication of a series of single author collections featuring short stories and novellas from twelve of Australia’s most prominent female short fiction writers in the speculative and horror genres. The authors were instructed to write four stories of any genre, and each were allowed to take the stories and collection as a whole in whichever direction they desired. In 2015, the Twelfth Planet was published.
Through Twitter, Ju from The Conversationalist and Steph from Forest of Books discovered that they both planned to read and review all of the Twelve Planets in 2016, and a challenge was born! If you want to join in, please click here.
What is the aim of A Journey Through the Twelve Planets?
The aim of this challenge is simple: to read all of the Twelve Planets during 2016, and post a review for one of the books at the end of each month. (Note that the Thirteenth Planet has also been announced; for the time being, this challenge will focus on the original twelve).
What will we be reading and in which order?
We will be reading the Twelve Planets in the order of publication below (links go to the book purchase pages at Twelfth Planet Press):
The collections are also available through Smashwords and Amazon in ebook form. Print versions of the collections are available, though several are sold out or close to being sold out at this time.
One a month sounds like a good plan – I hope I can keep up!
