Titan Books are releasing Infinite Stars: Dark Frontiers this autumn, a new SF anthology edited by Bryan Thomas Schmidt featuring 27 stories – 15 of them original to the book, including one by “Lost Fleet” author Jack Campbell, who I had the pleasure of working with on Titan Comics mini-series, The Lost Fleet: Corsair.

The follow-up to the critically acclaimed Infinite Stars anthology, released in 2017, Infinite Stars: Dark Frontiers presents today’s finest science fiction authors writing new stories set in their most famous worlds. With a new introduction and a short story by David Weber, the authors include Hugo-nominated Becky Chambers (Wayfarers), Curtis C. Chen (Kangaroo), Orson Scott Card (Ender), Susan R. Matthews, Larry Niven and Steven Barnes (Dream Park), Tanya Huff (Confederation), Jack Campbell (Lost Fleet) and many more.
