And here are more details about Lost Worlds & Mythological Kingdoms:

“Here be dragons . . . and a lot of stories that would make a dragon blink. A fascinating kaleidoscope of people and places and Things That Might Have Been—or Might Be.” Diana Gabaldon, New York Times bestselling author

From Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea to Journey to the Center of the Earth, from the fabled island of Avalon to the lost oasis of Zerzura, from The Land That Time Forgot to the golden city of El Dorado, storytellers have long imagined what exists beyond the edges of the map.

The need to seek and discover the unknown is embedded in who we are, no matter the culture or era. To celebrate this sense of wonder, award-winning editor John Joseph Adams has gathered together some of the best SF&F writers working today, collecting adventure and mystery in this spectacular anthology. With original contributions from Kate Elliott, Tobias S. Buckell, Dexter Palmer, E. Lily Yu, Jonathan Maberry, and a dozen more, there are short stories sure to enthrall every reader.

Explore the rich tradition begun centuries ago with this all-new compilation full of imagination and delights. What lies beyond the edge of the unknown? Only you, brave reader, can find out.

Lost Worlds & Mythological Kingdoms is available as a hardcover at Amazon, B&N, and other fine bookstores.

And the anthology will have a 250-copy limited edition signed by all contributors and John Joseph Adams, which won't go on sale until the signature pages are nearly complete. Right now, 6/18 contributors have signed, which means the pre-order date won't be until June 2022 if all goes well.

Go! Order now! I'm really excited about Lost Worlds & Mythological Kingdoms. I grew up on these types of stories, handed down from my grandfather and father. Hope you enjoy John's new anthology as much as I did!

With Magic,
