Silverthought: Ignition
a speculative fiction anthology
edited by Paul Hughes

Semi-Finalist, 2006 Independent Publisher Book Award for Fantasy/Science Fiction

Silverthought: Ignition is a collection of some of the finest short fiction featured on silverthought.com, a literary web site for writers and enthusiasts of speculative fiction founded in 2001. Silverthought.com has since developed into a thriving online community. In early 2005, I announced the formation of Silverthought Press, the offline publishing component of silverthought.com. I am proud to present to you Ignition, the first book released by our small press. The stories collected here represent some of the best work from our site. Selecting these pieces was no easy task, but after a lengthy nomination process and a thorough read of over one hundred twenty submissions, I chose to include these twenty-one shorts in this anthology. These selections span the full spectrum of the sf genre, but there are certain universal underlying themes. This is a dark collection, a funny collection, a series of stories that challenges as much as it entertains. Ignition asks critical questions about who we are and where we’re going.

--Paul Hughes, Executive Editor
