Fictionwise.com Signs Six Additional Top Authors
Almost 300 Short Fiction Ebooks will be Available for Palm, Rocket, and Computers.

JULY 27, 2000 - Chatham, NJ - Fictionwise.com announced today that it has signed up more top genre authors, including: Gregory Benford, Gardner Dozois, Nick DiChario, Laura Resnick, Karen Haber, and George Zebrowski. Fictionwise has obtained multiple titles from each of these authors, in most cases 10 or more, which will be available in eBook formats for the Palm, Rocket eBook, and computers. In addition, Fictionwise (http://www.fictionwise.com) also acquired an additional 10 stories by Grandmaster of Science Fiction Robert Silverberg, including some of his most recent short work.

Multiple award winning author Gregory Benford has long been known as a leading writer of “hard” science fiction stories. Hard science fiction stories seek to extrapolate current theories of science in a plausible, yet accessible and entertaining way. Benford has granted rights to ten of his stories, including the Hugo award winning short story “If the Stars are Gods,” and the Hugo nominated story “Doing Lennon.”

Stephen Pendergrast, co-publisher at Fictionwise.com, commented, “We’re thrilled to have these stories from Gregory Benford. You can hardly pick up a ‘Best of the Year’ anthology without seeing some of his work. This acquisition greatly strengthens our collection of ‘hard’ SF for fans of this prized category of fiction.”

Gardner Dozois is an 11 time Hugo Award winning editor, as well as a critically acclaimed author.

Pendergrast commented, “Gardner Dozois’ fame as an editor sometimes overshadows his talent as a writer. He’s won two Nebula® awards for his fiction, and in addition has been nominated for the Nebula® five times. Both of his Nebula® winning and several of his nominated works will be available at Fictionwise.com.”

Nick DiChario has written dozens of short stories, published in many of the major markets. He is a current Hugo Nominee for his short story “Sarajevo,” which is available free for a limited time from Fictionwise.com. Fictionwise has also acquired two of his other most acclaimed stories, “The Winterberry,” and “Carp Man.”

Laura Resnick won the 1993 Campbell Award for Best New Writer. She has published extensively in both Science Fiction and Romance genres. She has granted rights to ten of her fantasy and alternate history stories to Fictionwise.com. She is the daughter of Mike Resnick, the multiple award winning science fiction author.

Karen Haber's short fiction has appeared in many magazines and anthologies including Asimov’s SF Magazine, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, and Science Fiction Age. The author of eight novels such as "Woman Without A Shadow" and "Star Trek Voyager: Bless the Beasts", her latest book, "Science of the X-Men" (with Linc Yakov), will be published in August. With her husband, Robert Silverberg, she edited the "UNIVERSE" science fiction anthologies.

George Zebrowski has published thirty-five books including novels, short story collections, anthologies, and essays.  His short fiction and essays have appeared in every major science fiction magazine, including Amazing Stories, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Science Fiction Age, OMNI, and others.

Robert Silverberg had previously granted eBook rights to 20 of his stories to Fictionwise.com, including several of his award winning and nominated stories. Mr. Silverberg has now granted rights to an additional 10 stories to Fictionwise.com. Among these are two of his most recently acclaimed novella-length works, “Hot Times in Magma City,” and “Beauty in the Night.”

Scott Pendergrast, co-publisher at Fictionwise.com commented, “We’re very pleased to increase our collection of fine Robert Silverberg stories. Mr. Silverberg has confirmed that Fictionwise now has the largest collection of his stories anywhere on the web, and by a wide margin. We’re especially pleased that he has granted us exclusive eBook rights to two of his most recent works.”

Stories by all of these authors are in production now and will start appearing in early August. Fictionwise.com is striving to become the short eBook fiction leader, offering works by top genre authors. With these acquisitions Fictionwise now has a collection of nearly 300 stories in the Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, and Alternate History genres from top authors including James Patrick Kelly, John Kessel, Damon Knight, Nancy Kress, David Langford, Mary Soon Lee, Barry Malzberg, Tom Purdom, Mike Resnick, Pamela Sargent, Michael Swanwick, and Kate Wilhelm.
