Exchange Students from Anywhere and Anywhen

Cover art by Laura Givens for “Exchange Students.”

This is the last call for submissions to the anthology “Exchange Students.” I’m going to be in it; will you?

“Editor Sheila Hartney and I (David Lee Summers) have been enjoying reading the wonderful submissions that have been coming in for Hadrosaur Productions’ forthcoming anthology, Exchange Students. Although we have a full anthology at this point, we are willing to be tempted by a few more good stories and could make room for a truly exceptional story or three. That said, this is last call. We will be closing to all submissions on October 15, 2019. Any submissions received after the 15th will not be considered.”

They want science fiction, fantasy, and/or horror which could be serious, humorous, or something in between. Details are here.

UPDATE: The collection is now available in ebook or paperback form at:

Alden’s SF story “Orange Sun, Grey Sky,” which takes place in a galaxy he created that was used in GURPS campaigns, was accepted for the anthology. The image by Laura Givens is used to spread the word about the anthology and no threat to its copyright is intended. The quote is from Last Call – Exchange Students by David Lee Summers.

    That’s marvelous! I can’t wait to see it!

  2. Dharma says:

    I definitely look forward to seeing it. Does that painting have to do with your story or someone else’s?

  3. That is wonderful Alden. I am sure you wrote a great story. You have more experience with kids than I do!

  4. Dr. Sinister Craven says:

    That’s great Alden! Fantastic cover. I remember being there.

    • I never ran a game in the world of my story, but you have certainly played characters in that galaxy. Unless you mean the world in the picture; it looks intriguing, but I don’t know anything about it other than what I see in the pic.

  5. Michael Viviano says:

    I like that. I’ve been trying to get back into writing gear, but I don’t think I’ll have anything ready.

  6. Timid Timothy says:

    I’m glad to see the anthology is coming together. Frankly, I had my doubts they’d get enough quality stories together to fit the Exchange Students theme, but I’m glad to see they did. Sheila Hartney and David Lee Summers do great work. And that cover by Laura Givens leads you right in.

  7. TawTew the Naturally Perfumed says:

    I certainly want to see that when it comes out! Glad they got the collection together. And I love how the cover makes the large reptile and girl look like friends.

  8. Abelard d'Pésni says:

    That’s great, sure. But you really should write and publish some stories in Zamora. You can use your adventures there.

  9. Anonymous says:

    You are giving yourself away. Now we know Shelia and David are also both Loveshade sockpuppets.

    Super! The girl looks like me! 😛
