When the moon gets too close and too bright, it makes us crazy. Loony, even.
In that spirit, editor Lancelot Schaubert rounded up sci-fi and fantasy writers ANNE GREENWOOD BROWN, JULIET MARILLIER, LJ COHEN, ANTHONY G. CIRILLA, FC SHULTZ, and EMILY MUNRO to write about cosmic influence. The fantasy writers took a more mythological approach, speaking of the symbolic (or perhaps godly) Mercury and Mars and Neptune. The sci-fi writers tell you what it’s like to live on Jupiter and Uranus. All of them, though, speak of the influence of what one writer called “the music of the spheres.” These are stories OF GODS AND GLOBES. They’re quite the ride: they made the editor laugh and cry and chilled him to the bone with terror. And one of the stories made me long for a home that… well for a home he doesn’t think he's ever been to before.

About the Author
Lancelot Schaubert has sold his written work to markets like The New Haven Review, McSweeney’s, The Poet’s Market, Writer’s Digest (magazine and books), Poker Pro, Encounter, The Misty Review, Carnival, Brink, and many other similar markets. He reinvented the photonovel through Cold Brewed and was commissioned by the Missouri Tourism Board to create a second photonovel — The Joplin Undercurrent — that both fictionalizes and enchants the history and culture of Joplin, Missouri. His work terraforms new worlds, tears the veil between the natural and supernatural, and jests with the paradoxes of classical metaphysics. When he’s not writing (or tinkering with cinema-ish narrative), he’s dabbling in dozens of different books, listening to people tell their life stories, camping, fishing, exploring unfamiliar territory (there’s a lot in New York), tinkering with new languages (Spanish, currently), exploring random disciplines like chemical engineering, as well as messing around with improv comedy and leisure de main and music. PLEASE SEND SOUP — he loves soup. Yes, even if it’s summer. Find him in Brooklyn, New York with his wife, Tara, and their attack spaniel, Echo.
