Saif and I were batting around the idea of a bunch of us getting together to contribute short stories to an ebook that we would then publish. It would be a "From The Nerds At NerdNYC: _______"
The blank would be the theme of the anthology. Maybe one of the illustrator nerds could do a cover, and someone else could lay it out.
If the thing ever actually made money, we would give half the money to nerdnyc, and the other half would be split equally among the authors.
I thought we could use this thread to gauge interest, and maybe pick a theme. I'm proposing the following themes just to get things started. If you have any other theme ideas you like, just post them, and then we'll run a poll for voting. Count me and Saif in as authors, and let us know if you want to contribute too. Each story would be around 5-9K words roughly. Saif would help edit.
Possible theme ideas? Post apocalyptic New York. Zombie New York. New York City as a feudal state. New York City occupied by an alien army. NYC in 25 years.
OK, let 'er rip! Tell me what you think!
