Book Bomb! Sad Puppies Short Fiction

The International Lord of Hate, President of the Monster Hunter Nation, Field Marshal of the Evil Legion of Evil, His Holiness Pope Laurentius of GamerGate, aka Larry Correia, the Mountain that Writes, has decreed a Book Bomb to increase readership of novelettes and short stories on the Sad Puppies slate.

Superversive SF proudly notes that this Book Bomb features “On a Spiritual Plain” by Lou Antonelli, published in Sci Phi Journal #2.
