That's certainly our hope, but whether or not we will be given the opportunity... well, that depends in large part on how WARRIORS performs.

A cross-genre anthology is always a risk, from a publisher's point of view. The hope is that you will draw readers from all across the spectrum, that SF fans will buy it for the SF, mystery fans for the mystery writers, etc. And that all of them will then find writers they were previously unaware of, so everyone's audience gets expanded.

The risk, of course, is that the same readers will decide that, even though the anthology has some of their favorite writers and favorite genre, it doesn't have enough of same, and is full of writers they don't know and genres they've decided they don't like. And will therefore decide not to buy the book, to wait for the paperback, to wait till the stories they want to read are reprinted in single author collections, etc. That's the downside.

So... you pays your money, and you rolls the dice.
