2113: Stories Inspired by the Music of Rush Now Available for Pre-Order
Back in August of 2014, author Kevin J. Anderson first announced the upcoming release of 2113 - a collection of short stories inspired by the lyrics and music of Rush.
The book is now available for pre-order from Amazon.
From the release notes:
The music of Rush, one of the most successful bands in music history, is filled with fantastic stories, evocative images, thought-provoking futures and pasts. In this anthology, notable, bestselling, and award-winning writers each chose a Rush song as the spark for a new story, drawing inspiration from the visionary trio Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart.2113 will be released on April 12th, 2016.

From stark dystopian struggles to uplifting triumphs of the human spirit, the characters populating 2113 find strength while searching for hope in a world that is repressive, dangerous, or just debilitatingly bland. Most of these tales are science fiction, but some are fantasies, thrillers, even edgy mainstream. Many of Rush’s big hits are represented, as well as deeper cuts . . . with wonderful results. This anthology also includes the seminal stories that inspired the Rush classics “Red Barchetta” and “Roll the Bones,” as well as Kevin J. Anderson’s novella sequel to the groundbreaking Rush album 2112.
2113 contains stories by New York Times bestselling authors Kevin J. Anderson, Michael Z. Williamson, David Alan Mack, David Farland, Dayton Ward, and Mercedes Lackey; award winners Fritz Leiber, John McFetridge, Steven Savile, Brad R. Torgersen, Ron Collins, David Niall Wilson, and Brian Hodge, as well as many other authors with their imaginations on fire.
"imaginations on fire"? Ugh...the only thing I didn't like about the Clockwork Angels novel were the cheesy, patronizing snippets of old Rush lyrics within the story. I didn't mind the Clockwork excerpts in there, the songs were part of the actual story, but the old stuff thrown in there was just cringeworthy. You're a fan, you know the lyrics, I get it. Hoping this book and 'Clockwork Lives' don't do that. That is all.ReplyDelete
