Around the start of 2013, my good friend, David Winstanley, and I hit upon a ruse to create a little sci-fi anthology of our own. David is a bit of a whizz in the editorial department, and I was eager to try the then fledgling TypeEngine system. Fast forward eighteen months and we, after a lot of trials and tribulations, have managed to get Issue #1 (and the free Issue #0) of The New Accelerator onto the App Store for your amusement and delight (should you be inclined to enjoy Sci-Fi short stories, that is).
And what a cracking bunch of short stories they are too. From the humourous to the weird and back, via some deeply philosophical detours, the ten stories in Issue #1 and the two stories in Issue #0 represent, I think, all that is really great about Science Fiction.
At the moment, it’s only available on iOS devices via Apple’s App Store (and Newsstand), but we’re busy helping to test the Android beta, so the Android version should be along soon. Issue #0 comes free with the app, and gives you a great taster of what you can expect should you choose to splash out on the bi-monthly subscription.
David and I are hugely proud of what we’ve achieved, even if it did take much longer than expected, and hope you enjoy these and all our future issues of The New Accelerator.
