Eclipse Phase: After the Fall (Fiction) – Sean’s Pick, 011116

Last week, I Picked the core Eclipse Phase book, as it was on sale and it’s an important part of the posthumanism genre of gaming.

And now, there’s a fantastic collection of fiction from the same folks. To get a feel for the genre in general, and for their setting in particular, I invite you take a journey to a possible – and dangerous, thrilling – future.

In a world of transhuman survival and horror, technology allows the re-shaping of bodies and minds, but also creates opportunities for oppression and puts the capability for mass destruction in the hands of everyone. Other threats lurk in the devastated habitats of the Fall, dangers both familiar and alien.

After the Fall is the first anthology from Posthuman Studios, set in the world of Eclipse Phase, their award-winning roleplaying game. The anthology will be a mix of old and new fiction, including stories by Eclipse Phase favorites—Nathaniel Dean, Jack Graham, Steve Mohan, and Rob Boyle and Davidson Cole. New fiction will feature science fiction rising stars Ken Liu, Madeline Ashby, Fran Wilde, Karin Lowachee, Wesley Schneider, and Andrew Penn Romine.
