Lynda E. Rucker, whose story “The Other Side” features in Something Remains, comments on the collaborative process:
It was an enormous honor to work on this and also an extremely moving experience. I had selected the fragment that spoke to me the most personally, and worked hard to get into a mindset that would produce a story that was truly a collaboration between Joel and me. As someone who had only a passing acquaintance with Joel personally (but who has loved his work since the 1990s), it was surprising how close I felt to him over the course of writing the story.
Something Remains will be launched this September at FantasyCon by the Sea.
