Short story anthology announcement

My science fiction short story "Stormrider" appears in the anthology Fierce Family from Crossed Genres, out this month. From the website:
Strong, united families are rarely portrayed in speculative fiction. They’re often dysfunctional, combative, self-destructive, or miserable, when they’re portrayed at all. This is especially true for non-nuclear and adoptive families, single parent families and families with no children, which are easy targets for invalidation.

And QUILTBAG families are almost never portrayed in speculative fiction, regardless of whether their families are loving or falling apart.

15 exhilarating stories of QUILTBAG families experiencing adventure, disaster, and triumph make up Fierce Family. They are families of any constellation: all sizes and configurations, families of choice as well as families by birth. They are caring and connected – when outside conflict arises, they come together to defend and aid one another. Fiercely, and without hesitation.

My contribution, "Stormrider", is action sci-fi about a family who perform search & rescue operations on a storm-torn ice planet, riding native wildlife that resemble giant leafy sea dragons. Because I needed more ice dragons in my life! More info and buy links at the website above.
