When asked,

If your writing  were to be published in your dream anthology, which Writers would be published in the volume with you?

Rogers answers:

If I could share a Table of Contents page with anyone, I think it would be Woody Allen.  I don't know why.  I just think it would be fun.

What I like about anthologies is that they're usually themed in some way.  That constraint gives me something to write against which somehow releases my creativity.

The downside to writing for anthologies is that I have one shot.  The editor can't hold the story for the next issue as can be done at a magazine.  If another writer gets there first with a similar idea, I lose.

Following is the opening to THE THIRTEENTH HOUR which was Rogers first anthology acceptance.


She stood within the circle.  He stood without. Though she could feel his discomfort, it did nothing to lessen her own.  While she was the High Priestess of the village, he represented The Mother World, still rich and powerful after all these years.  He was just one but he could bring shiploads of others, a raging river that would scour the fields clean, destroy all that she had worked for.  He shifted, his right hand touching his computer and his holstered weapon as if for reassurance.  "So let's see if I have this right.  Approximately three months after the ship landed, a series of massive solar flares destroyed all the electronics."

"That is correct."

"You were left with nothing."

"We were left with our hands and our minds and the land."

"But you had no functioning computers."  He spoke as though he could not even imagine such a tragedy.


THE THIRTEENTH HOUR appears in "The Witching Hour" available
