Short Things is a collection of never-before-published stories based on John W. Campbell’s classic short novel, “Who Goes There?” (filmed as The Thing). Commissioned one by one as stretch goals for the Frozen Hell Kickstarter project (which broke records as one of the most successful science fiction publishing projects in Kickstarter history), this series of stories grew to book size—thanks to contributions by many top writers. Included are new works by

  • G.D. Falksen
  • Paul Di Filippo
  • Mark McLaughlin
  • Alan Dean Foster
  • Darrell Schweitzer
  • Nina Kiriki Hoffman
  • Kristine Kathryn Rusch
  • John Gregory Betancourt

  • Kevin J. Anderson
  • Pamela Sargent
  • Allen M. Steele
  • Allan Cole

Enjoy these sometimes very different takes on the classic monster, the Thing!
