For Immediate Release 2/21/23
Lexington, KY: Apex Publications is happy to announce our new project ROBOTIC AMBITIONS: An Anthology of Robotic Sentience. Jason Sizemore and Lesley Conner will co-edit the anthology. Editors Jason Sizemore and Lesley Conner are looking for stories that examine the concept of “robotic ambitions.” Using philosophical, moral, and practical points-of-view, what does it mean to be sentient and mechanical? What challenges will mechanical beings face from a fearful and chaotic world? What are their goals and ambitions?
Depending on the Robotic Ambitions’ Kickstarter funding level, the anthology will be comprised of six to twelve original stories selected from an open reading period that will open in early March.
