Here are some anthologies Melanie has edited or co-edited. She's worked with some of the finest writers in the science fiction and fantasy genres, and loves introducing readers to new authors they might not have read before.

I have two new projects coming up this year that I'm not allowed to talk about yet! But they will be epic!

Hints: One has to do with cats! And will have a NYT Bestselling author who is known for her love of cats on board. The other is on the darker side, and is the follow-up for another anthology that came out a couple years ago. I'm very excited about both, and can't wait to make the official announcements about them!


Mother. Warrior. Caregiver. 

Wife. Lover. Survivor. 

Trickster. Heroine. Leader. 

Coming in Spring 2018, this anthology features stories from bestselling and award winning authors like Seanan McGuire, Carol Berg, Nisi Shawl, Lian Hearn, Bradley P. Beaulieu, Lucy A. Snyder, Gail Z. Martin, Django Wexler, and more, as well as essays from Sarah Kuhn, Shanna Germain, and others. 

Whether they are warriors, the silent but powerful type, or the timid who muster up bravery to protect the ones they love, these fierce women will leave their mark.

"The fury of women, scorned and otherwise, is scarcely a new concept.  But within this anthology you will find a collection of tales that present that fury in new lights."--Robin Hobb, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Farseer Trilogy

MECH: Age of Steel, an anthology of epic proportions featuring stories from Scott Sigler, Kevin J. Anderson, Martha Wells, Jeremy Robinson, Peter Clines, Anton Strout, Gini Koch, and more! Co-edited by Melanie R. Meadors and Tim Marquitz.
