Samuel Peralta - physicist, entrepreneur, storyteller.

In fiction circles, Samuel is perhaps best-known as the creator and series editor of the acclaimed Future Chronicles series of speculative fiction anthologies, with every title rising in turn to the top of the Amazon hot new release and bestseller lists.

He was recognized as a Best American Science Fiction & Fantasy notable author for his work, Hereafter. His book projects have hit the Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller lists, and have hit #1 in the speculative fiction charts on all major ebook platforms - Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, Apple iBooks, and Kobo.

Samuel's own works have been published in numerous magazines and anthologies, including Lightspeed, Beyond the Stars, Frontiers of Speculative Fiction, Canyons of the Damned, UnCommon Anthologies, Existere, OCHO, Seedpod, Undercurrents, and Fictionaut.

His literary work has been spotlighted in Best American Poetry, and recognized with numerous awards, including from the BBC, the UK Poetry Society, the Palanca Memorial Awards Foundation, Twitter, and in shortlists for the League of Canadian Poets, the Elgin Award, Goodreads Best Small Press Books, and the ARC Poem of the Year.


Samuel's passion in digital publishing parallels a drive in technological and business innovation. Among other things, he won a New Technology Award for a laser inspection system for detecting flaws in nuclear reactor cores, and his work in e-book software won an Innovative Technology Achievement Award from the Digital Literature Institute. A semiconductor firm he co-founded was named to the Toronto Stock Exchange's TSX Venture Top 50, and to Canadian Business Magazine's Top Tech 100.

A Ph.D. in physics and a driven technology executive, having co-founded or had leadership roles in several private and public companies, he continues to serve on several Boards of Directors and as an adviser to start-ups and incubators.

Samuel has also supported and helped produce over a hundred independent films, including The Fencer, which earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Foreign Language Film, and Real Artists, which won an Emmy Award for Best Arts/Entertainment Program/Special.

 

PRESS

The best place to discover new science fiction authors,

I think, is any of the anthologies coming from

Samuel Peralta.

 

PRESS

Peralta writes of

things that matter,

so beautifully and simply,

he can reduce you

to tears.

Samuel Peralta is the voice of the next generation of speculative fiction, with stories that blend science and humanity, where every sentence matters.

The best place to discover new science fiction authors,

I think, is any of the anthologies coming from

Samuel Peralta.
