Company Mission: An Empire of Dreams and Miracles
Phobos Entertainment is an ambitious young company
dedicated to creating high quality science fiction entertainment across
the full spectrum of mass media. From books and movies to TV and video
games, Phobos is working to help science fiction writers, artists and
multi-media creators realize their fantastic visions of the future and
share them with the world. Veteran movie producer Sandra Schulberg and
her business partner Moon Cho launched the Phobos mission in 2000 with
the dream of creating a company that could produce intelligent,
insightful entertainment limited only by the boundaries of the
imagination. With support from a talented crew of true believers, and
some very experienced business partners, Phobos has energetically
exploded into the universe like a newly formed galaxy bursting forth
from the Big Bang.
Phobos Books was formed in 2001. Its first
title, Empire of Dreams and Miracles: The Phobos Science Fiction
Anthology was published in September 2002. Edited by Orson Scott
Card and Keith Olexa, the Anthology collects the 12 winning short
stories from the 1st Annual Phobos Fiction Contest and showcases the
literary talents of emerging science fiction authors.
The 2nd Phobos Fiction Contest resulted in the 2nd Anthology Hitting
the Skids in Pixeltown, and includes stories by some of the previous
Phobos Award winners. The celebrity juries for the previous and
forthcoming anthologies include Ringworld author Larry Niven,
Nebula Award-winner Catherine Asaro, and NASA Astronaut Marsha Ivins,
astrophysicist and author Lawrence Krauss, The Matrix executive
producer Andrew Mason, Oscar-winning Star Wars designer Doug
Chang, editor and writer Jim Shooter, Star Log editor Dave
McDonnald, Sci-Fi Channel senior VP Tom Vitale, Analog editor and
author Stanley Schmidt, Oscar-winning computer scientist Ken Perlin,
Phobos co-founder John Roche and best-selling author Orson Scott Card.
Phobos Books is publishing more and more work by
the Phobos Award-winning authors, such as James Maxey's novel Nobody
Gets the Girls and the first in a new Galaxy series Absolutely
Brilliant in Chrome.
Production is slated to begin soon on Graveland,
the first Phobos film, a co-production with the SCI FI Channel that was
developed by Moon Cho and SCI FI Channel executives. The production is
financed by Phobos strategic partner Brainstorm Media.
Phobos is also moving forward with exciting video
game, web comic, and radio projects. Check back at phobosweb.com for
more information on these projects in the months to come.
The Phobos team is creating a new home on a
distant planet. It is a long and often difficult process to create
something from nothing; but the rewards are well worth the effort. We
envision Phobos as our very own Empire of Dreams and Miracles.
