2020 VISIONS Cover Art & Preorder Info

The picture above is a proof of the 2020 VISIONS cover image by artist Jonathon Fowler, inspired by Alex Wilson‘s story “Nervewrecking.” I’m a big fan of Alex, and now a pretty big fan of Jonathan, too. The titles and whatnot will be added soon, but I love seeing the art before all the text is put on top. It has an entirely different feel.

Publication of 2020 Visions is set for November 15.

M-Brane is offering a pre-order special for the print edition starting immediately: $13.95, shipping included, plus a complimentary one-year electronic subscription to M-Brane SF Magazine. (Apologies to readers outside the US, but they can’t offer this special outside the US at this price due to shipping costs, though the book will be available in other normal channels after publication.) US domestic readers may click here and use the Pay Pal button to place their order (one does not need a Pay Pal account to use Pay Pal; credit cards and e-checks may be used by way of Pay Pal).

It’s a great deal at a great price, and I am honored to be one of the sixteen stories in this illustrious company:

Mary Robinette Kowal “Birthright”
Sheila Finch “The Persistence of Butterflies”
Randy Henderson “A Shelter for Living Things”
Jason S. Ridler “Showing Light”
Ernest Hogan “Radiation is Groovy, Kill the Pigs”
David Lee Summers “The Revelation of Thought”
Jeff Spock “Teh Afterl1fe”
Emily Devenport “If the Sun’s at Five O’Clock, It Must be Yellow Daisies”
Cat Rambo “Therapy Buddha”
Jack Mangan “Dead Rookies”
David Boop “Organ Cloning While You Wait”
Spencer Ellsworth “The Black Plague of Our Generation”
Gareth L. Powell “The Bigger The Star, The Faster It Burns”
Alethea Kontis “Pocket Full of Posey”
Alex Wilson “Nervewrecking”
David Gerrold “Time Capsule 2120: Actual Comments from Lunar Tourists”

$13.95, shipping included, plus a complimentary one-year electronic subscription to M-Brane SF Magazine. With a deal like that, how can you resist?

Rick Novy Talks About The Princess

Remember how Rick Novy (editor of the 2020 Visions anthology) was writing up a brief piece on each person in the anthology and why he picked their story? Well, today is my day and Rick says some very lovely things, both about me and “Pocket Full of Posey”. I won’t spoil it for you — Click on over there and check it out.

I always love hearing the whys and wherefores behind stories and the reasons editors choose them. One can never have enough insight.

There’s your challenge for the day — go be insightful!
