We’ve seen the teaser and if this is the cover art for the next Future Chronicles release — Doomsday Chronicles — it’s considerably wetter than my contribution GOAT. I like it all the same.
Right now the schedule reads that the collection is due out on the 26th of this month. I don’t believe that Sam is jumping through the pre-order hoops for this one, although, if release is delayed until March this may be my misunderstanding. This collection has some big names including, I believe, 2016 Nebula nominee Ken Liu. I’m looking forward to getting my ARC.
I was counting up the short story words I’ve written over the last few years when I realized that I could easily put out my own anthology. With a little rework and a good editor, it might just qualify as a “volume.” There are enough words these days I’d likely kill a few trees in the doing. A realization of this sort is just what I needed too.
Another important bullet point of awareness. Quite a bit of what I’ve written occupies a unique space in the genre — molecular manipulation, gene engineering, life bent in the service of humanity — previously I had not considered this niche as part of my domain. Apparently I write about this intersection of intelligence and design all the time; it most often accounts for the fantastic in my stories.
So, on the eve of my next book release, a moment of self-realisation. Inching toward consciousness and mindful creation.
