  1. Thank you for the signal boost! I’m happy you find the anthology promising.

    Please note that the image you posted is not the cover — it’s part of a flyer that my co-editor, Kay Holt, created for the announcement of the anthology at Readercon. Also, the link at the end of your article has not only the TOC but teasers of each story.

    • Ahha, thanks for the update! (I figured it might be an early cover or something along those lines – SF Signal posted up a thumbnail earlier).

      I was at the talk at ReaderCon when you spoke about this project – I’m very pleased to see that it’s a publisher in our humble state releasing it!
