Joyous day to you all out there in Shean-land!!!
Well, today is the day the issue with my story went live!
It’s a gorgeous issue, with lovely stories by E. Catherine Tobler, Shweta Sundararajan, Brian Trent, Steven R. Stewart, Daniel Rosen, Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. Please go check it out.
And while you are there, share with me for a moment in marveling at the gorgeous illustration M Wayne Miller did for my story. It is remarkably beautiful, and perfectly captures both the subject matter and the feel of the story. I can feel Sam’s desolate longing to be outside, the immature pride and exuberance of the Excite Team, and the menace of those were-crabs. Oh my word, the were crabs! And don’t forget the looming presence of the flying giant robots above them all! This is perfection. I can tell exactly which of those two guys is Kip and which is Tad, and the expression on Kira’s face, sitting on the motorcycle, breaks my heart. She knows they’re fighting over her, despite it all. I love it!
So please, Go on and look at M Wayne’s gorgeous artwork, read the story, and just go ahead and read the whole issue! I know I am.
Here I Go…
