So It Goes ToC, Cover Revealed

More “official” announcements — what is it about January for these things? — this time of the table of contents for Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing’s first anthology, SO IT GOES:  A TRIBUTE TO KURT VONNEGUT (cf. January 3 regarding the acceptance of my story, “Dead Girls, Dying Girls,” exactly thirteen places down in the list below), which is also announced as coming this spring.  This should precede my own book — and also, I believe, PMMP’s first  single-author collection — THE TEARS OF ISIS, due out in May, by perhaps a month.  But one word of warning:  The stories in SO IT GOES, like those of Kurt Vonnegut, are for the most part supposed to be funny.  Those coming up in THE TEARS OF ISIS (well, maybe with one or two exceptions) for the most part aren’t.

  1. Great cover! Love Vonnegut! That’s great that your story is in this (I’m sure) marvelous collection, Jim! I shall definitely check it out.

  2. Hi Marge, thanks! This was one of those stories that was just kind of goofy, and kind of hard to pin into any genre (it’s about dancing bears), but did have (I think) a proper sort of Vonnegutian(sp?) farcical cynicism. Also even if I wasn’t there, I’d be curious to check the anthology out. (And, heh, heh, if others should like my story in it, my own book should be coming out shortly after from the same publisher. . . .)
