(Re. Chocolat) “Attention” Cover, Authors Announced

Arrived the missive Monday morning:  “Coming February 20, 2016! IT’S COME TO OUR ATTENTION from Third Flatiron Anthologies contains fourteen imaginative speculative fiction short stories about things that could be happening quietly, without a lot of fanfare, but which could still be extremely significant or make a big difference.”  And while the contents page as such wasn’t reproduced, there was an authors’ list, some names on which may be faattnpreview250-Chocolatmiliar.  “Contributors include Pauline J. Alama, James H. Zorn, Wendy Nikel, Philip Brian Hall, Hunter Liguore, Nyki Blatchley, James Dorr, Greg Beatty, Terri Bruce, Joel Richards, Marie DesJardin, Arthur M. Doweyko, E. M. Eastick, and Lisa Timpf.”  That’s one more part of the life of the writer, a fun part, I think, especially the cover preview giving a notion of what an artist in a different medium thinks of it all.

It’s nice to have an exact date too, and while we may not have titles yet for all the stories, we do know one.  Mine, that is, “Chocolat” (see January 2, December 11; also November 3 2014 for an earlier mention), the tale of a Frenchman and his love for candy.  But only that made of the finest chocolate or, at the least, that concocted from pure cocoa butter.

Why?  In less than a month we can all find out!


  1. And not surprisingly, 2016 sees the fruits of your labors! A lucky year for the reading audience out there!
