Beauty of Death Final Table of Contents, New Cover Revealed

The release date, also, should be in June, or so said this morning’s Facebook announcement.  The anthology, Alessandro Manzetti’s THE BEAUTY OF DEATH (cf. April 19, January 23), and the story, my H. Rider Haggardesque (sort of) “Gold,” printed here for the first time.  Elections are coming — shall we vote for greed?  Or at least the story pertains to greed, and how one with that to spare but little money did something about it.

So herewith the contents (look for me seventeen places down, a tad over a third of the way down the contents) as well as a whole new cover design.  Enjoy, enjoy!

  1. Note your name and Bruce’s appear on the cover along with many others but mine does not (it was a collaboration, and the only one). I guess I am “And Many Others”. He’s got Names in this collection and it promises to be excellent! Go, us!

  2. Oh wait! Your name is missing from the front cover too! GEEZ!!!!!!!!!!! dammit

  3. Hi Marge, yes, I think my name was on the cover in an earlier design, but disappeared on this new one. Oh, well, it’s the stories that count and, as you say, there are a lot of classy names in this one, whether on cover or not.
