Dark Horizons, Dark of the Moon Up for B&N Bookstore Distribution
This is encouraging news! Charles P. Zaglanis of Elder Signs Press announced today via Facebook: “Barnes & Noble wants multiple copies of DARK HORIZONS in all its stores chain-wide.” Elder Signs Press, we may remember, will also be publishing my upcoming novel-in-stories, TOMBS: A CHRONICLE OF LATTER-DAY TIMES OF EARTH, in spring-summer next year (cf. July 24, 15, et al.), though of course that doesn’t guarantee that B&N will want it as well. But it does give the feeling the door could be open. And it happens the lead story in DARK HORIZONS is also one by me (cf. January 22, et al.).
Technology gone wrong. Madmen playing with science beyond their control. Alien creatures with malign intent. . . . Thus saith DARK HORIZONS’ official blurb. And as noted above, the fun begins with a tale by me, “Dark of the Moon,” of an international space expedition gone very, very wrong. Originally published in THE CHILDREN OF CTHULHU (Del Rey, 2002), the story concerns the first manned exploration of the moon’s dark side — the side perpetually hidden from Earth — and what’s there to be found. And perhaps more pointedly, how it was it got there in the first place.
DARK HORIZONS is scheduled for release this fall, with more to appear here as it becomes known.
