Golden Age to Be Closing Story in Zippered Flesh 3; Kickstarter Continues (But Not for Long)
Word came yesterday from Smart Rhino Publications that my story, “Golden Age,” has been chosen for final position in ZIPPERED FLESH 3. This is an honor — just as the first two or three stories in an anthology are meant to hook the reader, so the last one is to provide the memory of what the book was about, as well as to prime the reader should a subsequent volume be published later. Or, as Editor/Publisher Weldon Burge explains: I’ve decided to end ZIPPERED FLESH 3 with “Golden Age.” It’s a “quieter” story than others in the anthology, and a perfect denouement for the book. I think, when you read the story, you folks will understand my decision. Also, to whet appetites a bit more, Smart Rhino has offered a list of all authors selected thus far to be in the book, with more to be announced, to be sure, as they’re added to it:
Billie Sue Mosiman
William F. Nolan
Jason V Brock
E.A. Elizabeth Black
Sandra Rutherford Webster Campbell
And then a reminder: Smart Rhino has also been running a Kickstarter campaign to, among other things, provide the ZIPPERED FLESH 3 writers professional-level payment. Need I add that that includes me? But there’s only a dozen days left to give, including reserving some rather nice premiums, so best take a look while there’s still time left by pressing here.
