The best laid plans, and all that.  Right?  We know by now that stuff happens, books are projected for certain release dates, but. . . .  So the email came from Aditya Deshmukh of The Great Void Books Saturday, about their upcoming anthology UNREAL (see February 6, December 17).  Publication had been expected in a week, on March 14, but . . . therefore we are postponing the schedule . . . and ask for your understanding.

So that’s the bad news, but the good news is this.  It’s for only two weeks, with pre-ordering still coming on the 14th and the book itself to be out March 28.  And looking to the near future beyond that, I’ll also be running a series of interviews to feature our authors.  I’ll send you the interview questions soon.

So my part in this is a 10,000-word novelette, “The Garden,” first published in an edited version in chapbook form by Damnation Books in 2009, more about which — plus interview info — as it becomes known.

    “The Garden” is a fine story! I should know, I illustrated it some years ago. Hope folks buy copies of the anthology!!

  2. Hi Marge, thanks. Yes, indeed, you did the cover! As for the story itself this is it more as I submitted it, with most of the editor’s changes removed, which I think improves it. (Gives a little bit more of a gothic feel too, I think, including a slower but more ominous beginning.)
