As all expeditions must come to an end, ILL-CONSIDERED EXPEDITIONS (see August 28, et al.) and, a few days ago, ANDROMEDA’S CHILDREN (August 25, et al.) arrived at my mailbox.  Rescued from its darkest interior, both have proved to be 1illCionsideredbeautiful books and, at least to the extent I’ve gotten into them, promising reads.  My stories are “Ice Vermin,” mapping never-before explored parts of early Twentieth Century Siberia, for the former and “Golden Age,” of preserving longevity in the near future, in the latter.

Both can be found on Amazon now, for which for EXPEDITIONS (“a voyage of discovery for all concerned as successive teams of hapless explorers fall foul of the elements and monstrosities lurking in shadowy caves, hidden temples, icy tombs and even alien planets”) click here, and for ANDROMEDA’S CHILDREN (“a timeless mix of traditional, modern and comic visions that explore what makes us human — or not”) here.

Originally to be called ANDROMEDA’S OFFSPRING (cf. October 17 2013, et al.) and to have been published a bit more than one and a half years ago, the book had its delays.  But that’s nothing new here.  However it’s not only back on track with the slightly updated title ANDROMEDA’S CHILDREN, it’s available now for the next few days at bargain basement prices on andromeda's childrenAmazon.   As spokesperson Adrian Middleton explains:  “After some considerable difficulties with a CreateSpace taking weeks to resolve a technical glitch, the price of ANDROMEDA’S CHILDREN has now been reduced to the bare minimum on Amazon for all territories where authors reside.”  But with that comes the warning, “the price should return to normal on Friday,” so one had best hurry.  My notch in this nursery, I should add, is a tale called “Golden Age” originally published in MINDSPARKS in Spring 1994, of an older woman in a future not exactly like that of the Sundance short film “World of Tomorrow” (see August 21, below), but which still attempts to put off aging — and death — in its own way.

For the anthology itself, to quote the Amazon blurb:  “Science fiction is a diverse playground and ANDROMEDA’S CHILDREN are a timeless mix of traditional, modern and comic visions that explore what makes us human — or not. For all their diversity, these adventures have one thing in common — strong women whose adventures reflect the spirit their namesake.”  But see for yourself by pressing here!
