Couple of quick things.
First, I have finally gotten around to posting (a few) photos from the Future Lovecraft book launch back on Dec. 3rd, 2011. I just chose to do it on my Facebook account, not here. It seemed easier,what with the photo album function. You can find those here: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003347781754, though I believe you need to have a Facebook account to do so (honestly, the system is vaguely arcane, so it’s up for grabs what one can and can’t do with it as far as I’m concerned). I’ll also be seeing about the possibility of other people posting those (and maybe more of the photos) up in the near future as well. And, because I seem to be extremely busy lately, I’ve given up on blogging about the launch for Future Lovecraft, for the next while at least. Ada Hoffmann’s LJ post about it is still available for those who want details, and that may be the best thing to go read about the launch for the time being.
Second, the next issue of Sol Rising, the Winter (January) 2012 edition in point of fact, is now out in print. It’s been partially distributed around Toronto and you can find copies at the Merril Collection, Bakka Phoenix Books, and the Hairy Tarantula. Once we get copies delivered to The Beguiling and The Friendly Troll you’ll be able to pick up copies at those locations as well.
Now, for those of you who don’t live in Toronto (which I realise is highly likely to be most of you), you can find the publication online as well. It will be up at the Friends of the Merril website in a day or two. When it is, I’ll post about it here. Actually, you may want to take a look at the online version even if you end up picking up a physical copy since this is the first time ever that we’ve put together a colour edition, and due to the necessities of keeping the physical print costs down this feature is only available in the online version. Sol Rising is … highly impressive … in its colour form, and it’s well worth your time to check it out once it goes up.
More updates as they come.
