In truly timely fashion Claude Lalumière has posted the ToC for Superhero Universe: Tesseracts Nineteen, in which my story “Change as Seen Through an Orrery of Celestial Fire” will appear.
Timely as I just mentioned the story again in the writing roundup post on the 1st.
Also nice to finally see all the story titles associated with the writers involved. The promotional reveal of the writers back in the Fall of 2015 gave us names, but not story titles. Now the fun begins.
Everyone starts thinking about what the shape of an anthology will look like in terms of both internal and external conversation when a ToC goes live for it, right?
I mean I’m thinking about it for all kinds of reasons. But not the least of which is that my story has the anchor slot. Which would be the first time for one of my pieces, actually. So I am decidedly happy about it.
Came close before. I was one slot away from having the anchor slot back in Masked Mosaic. Which is an anthology also worth bringing up (aside from the fact that it was a good anthology) because “The Many Lives of the Xun Long” appeared therein, and “Change as Seen Through an Orrery of Celestial Fire” is a companion piece to the former. Though you don’t have to have read that story to read “Change as Seen Through an Orrery of Celestial Fire.”
Yes, I just like typing that title. ;)
So. The book will be out in April in paperback, and you can pre-order it here to get an early jump on having a copy. It looks like the e-book may be coming out a little earlier, but I won’t swear to it.
Pretty sure I’ve actually got two stories coming out in April at this point, so it’ll be a busy month. And that’s never a bad thing. :)
