Good morning, everyone!
I have a cover reveal for you all this morning. I am, quite literally, so excited for this book. Or, rather, anthology.
I don’t normally go for anthologies – I like longer books that take me forever and a day to get through. But the synopsis for this sounds absolutely incredible, and it is definitely one I would love to read when it comes out.
If you’re interested in science fiction, fantasy or even horror, then you’re going to want to read on. If you’re looking for a diverse range of authors, then you’re also going to want to read on.
So, with many thanks to Rebellion Publishing, I present to you…New Suns…
I mean… what more can you want? It’s stunning! The incredible art work has been designed by the talented Yoshi Yoshitani. I love the bold colour contrast and the depth to the image and the abstract nature of the background.
If you want to know a little more, here’s a little about the book:
About the book:
‘There’s nothing new under the sun, but there are new suns.’ Proclaimed by Octavia E. Butler
New Suns: Original Speculative Fiction by People of Colorshowcases emerging and seasoned writers of many races telling stories filled with shocking delights, powerful visions of the familiar made strange.
Between this book’s covers burn tales of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and their indefinable overlappings. These are authors aware of our many possible pasts and futures, authors freed of stereotypes and clichéd expectations, ready to dazzle you with their daring genius.
Unexpected brilliance shines forth from every page.
