So, the question I was asked on Twitter this week was "would you like to share the cover reveal and 'boost' for New Suns, an anthology being published by Tor?
I read the blurb and 'Table of Contents' and, without further ado, post both here for you now.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
‘THERE’S NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN, BUT THERE ARE NEW SUNS,’ PROCLAIMED OCTAVIA E. BUTLER.
New Suns: Original Speculative Fiction by People of Color showcases 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.
