Anyway – my first completely new story for 2017 is coming out in March, in Cirsova #5. They are now taking pre-orders… sort of the mini-subscription thing again. You can pre-order #5, #6, or both, in digital, paperback, or even hardback format. Pulp-style goodness in the modern era!
I think the cover of issue #5, by Benjamin A. Rodriguez, is my favorite so far, too. This issue focuses on a shared world concept by Misha Burnett… the “Eldritch Earth.” These stories are set in a prehistoric Lovecraftian Earth, after the reign of the Old Ones. If you’ve read Misha’s story in the first issue, A Hill of Stars, then you are familiar with the idea.
This was a very fun collaboration exercise, with a chance to blend styles from Burroughs, Howard, and obviously Lovecraft with new ideas and modern styles. Very fun stuff. My story is called “The Queen of Shadows,” dealing with some of the secrets underneath the city of Deodanth.
For 2017, Cirsova has scaled back to just two issues. You can pre-order them here:
Enjoy! Also, if you want to advertise, you can buy ad space in these issues at the same link.
As a reminder, Cirsova #4 just recently shipped, and is available with my pulpy sword-and-planet adventure story, The Priests of Shalaz. You can get it here.
Finally – Altered States II: A Cyberpunk Anthology is now out in paperback! Huzzah! It’s so new they haven’t joined the digital and print versions yet, but for now, here’s the link to the print version! You can also still get the digital version here.
I’m a big fan of digital (duh!), and my Android tablet spends about half of it time in the Kindle Reader for me. But there’s still a lot to be said for having an honest-to-goodness, low-tech, no-battery-charge-required physical copy that you can pull off the shelf.
