It Doesn't Have To Be Right…

… it just has to sound plausible

Announcement number two


It’s been six months in the making, and when I took it on I had no idea what I was letting myself in for… But the files have now been sent to the printer and all I can do is wait and worry. Yes, Rocket Science is on the giant crawler thingy being carried from the assembly building to the launch pad. So to speak.

It’s been a learning experience. I’m pretty damn sure I’ve put together a good anthology containing some excellent fiction and non-fiction. If I had the chance to go back and do it again, I think I’d have a longer submissions period, and I’d spread out the editing process over several months. Towards the end there, I was starting to suffer from “typo blindness”, I’d been close-reading so many thousands of words on my computer display…

Anyway, we shall see what the world makes of it when physical copies finally appear in April. The launch is still set for the Eastercon, and there will be some of the contributors on-hand to read excerpts from their stories. More details will become available when the programme is finalised.

  1. Looking good Ian, you realise theres a typo on that cover yeah?…. only kidding 🙂
    I’m looking forward to seeing it.

  2. Hurrah! Lovely cover art. Well done for pulling it all together.

  3. It looks fabulous. Well done, Ian.

  4. I still can’t believe that the man who tried to ban the word spaceship once sank to the level of ‘giant crawler thingy’.
