The Longest Road in the Universe Cover Reveal!

I'm delighted to reveal the cover for my forthcoming collection The Longest Road in the Universe: A Collection of Fantastical Tales. The art is a piece entitled "The Ash Room" and was originally commissioned from the brilliant Nancy Farmer by Murky Depths for the title story when it was first published in Issue #7 of that magazine. The equally brilliant Kimberly Mayfield of KFX Graphic Design turned the art into a book cover, for which I'm most grateful. Even better, the collection itself will contain the other piece of art commissioned for the title story entitled "Growing Roses on Europa."

The Longest Road in the Universe is currently slated for release on Samhain (October 31st) of this year, though I'm anticipating a possible production delay as a result of my academic schedule. I'll keep you posted.

When Words Collide 2016

Swati Chavda, C.S. MacCath, and Claire McCagueI've just returned from my first When Words Collide in Calgary, Alberta, where I sat on the "Creating a Language or Dialect for your Alien Character" panel with the lovely Jane Ann MacLachlan (not pictured), Swati Chavda, and Claire McCague. They were knowledgeable panelists, and we spent a great hour together chatting about the physiology, psychology, and cultural characteristics of language. I'm looking forward to next year's festival already!
