    Hey all, book's done. Now I just need to approve a proof copy and it'll be ready for purchase. Eat this tasty cover in the meantime, prepared by visual chef, Alan Tyson:

    Photobucket

    Just so's ya know, if you've been working on any kind of cover for this project, I'm still looking for art for the Kindle version and the Lulu epub version, so don't think this puts you out of the race to get your art on this bad boy.

    That is one super cool cover. And not just because my name is on it.

    I like that cover.
    This is all starting to look a lot classier than my trashy little story in it.
    Ah well, every collection needs a tramp I guess.

    All the stories in the book are fantastic, Rob. No fair being self-deprecating, that's my shtick... even though I'm not very good at it.

    Nice cover, though you've got a typo on Vorn's name. It's "Honkonen", unless he's going by a pseudonym...

    Yeah, that was a miss by me. A fix is already in the works, thanks for the heads up.

    Purchase your physical copy of Out of Place, Out of Time at Lulu.

    Now through Jan. 6th you can get 25% off by using promo code ONEMORETHING

    Thanks to all of you for everything.

    Special thanks to Warren Ellis and Ariana Osborne for creating and fostering this environment and allowing me to meet all of the amazing authors who contributed to the book. And thanks to Si Spurrier for keeping it running after Warren got sick of all of us.

    Buy our book!



    To look forward to: We have a Lulu epub version and a Kindle version forthcoming if the physical one is a little to pricey.

    Also, I'm still trying to put some flyers together if anyone is interested in fluttering those around.

    PS. If you read the book and like it (or, I guess, even if you don't), go back and rate/review it.

    Really big thanks to Steevo for putting this together! We'd be super grateful if people took the time to make a bit of a noise by sharing the Lulu link or the Facebook link of the anthology in social media to get some visibility for the book! https://www.facebook.com/OutOfPlaceOutOfTime

    Yes, Steve, a great many thank yous. So far we've gotten mentions by his Spurriness and a link by Kelly Sue DeConnick on the twitter and I've asked Space Daddy Warren as well as Matt Fraction.

    Great! I'm terrible with the Twitpimping, so your help is much appreciated. Thanks, Jason.

    As for your thanks, they are not necessary, but gladly and gratefully accepted. However, I want to say that without everyone who worked on this project with me, it would have never happened. Your stories pouring in kept me excited, and your encouragement and vigor made me follow through. You guys rock.

    Now it's back to the Twilight Zone marathon. I love New Year's time.

    Here's to 2012, stay strange everybody.
