Buried in books!Oct 22nd, 2010 | By Bart Leib | Category: CG Blog
we received 83 books via UPS today!
The first pic is 80 copies of the Science in My Fiction contest winner books. This is the replacement shipment that Createspace sent after USPS lost/destroyed the first shipment. They arrived safely, in great shape and super-fast. Kudos to Createspace for their handling of the situation!
We’ll be packaging up the SiMF books this weekend and sending them out first thing next week. They’ll probably start arriving at the closer destinations by this time next week. Those of you who ordered signed copies, bear in mind that we still have to send some books around to all the authors before they get sent on to you, so it’ll take longer. But it’ll be worth it!
These 3 books are all final proof copies that were delivered together. On the left is the final of RJ Astruc’s A Festival of Skeletons; on the right, the final of our second annual anthology, Crossed Genres Year Two. (Remember, both are available via preorder for 8 more days!)
And in the background – intentionally obscured – is the soon-to-be-released Issue 24: Characters of Color. You can just see a hint of the gorgeous cover art by Wilson Williams, Jr.. Consider that your sneak peek – to see it in all its magnificence, as well as the rest of the art, fiction and interviews, you’ll have to wait until the First! 😉
There’ll be a big-big announcement coming in the next day or two. In the meantime, read a back issue or some chapters of our latest serial; preorder a book or three; pick up our LGBTQ issue before it goes away forever; and stay tuned!
