All new and…well, not shiny, new and matte!
AX has a novella to read. Aside, that is, from the BrazenHead slushpile.
A minor note: Through some eminently forgiveable oversight, the acknowledgments I meant to append to The New People were left out. So here they are:
Thanks to Betty Harrington for a sensitive, insightful, tactful reading of the first draft.
Thanks to Christopher Fletcher for publishing this later draft, to Jeff Lund for the artwork, and to Brandon Bell for sharing the covers.
Thanks to the late Terry Carr and to Robert Silverberg who, eons ago, rightfully declined to publish the first attempt at wrestling some of these themes into submission.
Thanks especially to Ivri Lider for the music that inspired and soundtracked the work, notably the exhilarating CD Ha’anashim Ha’chadashim and the blistering singles “Rak Tevakesh” and “Hasadot Ha’adumim.”
