I received my contributor copy for The Year’s Top Robot and AI Stories, edited by Allan Kaster. It looks great! I like the varied cool and stern looking robots on the cover of the book. These robots, who are standing face forward as if about to face off with the reader, are quite intricate and menacing, with effuse light passing through their glass/translucent elements. Though maybe I shouldn’t judge their nonhuman expressions as menacing… maybe they are kind and generous, and that’s just how their organic/mechanical bodies display that benevolence. I guess I won’t know until I interact with them!
Also excited to share a Table of Contents with some other wonderful writers!
My story in the anthology is “Mixology for Humanity’s Sake” first published in Make Shift edited by Gideon Lichfield and published by MIT Press.
Good news–the same story will also be republished in Forever Magazine, edited by Neil Clarke. Forthcoming!
Glad the story is getting out there in more venues than one!
December is a month for good spirits and cheer…
Happy holidays everyone!
Hope you enjoy the winter festivities and lights!
