The Shining Cities is now out!

Three entries in one day? What is this, September of 2010? 😉

In any case, I have an announcement on further publications. Bibliotheca Alexandrina, the publishing arm of the Neos Alexandria group, has just released their latest anthology, The Shining Cities: An Anthology of Pagan Science Fiction, edited by Rebecca Buchanan, which you can purchase here.

My contribution to this volume is a short story called “1863 Antinous,” which is NOT a space cowboy story, nor even a regular cowboy story (if you want a cowboy Antinous, look here, section VI!). It has to do with the asteroid named 1863 Antinous…somewhat…and a whole lot else, as you might be able to imagine!

I just read it through, and I’m a little upset with myself for overlooking one major error–the word “words” should be “body” at one point, but hopefully people will overlook that (it’s on p. 31, second word of the first line of the final paragraph, for those playing along at home!). If not, I fully admit to being responsible for the error, and beg your forgiveness! 😉 Otherwise, it’s exactly as I’d like it to be in every other respect.

(Apart from Antinous, other deities and mythic personages who make appearances in the story include Hadrian, Odysseus, Hapi, Set, Hermes, the Dioskouroi, Finn mac Cumhaill, and Fergus mac Róich, plus a few others…!?!)

Thanks very much, Rebecca, and all the other contributors!

You can get your copy here! It makes a great Samain gift/reading…!?! 😉
