Long Hidden cover, table of contents revealed

LH-cover-onlytitleandeditorsI was already thrilled to have a story in the upcoming Long Hidden: Speculative Fiction from the Margins of History, because I think the concept and motivation behind an anthology that celebrates people who were marginalized in their time and place, and puts them at the centre of the story, is fantastic. (And working and corresponding with the editors Rose Fox and Daniel José Older, and Crossed Genres Publications, has been awesome.)

But now I am even more keen to read and see the finished product, since the beautiful cover (above) by Julie Dillon was revealed.

On top of that, the full table of contents, showing not only the story titles and authors, but also the era and location depicted in each story as well as the artist who created original work for each story, has been announced.

I was very pleased to see what Aaron Paquette created to go with my story — I love his work, and you should totally check it out. You’ll have to wait for Long Hidden to come out this spring, though, before seeing his artwork for “A Deeper Echo.”
