Regeneration cover reveal goodness

7 06 2013

This is now slightly old news (it’s been on teh interwebs since, I believe, Sunday), but the cover design for the upcoming Random Static anthology, Regeneration: New Zealand Speculative Fiction II (in which Yours Truly has a story, alongside many of NZ speculative fiction’s finest), has now been unveiled:


The cover is by Emma Weakley, a Sir Julius Vogel award-winning artist, and in my humble opinion it’s simply gorgeous. And for the book’s contents (my own effort aside), I have every confidence that Anna Caro and Juliet Buchanan have chosen well: they’ve done this before, Random Static has been blazing a trail for NZ spec fic for a few years now, and they haven’t put a foot wrong in what I’ve seen so far.

The anthology is now available for pre-orders, in both paperback and e-book formats. The paperback price (of $NZ24.95) includes a complimentary copy of the ebook, which is a nice touch and a smart idea.

And, cribbed from the round-robin email on the cover, there’s information about the launch:

“The launch will be on Friday, 12th July at the Comfort & Quality Hotel, Cuba St, Wellington at 6pm. The facebook event is at and I hope to see many of you there.”
