Bloodchildren anthology for Octavia E. Butler Scholarship Fund
I've been editing and publishing and making happen this anthology called Bloodchildren, and it's coming out in about a week. So time to release the TOC, and a thumbnail of the cover, and tell you two more things:

Bloodchildren is a fundraiser for the Octavia E. Butler Memorial Scholarship Fund at $8.01 a crack

and

Bloodchildren is glorious!

Cover art by Laurie Toby Edison and cover design by Candra K. Gill

Nisi, is this going to exist as a physical anthology, an electronic anthology, or both? I don't buy ebooks yet, so I hope it will be physical.

No, sorry, Kate, it's just going to be an ebook. Costs. There aren't any plans to produce a printed copy, ever, and all the contracts give us rights for are electronic versions.

Weird...I found a jawbone very much like that this weekend and brought it home.

You didn't steal it from Laurie? You're sure?

Not unless she left it in a field in Texas next to some other random bones!
