Preview of Looming Low from Dim Shores

Dim Shores, the excellent small publisher responsible for my own An Ideal Retreat last year, has released quite an impressive series of limited edition paperbacks. Not long ago, Sam Cowan announced Looming Low, the first Dim Shores anthology, which he planned to co-edit with Justin Steele.

The book will be released this summer in a limited hardcover, and an unlimited trade paperback, and the editors have just offered a preview of the cover.

The cover art is by Yves Tourigny, and I think it looks fantastic! Here’s the full wraparound design, the back cover of which includes the roster of authors. You can click on the image to see it bigger.

I’m very excited about this book, which will include my novelette “The Sound of Black Dissects the Sun,” along with a lot of really great-sounding stories by some of the best names in the Weird & Horror fiction scenes.

I mentioned the limited hardcover, which will utilize different art by another artist. I look forward to seeing and sharing that as well, when it’s available. Great work by Sam, Justin and Yves so far.

The project is already receiving a ton of enthusiastic buzz today. Can’t wait for the next batch of information, and the cover reveal! I’m really excited to be part of the first Dim Shores anthology, especially alongside such a great roster of writers.

Looming Low Announcement

Just received news that my novelette “The Sound of Black Dissects the Sun” will be part of Looming Low, the first Dim Shores anthology, edited by Sam Cowan and Justin Steele.

The rest of the lineup I’ve seen so far, writers making their own announcements on Facebook and Twitter, looks amazing. I’ll have more news about this soon, including a full table of contents.

I’m very excited to be part of what looks to be a great book, and thank Sam and Justin for the opportunity.
