Saira Ali and Julia Rios are pleased to announce the table of contents for In Other Words, a chapbook of poetry and flash fiction to benefit Con or Bust. The chapbook will be hand-printed on a nineteenth century letterpress, and includes work from Hugo Award winning and nominated authors.
We are also opening pre-orders now, and for this weekend only, we are offering a special for pre-orders made during Readercon: all print edition pre-orders will receive a special broadside of Shweta Narayan’s stunning poem “Nettle-stung,” illustrated by the poet [teasers for which are included in this post]. The broadsides are printed and will be mailed next week, or you can flag Saira down at Readercon to get one.
For now, you can pre-order by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll send you a PayPal invoice. The print edition is $25 plus $3 for shipping, and 6.25% sales tax if your shipping address is in Massachusetts. The ebook alone is $8, and will come for free with the print edition.
