Back in November I posted an extract of "What Ho! Automaton," my Wodehouse steampunk novelette.
Well, the anthology is now out, and here's the blurb and ToC :

great! a suggestion?
Excellent blog! I'm glad | found it! It seems you are of the authors who think there should be new characters, creatures in the sci-fi, fantasy genre? The old, typical like kings, princesses, vampires, little, green men, etc. are too ordinary already...
I'd like to make a suggestion which I guess any fan/author of the fantasy/sc-fi genres would appreciate? using sites like zazzle.com, caffepress.com, fiverr, etc? They could be a good way for promotion and "removing" stupidity in streets like headlines on t-shirts, fridge magnets, cups, etc. of the kind My Boyfriend kisses better than yours, FBI - Female Body Inspector, etc... Every author could use some good, wise quotes from his/her works, some poems, illustrations, etc. I'm allanbard there, I use some of my quotes, illustrations, poems, like: One can fight money only with money, Even in the hottest fire there's a bit of water, All the problems in the world lead to one - narrow-minded people, Money are amongst the last things that make people rich, or
Love and happiness will be around,
as all the chains will disappear!
And Mountaineers will climb their mount,
and there won't be any tear! I guess such headlines are way better than the usual we see every day? Best wishes! Keep the good work going! LET THE WONDERFUL NOISE OF THE SEA ALWAYS SOUNDS IN YOUR EARS! (a greeting of the water dragons' hunters - my Tale Of The Rock Pieces).
