Publication date for “Mouth Human Must Die” is likely around mid January, which means in fewer than two months the story will have gone from accepted to published. It’s been proofed, approved, and only the printing remains.
I can’t stress enough how wonderful it’s been to work with Shane Neilson, Frog Hollow Editor, and Caryl Wyse Peters, Frog Hollow’s proprietor and book designer. It’s all come together smoothly, including choosing the cover art. The piece is called “and the angels above us lingering at different heights” by Dave Skyrie. I first saw this large painting this summer in Dave’s studio, had trouble taking my eyes off it, and was thrilled to have it for the cover.
