Stolen from SFSignal’s Book Cover Smackdown:
Caribbean born novelist Tobias Buckell established himself as a gifted new voice in science fiction with his stunning first novel Crystal Rain. Now, in his first collection, Buckell demonstrates his strengths in the short form, offering readers a collection of stories that are compelling, smart, wonderfully imagined, and entertaining.
Tides from the New Worlds contains 19 stories that range from multicultural science fiction to magical realism, some in print for the first time.
Table of Contents:
In The Heart of Kalikuata
The Shackles of Freedom (with Mike Resnick)
Shoah Sry (with Ilsa Bick)
In Orbite Medievali
Something In The Rock
A Green Thumb
All Her Children Fought
Though I’m not a huge fan of montage images on covers (especially when they involve giant, floating space-heads), the art itself is fun, the typeface is nice and the colours work. His novels are known to be short, snappy works, so I can only imagine his style translates well to short fiction. Certainly a book I’m eager to get my hands on!
Tides from the New Worlds is available from Wyrm Publishing.
