Check out the fantastic cover for Interzone 221. Not one, not two, but three members of Altered Fluid will be in this issue: Alaya Dawn Johnson, Paul Berger, and yours truly, Matthew Kressel. I just keep falling in love with their cover art. (Thanks to Jim Steel for posting it.)

Needless to say, I’m psyched to be printed alongside such a fine cast of characters. The book comes out in spring 2010.
It’s been a good week for Altered Fluid. Among other things:
- K. Tempest Bradford sells a story to John Joseph Adams’ FEDERATIONS anthology
- Alaya Dawn Johnson sells “A Song to Greet the Sun” to Fantasy Magazine
- Mercurio D. Rivera, K. Tempest Bradford, and Matthew Kressel share the Table of Contents in the next Electric Velocipede
Congratulations to all!
I hope everyone is having a happy Holiday Season. Ellen Datlow has posted her photos from the KGB Fantastic Fiction event this past Wednesday, with Christopher Barzak and Altered Fluid‘s very own Alaya Dawn Johnson. You can find the images for this and other past KGB events here.
Please join us at the KGB Bar tonight for a night of surreal fun. There will be slides! There will be beer! There will be holiday good cheer! What are you thinking? Get your arse in gear and come out to KGB!
