And we have the finalized cover for ALL HAIL OUR ROBOT CONQUERORS!, one of three anthologies that Zombies Need Brains kickstarted last year. I've posted the cover art below, along with the back cover copy. You can order prints of the cover art itself as well as preorder the Kickstarter version of the anthology over at the ZNB online store: Click Here.





Back Cover Copy:

RRRAWRRR!!! ZZZZZZTTTTT!!! ZZZZAAAAPPPPP!!!

The robots of the 50s and 60s science fiction movies and novels captured our hearts and our imaginations. Their clunky, bulbous bodies with their clear domed heads, whirling antennae, and randomly flashing lights staggered ponderously across the screen and page and into our souls—whether as a constant companion or as the invading army threatening to exterminate our world. We can never return to that innocent time, where the robot overlords could be identified by their burning red eyes or our trusty robot sidekick would warn us instantly of danger—

Or can we?

With a touch of nostalgia and a little tongue-in-cheek humor, here are fifteen stories from today’s leading science fiction and fantasy authors that take us back to the time of evil robot overlords, invading armies, and not-quite-trustworthy mechanical companions. Join Julie E. Czerneda, Brandon Daubs, Tanya Huff, Brian Trent, L.E. Modesitt, Jr., Jason Palmatier, Jez Patterson, Gini Koch, Lauren Fox, Sharon Lee & Steve Miller, Philip Brian Hall, Rosemary Edghill, R. Overwater, Helen French, and Seanan McGuire as we step into the future with a nod to the past. Hold on to those stun guns. You may need them!

Coe​, Laura Anne Gilman​, Faith Hunter​, Stephen Leigh​, Laura Resnick​, and 10 other authors (soon to be announced).

So, we now have the cover for the anthology The Modern Fae's Guide to Surviving Humanity. Wallah!!!!





And here's the cover copy:

What if the fae were still here, living among us? Perhaps living in secret, doing their best to pass for human. Or perhaps their existence is acknowledged, but they're still struggling to fit in. How have they survived? Are they outcasts clinging to the edges of society, or do their powers ensure success in the mortal realm? Here are fourteen fabulous tales--ranging from humor to dark fantasy--that explore how the creatures of the fae realm are fitting into the modern world.

From a mortal who offers to do internet marketing for Oberon . . . to a woman bent on reclaiming her baby from the Queen of the fae . . . to a dryad grove menaced by urban expansion . . . to a Selkie in need of a new home and career . . . these are original looks at how the world of the imagination can survive and perhaps even thrive in the everyday mortal lands.


The list of authors for this anthology is stellar! The contributors are:

Seanan McGuire
Susan Jett
