Emanations: Third Eye is almost ready . . .
Carter Kaplan has okayed a pre-official announcement of the upcoming Emanations release:
I am happy to report that Emanations: Third Eye is nearing completion. I hope to begin the process of making a proof copy next week. I have attached low res copies of Kai Robb's visionary cover art, which, I think you will agree, is wonderfully compelling and attractive. I hope everyone will join me in congratulating Kai for his great work! Please post the front cover image in your blogs, web sites, Facebook pages, and so on. An "official" announcement will go out when the book is available on Amazon. I think people are going to be happy with what we have produced. The writing in Emanations: Third Eye is truly outstanding.Carter is absolutely correct about the writing in this year's issue of the Emanations anthology. The quality is superb, as I can confirm from the proofing that I just finished giving the four-hundred-page-plus manuscript. The illustrations are also excellent. Here's the front cover art by Kai Robb:
There's obviously a fantasy sci-fi aspect to this front cover. Let's check the back cover:
This back cover's more decidedly fantasy than sci-fi, but the writings within are both and more! For those readers who can't make out the blurb on the back, here it is:
EmanationsTranslated, that means we've published two volumes of this anthology already, and this is the third one, all three being called "emanations" because they flow from our authorial selves. Or something like that. I think.
The Art of Ecstasy
We conceive three personae, all
drawing form and substance from
distant wells that gush forth as fleet
images and liquid myth, revealing
our manifold selves: First, the calculus
of mechanism in space. Second, living
breath drawn from the continuum of
eroding time-shifting principle of a
vegetating Cosmos. Finally, the third
self, the third I, the ocular stage upon
which we perceive this enfolding
process. Here all aspiration shall find
fulfillment in sentient manifestations.
Behold, a myriad of ancient shapes in
mathematical eternity, mental rebirth,
and furious sunbursts of curious
ambition: the audacious call of our deep,
assured, and long-echoing emanations.
I'll let readers know more when Carter clears the copy for official release . . .
