Emanations: 2 + 2 = 5 soon to appear . . .
Carter Kaplan - blogger, professor, thinker, novelist, and editor of the Emanations anthology series - has recently sent me three photos of the proof copy for the upcoming Emanations anthology, and I asked him:
When can I blog on these images?His genial reply:
Whenever you wish. I think the book will be out early September (fingers crossed). I hope you will blog on it again when the book is out or when you receive your copy.I'll likely blog both times. Anyway, here is the first image:

Note the math: 2 + 2 = 5. Obviously an outlier - if not an out-and-out liar - since 2 + 2 tends toward 4 over repeated operations. Here's the third and final image:
The foreground in all three images is dominated by the book - the fruit of many people's labors - but if you let your eyes focus on the background, you will perceive more evidence of that labor, a computer on which rest a pair of glasses.
