Cover Reveal—Once Upon a Time in the Weird West
Today is cover reveal day for Once Upon a Time in the Weird West, an anthology of speculative fiction short stories with a western theme. It started as an idea, what if . . . and morphed from there. Kim Fielding was one of the organizers and she asked if I wanted to be a part of it. Little did I know, I’d be included with some of my favorite spec fic authors.
But today we’re all showing off the cover – I being a bit behind these days am late, but hey, I like to think of it as I’m extending the cycle. 😀
My contribution is Time Zone an urban fantasy short story:
Some people possess gifts that allow them to change the world. For Wesley Blake, it’s all a matter of time. He can stretch a handful of seconds into a whole day. But his ability hasn’t saved Wesley from being hurt by others. As a field agent for the Department of Gifted Americans, Wesley throws himself into his work to forget that he is alone. The only person Wesley trusts is his handler, Lothar.
Then a vital mission brings a new partner, Eric, who refuses to let Wesley shut him out. As they train for their assignment, a friendship builds between them. Wesley cautiously lets Eric into his life, until he learns Eric and Lothar lied to him. Betrayed and angry, Wesley struggles to control his powers and when things take a dangerous turn, even Wesley might not have enough time to get out with his life.
And with that, here is the Cover in all its glory:
