Guess I better get to work so I can learn all the stuff I need make it and High Aztech available as ebooks . . .
And get started with posting on "Chicanonautica" for La Bloga . . .
And news, reviews, and other weird stuff for Mondo Ernesto . . .
And, of course, more books, stories, and "art" . . .
Ebooks would be good. Have you considered any alternative publishing avenues? Ben Bova did something interesting with Duel in the Somme (http://duelinthesomme.com/). You could do something similar with Cortez on Jupiter or High Aztech - publish a chapter a month online, as a way to advertise it.ReplyDelete
I've been considering alternative publishing avenues. I've got a feeling that pretty soon, they will be all that's left.ReplyDelete
Is the 2nd cover your new version of Cortez?ReplyDelete
Not to disparage the artist, but I love the first, original(?) one better: it's got ethnicity, it's got grafitti (on a spaceship, to boot), it's got nostalgia.
The 2nd one looks like a Roswell saucer comiendo su propia mierda! :)
The second cover was from the British version, that came out a year after the original. I personally like the first cover by Ron Walotsky best -- I keep finding more wonderful details in the mural on the spaceship. Funny, when the book didn't sell "big time" the folks a Tor blamed the cover. Ron intended the guy as a self-portrait. I didn't look like that when the book came out, but as I grew older, I came to look like his version of Pablo Cortez. I'm going to have to seriously think about how I'll do my own cover . . .ReplyDelete
