Precious Metal in Albedo One #38

Albedo One #38, including my short-short "Precious Metal" is available for purchase at their website. Check out that gorgeous (and slightly provocative?) cover art.

And...WTF?

My name's on the cover? I'm honored--in this case, being an Irish mag, honoured.

(did I do that right?)

This is one of my many stories in which a premise from a children's book provided the seed for an imaginative romp. In this case, a romp through a junkyard in a post-apocalyptic world in which no one manufactures anything anymore. Leave it to tinkers like Santiago to make things work...

I'm looking forward to reading the interview with living legend James Gunn. (He teaches sci-fi at the University of Kansas here in Lawrence--funny I had to go across the Atlantic to be in the same mag.)

That is FANTASTIC cover art Aaron. Congrats on the publication. I'm sure your completely jazzed. (I swear, if I had $$ I'd buy it to. :D)

Have a great day!

Happy writing

Fantastic publication, Aaron. Congrats.

That is fantastic and I have to admit I am a little jealous but you deserve the kudos. Congratulations on getting into such a great magazine.

Aaron Polson said...

Hinny - Thanks...I am (jazzed).

Becca - Spelled correctly, too. ;)

Thanks, Cate.

Agreement with the others. Congrats on that, my freind. An Irish mag? I imagine Anton will be first in line to buy a copy.

Aaron Polson said...

Thanks, Michael. I'm...chuffed. (Did I say that right?)

Anthony - I have to make sure I don't stare at it at school. ;)

Alan - Surely. (ha!)

Natalie L. Sin said...

Very jealous, and very psyched for you : )

K. Allen Wood said...

Awesome stuff, Aaron!

I'm curious. You ever read Wen Spencer's Tinker and Wolf Who Rules? Your premise reminds me of those books—which are great, by the way.

Danielle Ferries said...

Congrats on the cover and name on the front.

Aaron Polson said...

Natalie - Thanks.

Thanks, Ken. No--I haven't. The guilty book here was The Tin Forest by Helen Ward/Wayne Anderson.

Danielle - Thanks.

Andrea Allison said...

Well, gold stars to you. Congrats!

Deborah Walker said...

Quality publications, many congratulations. But, oh, that cover. Does anyone else feel the need to hitch up that lady's top?

Good god, what a beautiful cover. Congratulations on another lovely publication, Aaron. There's no other feeling like it.

Also, sorry for comment spam this afternoon. Catching up after weekend guests!
