SON OF MAN is here!

Cool! Look what I just received -- advance copies of Pyr's spiffy new edition of Robert Silverberg's classic SON OF MAN! Wraparound cover illustration by me (see the full image here). Here's the summary copy on the book's back cover: "Clay is a man from the twentieth century who is somehow caught up in a time-flux and transported into a distant future. The Earth and the life on it have changed beyond recognition. Even the human race has evolved into many different forms now coexisting on the planet. The seemingly omnipotent Skimmers, the tyrannosaur-like Eaters, the sedentary Awaiters, the squid-like Breathers, the Interceders, the Destroyers -- all are "Sons of Man." Befriended and besexed by the Skimmers, Clay goes on a journey that takes him around the future Earth and into the depths of his own soul. He is human, but what does that mean?" If you like your science fiction trippy, transcendent, and mind-bending, you're gonna like this one. Get yours starting this coming Tuesday from booksellers everywhere. :)

I got mine! Last Wednesday from Amazon! Yippee!

It's now officially in my ToRead stack.

I really like wrap-around covers.
