New Ceres Nights Anthology

Publisher: Twelfth Planet
Genre: Science Fiction
Sub-genre: Anthology
Rating: 3 1/2 pints of blood

Since New Ceres is a unique mix of past and future, this is clearly what the cover art is aiming to convey, although the pastels are all kind of mixing together here when I look at it, so I can't really make much of it. I suppose neon wasn't very popular in the 1700s, but I wasn't aware they had such strange-looking shadows, either. Guess cover art is just a shiny new way to learn historical facts.

New Ceres Nights makes for an interesting anthology. All the stories are set in the same world under a creative commons license, where any writer (or artist) can freely tool around with the existing world and its concept.
