The release date is February 6, 2015, I’m assuming as an eBook. It’s my understanding they don’t publish print versions of shorter works. This one’s only 12,000 words, so it’s definitely in the “novelette” category. Basically, a long short story. (Yes, in the publishing world, that makes sense. 🙂 )

It should be of interest to readers of fantastic tales, to up-and-coming writers, and to literary agents looking for a new, weird, splendid speculative fiction author to represent.

You’ve been warned, ok?
If you’re looking for light and fluffy diversions, well, the interweb has plenty of that. The exit is right over here by your back button. I’ll get your coat. Might we suggest something more along the lines of perezhilton.com or anything with the words “beiber” or “kanye” or “miley”?
