Hello again dear reader or listener, it is my pleasure today to treat you with yet another wonderful cover reveal! This time for the upcoming short story collection, Digital Extremities, by one of our friends over at FanFiAddict, Adam Bassett!

Take a look at the blurb to build your anticipation a little more:

A collection of eight stories, Digital Extremities shines a spotlight on ordinary people in a callous yet hopeful future. Set across small towns and remote islands, where neon flickers against old buildings and oaks, this collection paints a unique view of a traditionally cyberpunk setting.
In 2089, a woman miscarries and seeks a way to find peace amidst overwhelming grief. Years later, a young man must find a way to pay rent outside of his job at the glassblowing studio. A pair of students, excited to go to college, install new hardware that promises to improve their cognitive functions. A private investigator searches for a missing child who has a reputation for embarking on risky adventures. Each tale is shaped by love, loss, and perseverance, weaving a vision of life outside of the megacities.

 

And now, without further delay! Behold the pretty!

“‘Touching’ and ‘cyberpunk’ might not often intersect, but they do with Digital Extremities. It swings from moving to haunting in an instant, searching for our humanity in an increasingly dim future. Bassett both honours the legacy of the genre while keeping one fixed firmly on new horizons with a collection which spans the world. Brand New Eyes gives a simple family drama a sci-fi gut punch while 36 Broadway Avenue sets two fascinating characters against a ticking time-bomb. Each of these stories bring something great to the table.”

—Timothy Hickson, Hello Future Me & A Catalogue for the End of Humanity.

//About the Artist//

Igzell is a Mexican illustrator with more than 10 years of experience in both traditional and digital art. They’ve worked with DC Comics, Volkswagen, Animex, BookMart, and other groups to create captivating art of many kinds.

What drew Adam to their work was Igzell’s colorful environment design, where detailed characters stood against some almost ethereal cityscapes and oceans. When designing the cover for Digital Extremities it was important to showcase that it was a collection of science-fiction / cyberpunk stories without losing the vibrant colors of the natural world. Igzell understood that right away.

You can find more of Igzell’s work on their website.

 

Until next time,
