A story of mine has been called out in a starred review in the lastest Publishers Weekly! The story, “One Awake in All the World,” appears in Destination: Future, which is coming soon from Hadley Rille Books. Click here to link to the page where you’ll find the review, then scroll down till you find Destination: Future. You could also search for my last name, Jeschonek, or the title of the book using Control-F or the find box in your Internet Explorer toolbar. Here’s the part that relates to my story: “Standout selections include K.D. Wentworth’s “The Embians,” in which two postgraduate students researching alien communication stumble across a life-changing revelation; “One Awake in All the World” by Robert T. Jeschonek, an unlikely love story that pits two space-faring “exterminators” against a horde of nightmarish monstrosities; and Michael A. Burstein’s sublimely moving “Hope,” about a time traveler who returns to a generation ship to warn his ancestors about their less-than-idyllic destination. The strengths of this 21-story anthology are its diversity, cerebral speculation, and stellar storytelling, which breathe new life into well-worn themes.”
Getting this kind of mention in PW is a big honor, so I’m pretty jazzed. I’m really looking forward to seeing the finished book, which is due sometime in March. See you soon!
