When The Blue Shift Comes

Alvaro Zinos-Amaro contributed his story “The Man Made Only Of Straight Lines: A Rectilinear Fable” to issue #19, and was also kind enough to do a short interview about it. More recently he has co-written a book titled When The Blue Shift Comes with acclaimed science-fiction author Robert Silverberg.

Here’s a brief description of the story:

In a time so far from our own that we cannot comprehend it, humanity has spread amongst the stars and changed in more ways than we can count. But they have never forgotten their birthplace – Earth. But now Earth stands on the brink of catastrophe, at risk of being swallowed by a black hole. One man, Hanosz Prime, ruler of his world, is determined to visit Earth before it is destroyed.

You can order (or pre-order if you’re in the UK) the paperback from Amazon, or find out more about Alvaro’s work on his website myaineko.blogspot.co.uk.
