Buon pomeriggio miei cari amici lettori. Talvolta la vita riserva sorprese davvero inaspettate — lo so, è una frase che avrò appiccicato nei miei post un miliardo di volte — e questo è uno di quei casi. Anzi, una di quelle volte. Un'autrice straniera mi scrive privatamente tramite Facebook dicendomi di aver scoperto il mio blog e di averlo trovato interessante; la ringrazio enormemente e per tutta risposta mi domanda se fossi interessata a una piccola collaborazione per una specie di blog tour promozionale per l'uscita del suo nuovo lavoro letterario. Come rifiutare! E così eccomi qui, pronta a mostrarvi in anteprima la cover di SHADES OF CHAOS, un'antologia distopica tutta da spolpare. Per darvi modo di carpire qualcosina del suo contenuto immaginate un calderone di ambientazioni aride e stoppose, disossate da guerre e carestie, invasioni aliene e demoniache; poi immaginate eroi della nuova era, armati fino ai denti e tanto incavolati, magari dotati di tute cibernetiche o altre diavolerie ancora più sofisticate e buttateli dentro l'arena della morte, a combattere per salvarsi la pelle e ripartire da zero. Bene, adesso mescolate il tutto et voilà, eccovi serviti.
Personalmente non li ho letti, questi racconti dell'avvenire, però è un doppio piacere ospitare autori inediti che vogliono farsi conoscere anche in Italia. Della serie, mai dire mai.
