FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW SCI-FI ANTHOLOGY COMBINES GENRE-BLENDING MUSIC, ART, AND FICTION TO FORESHADOW THE GRITTY, HYBRID WORLD OF TOMORROW
Foreshadows: The Ghosts of Zero is a 19-story illustrated anthology of dark science fiction intertwined with a 19-track album of songs and soundtrack music, created collaboratively by a veritable shadow gallery of speculative fiction authors and musicians.
Woodbridge Township, NJ — March 06, 2012 – The Very Us Artists (a consortium of musicians, authors, and visual artists) has partnered with indie publisher Blindsided Books to release Foreshadows: The Ghosts of Zero, an experimental combination book+CD. This partnership has produced an anthology of 19 new short stories, each paired with a track of original music. Contributing authors feature Ed Greenwood, Robert J. Randisi, and Ari Marmell, while the roster of musicians includes Gene Pritsker, Joshua Wentz, and Bilian.
The book itself features a foreword by C.S. Friedman, while digital painter Michael Komarck provides a glimpse into the world of Foreshadows through the book’s cover artwork. In addition, Talon Dunning spotlights each story+track with an illustration of cyber noir.
Foreshadows: The Ghosts of Zero is available as both a physical book+CD and as an e-book, which includes the soundtrack in high-quality MP3 form. As neither traditional publishing nor standard music distribution avenues are accustomed to this sort of multimedia product, Foreshadows was Kickstarter-funded and is being sold primarily through its own website, with the e-book being distributed by Baen Publishing Enterprises.
Purchasers of the physical book+CD are granted exclusive bonus content, including over two hours of alternate and expanded versions of the music. A portion of the profits from these sales is being donated to The Hunger Project, a global non-profit organization working to empower millions of people each year to achieve a brighter future for themselves and their families.
