In the Jade Darcy books, the Rix Kaf-Amur Ingesterie is a fine restaurant/bar on the interstellar transfer world of Cablans. Strange beings from all over the civilized universe come there to meet, socialize and conduct business. Jade Darcy is one of the bouncers there...but I hope I won;t need her special skills to maintain order in THIS ingesterie.
Mae Powers (firstname.lastname@example.org), the talented artist/editor at Midnight Showcase Fiction, has agreed to let me use her beautiful (and sexy) original cover for Polly! when Parsina Press takes over its publication at the end of December. While the Polly on the cover doesn't have the short-cut black hair I described in the text, Polly can take many forms, and I adore this cover. (And as a friend told me, a nice set of tits never hurts.) The new edition will have slightly expanded text, as well. It's something to look forward to.
