Rainbow's End

So excited about this one...

Triangulation: End of the Rainbow is now available for purchase over at Amazon. It contains my story, The Meaning of Yellow, along with stories from Aaron Polson, Marshall Payne, Cat Rambo, Amanda C Davis, Peter S Beagle, Brenta Blevins, Eugie Foster and others.

Here's the beginning of The Meaning of Yellow:

Sound rushed from the cinema, dragging with it several dwarves and a basketful of poisoned apples. Crouched behind the seats in row F, Maxine pressed her grey hand to her lips and hoped her breath didn't steam. Someone had left the emergency exit door propped open and frame by frame, the colours were being sucked from the move and disappearing into the night. When the screen faded to its usual black, she stood and watched the final trail of colour weave its way along the alley. The Ministry for the Abolition of Bright Things would have her head.

Story inspiration: A rather long day with my then four-year-old niece watching Disney's Snow White over and over and over and... You get the picture.

Nice. When my pockets produce spare cash, I know where it's going...

Aaron Polson said...

I'm quite eager for my contributor copy...have to see where the colors have gone.

Marshall Payne said...

So cool to be ToC-mates with you, Cate. And I look forward to discovering "The Meaning of Yellow."

Joshua, In the future, pockets will automatically manufacture spare cash. Fact. I hope.

Aaron, and I'll finally have an actual print copy of 'The World in Rubber...' Well, I do have a print out already but... In a real book.

Ditto, Marshall :D

The Ministry for the Abolition of Bright Things sounds like a tough lot! That beginning really grabs the curiosity...

They're very tough, Alan. And they have axes.

Thanks, Jamie.
