From his secret headquarters over at No Fear of the Future comes news that two of Chris Nakashima Brown's tales of futuristic madness. Chris, if you'll recall is the guy that crafted one of the finest homage/pastiches of Robert E. Howard I have ever read: "The Bunker of the Tikriti" in Cross Plains Universe.

Just now he has a story appearing in Fast Forward 2 edited by Lou Anders. I had the pleasure of hearing Chris read excerpts of "The Sun Also Explodes" at Armadillo con this August. High art and bioengineering make a nexus in the West Texas desert where the trees grow Prozac.

Also appearing is "Wild Tchoupitoulas" in Spicy Slipstream Stories edited by Nick Mamatas and Jay Lake. I got to hear excerpts of this at World Fantasy Con back in 2006. It mixes the risque adventures of the pulp-era "spicies" with the waking dream of modern slipstream in a post-deluge New Orleans. Very cool.
