Ten-Headed Alien (The Cover!)

New book! New cover! Thank you to Wolsak & Wynn and the incredible design of Ingrid Paulson for this dream cover of my new collection Ten-Headed Alien. The book comes out in March 2018. For more information, visit the Wolsak & Wynn website.

I've also got a blurb!

“Brock’s book is a sophisticated monster. This is war poetry that white-knuckles the horror story of normal life, where the most human thing about a robot is its lack of function. Here, language is a junkyard drum set of evil sounds, let loose in pursuit of an enemy half-machinic, half-mythic. Success is mutually assured destruction.”
– Linda Besner, author of Feel Happier in Nine Seconds
