The Silverberg Business cover - click to view full sizeWe are happy to announce a new novel — Robert Freeman Wexler’s The Silverberg Business, coming in trade paperback and ebook in 2022 — and reveal the cover today. The cover art is by a long time favorite of ours, musician and artist Jon Langford, whose art is a perfect fit for this novel of 19th-century Texas where everything is weirder than it first seems.

We have long admired Robert’s stories since we first published his story “Suspension” in the eighth issue of LCRW. One of the early readers of the novel, Daryl Gregory, author of Revelator, had this to say:

The Silverberg Business hits like a hurricane—there’s strangeness and beauty on every page. The novel is that rare thing, a weird western that’s truly weird, set in a Texas that’s simultaneously gritty, violent, and real, yet soaked in myth. Don’t miss this.”

There’ll be lots more posted about it before, on, and after the publication date, August 22, 2022, and in the meantime, hey, Jon Langford!
