Exclusive Cover Reveal: Pluralities by Avi Silver

Today on the site, I’m delighted to welcome back Avi Silver, who’s revealing the cover of their upcoming sci-fi novella, Pluralities, which releases on October 3, 2023 from Atthis Arts! Here’s the story:

“Wait—rewind. I was still a girl back then, before the universes converged.”

Guided by premonitions and a fateful car ride, a burned-out retail worker stumbles into the grand exit from womanhood. Meanwhile, in a galaxy not so far away, an alien prince goes rogue with his sentient spaceship, seeking purpose in the great glimmering void. As the two of them come together in a fusion of body and mind, they must reckon with their assigned identities.

Tender, witty, and daring, Pluralities is a slipstream-meets-space-adventure story honoring the long and turbulent journey into gender euphoria.

And here’s the out-of-this-world cover by Lorna Antoniazzi!

A person with long brown hair looks wistfully off to the right, their face separate from their head. In the space where their face should be, there is an image of deep space, with stars and a small purple spaceship inside. The person's cheek has a smudged blue mark that says "SHE" on it. The background of the cover is white, with blue, green, and purple swirls. At the top of the cover, it reads "PLURALITIES" in a wavy font, with author Avi Silver's name below in smaller text.
