It is the cover story for that issue!</p> <p>I discovered last week that science fiction and fantasy illustrator <a href="" target="links">Tomislav Tikulin</a> had done a painting titled &#8220;Long Night on Redrock&#8221; which was clearly an illustration of my story, and yesterday I received confirmation in the form of contributor copies in my mailbox.</p> <center><a href="" title="July 2012 Asimov's contributor copies by Felicity Shoulders, on Flickr"><img src="" width="375" height="500" border="0" alt="July 2012 Asimov's contributor copies"></a></center> <p>If you&#8217;d like to see the full painting, take a look on Mr. Tikulin&#8217;s website <a href="" target="links">here</a> &#8212; it&#8217;s pretty gorgeous.</p> <p>I&#8217;ve never had my name on the cover of a magazine before, let alone had my story named and illustrated on the cover. I&#8217;m over the moon! If not over the titular desert planet of Redrock. Which is in that painting. Along with my main characters. And certain other story elements. On the cover of <em>Asimov&#8217;s</eM>. Sorry, still getting used to this!</p> <p>The issue should be arriving in subscribers&#8217; mailboxes or on their Kindles soon, and it&#8217;ll be on newsstands May 8. I&#8217;m really excited about this story, which is again a little different from most I&#8217;ve had published. Read the teaser <a href="" target="links">in my original post</a> and look for it in the July issue! On the cover!</p>
