Cover Candy: Sirens

Wednesday, 13 April 2016

So here's the cover for the forthcoming Sirens anthology, which includes my own short story Safe Waters.

Sixteen siren songs that will both exemplify and defy your expectations.

Sirens are beautiful, dangerous, and musical, whether they come from the sea or the sky. Greek sirens were described as part-bird, part-woman, and Roman sirens more like mermaids, but both had a voice that could captivate and destroy the strongest man. The pages of this book contain the stories of the Sirens of old, but also allow for modern re-imaginings, plucking the sirens out of their natural elements and placing them at a high school football game, or in wartime London, or even into outer space.
Featuring stories by Kelly Sandoval, Amanda Kespohl, L.S. Johnson, Pat Flewwelling, Gabriel F. Cuellar, Randall G. Arnold, Micheal Leonberger, V. F. LeSann, Tamsin Showbrook, Simon Kewin, Cat McDonald, Sandra Wickham, K.T. Ivanrest, Adam L. Bealby, Eliza Chan, and Tabitha Lord, these siren songs will both exemplify and defy your expectations.

Sirens is releasd July 12th and is available for preorder on Amazon and Kobo now. It's on Goodreads here.


  1. That's a great premise for a collection. I'm looking forward to reading it, Simon.

    1. Going to be reading the other tales soon myself. Interesting to see what people have done with it. I think that "even into outer space" might be a reference to my story...

  2. Great cover. Congratulations on being included.


I'd love to know what you think.
