The first Arc Double is here!

ARC DOUBLE book design by Lezli Robyn

In my role as Assistant Publisher for Arc Manor (which publishes Phoenix Pick books and the Galaxy’s Edge magazine) I have the pleasure of bringing words to life in the form of new books. Well, here is my first project as Concept Designer: Arc Doubles!

This book series brings back a popular format by Ace Books, where two pieces of fiction are paired together, but flipped so that each novella starts on a different side of the book, with its own cover.

Our first book in the series pairs The Mars Girl by Joe Haldeman, and As Big as the Ritz by Gregory Benford. While widely different in style and plot, both novellas tell the story of human who seeks out adventure on a new planet, uncovers a great secret, and ultimately has to make a decision that will irrevocably change the course of their lives (and humanity), forever!

This book was a delight to put together. You can buy the kindle ebook here, the nook ebook here, with links to the paperback edition on both websites! Attached is a photo so you can see how cool the cover is for both versions. Enjoy!
