An Introduction to “Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes”

Yesterday, July 10, 2011, the eminent SF and fantasy editor and sartorialist David G. Hartwell turned 70. At a party at his home in Pleasantville, New York, literary entrepeneur Henry Wessells surprised David with a beautifully-bound book entitled A Festschrift for David Hartwell On The Occasion of His Seventieth Birthday, “Printed not Published in an edition of one copy” and featuring original fiction and nonfiction in David’s honor by Brian Aldiss, Rudy Rucker, Michael Bishop, Eileen Gunn, Michael Swanwick, and the mysterious “Shirley U. Jestson.”

Click to is pleased to present what may or may not be a “reprint” from that unique volume, depending on whether you consider an edition of one copy to constitute “publishing”—a 2500-word symmetrina by Michael Bishop, entitled “Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes.”
