Perfect Flaw (editor Robin Blankenship): Interview: Tomorrow Comes Tour Stop











Today, I'm excited to welcome Robin Blankenship, editor of our featured anthology, Perfect Flaw.  Hi Robin, Tell us where do you dream of traveling to and why?

I would love to travel to Europe and visit England, Wales, Ireland, and Scotland. I have always had a great love of these places and would love to spend weeks in each one.

Tell us about your current release.

Perfect Flaw was released in March 2012. Readers everywhere are invited to experience adventures of a dystopian nature in the anthology Perfect Flaw, from Editor Robin Blankenship! Featuring seventeen speculative fiction tales, spanning many genres, Perfect Flaw explores the subject of societies gone wrong. From "utopian" societies masking an underlying controlled state, to stories of people fighting back against repression, in hopes of a better world, the flaws that create a dystopian atmosphere are brought to light. Thought provoking and entertaining, Perfect Flaw will be a welcome addition to any reader's collection of dystopian literature.
