can't sleep books will eat me

but you'll feel me in the hand, the hand that holds the plough

In cheerier news, Ellen Datlow (ed.) just forwarded me this macap retro image of the Del Rey Book Of Science Fiction and Fantasy, an old-fashioned unthemed original-stories anthology that I will be in, come April 2008, along with all these fabulous people:

  3. "Gather" by Christopher Rowe
  4. "Sonny Liston Takes the Fall" by Elizabeth Bear
  5. "North American Lake Monsters" by Nathan Ballingrud
  6. "All Washed Up While Looking for a Better World" by Carol Emshwiller
  7. "Special Economics" by Maureen McHugh
  8. "Aka Saint Marks Place" by Richard Bowes
  9. "The Goosle" by Margo Lanagan
  10. "Shira" by Lavie Tidhar

I'm really fond of the Sonny Liston story. I think it's one of my better ones, FWIW


looks great! I can't wait to hear the rest of "Sonny Liston Takes the Fall". *g*
... and by 'hear' I mean read, ;P
I remember when that story was on the Orkshop back-when, and I remember all I could do was shake my head in amazement as I realized I could not leave a crit, because the writing was too far ahead of me, and all I do was say, "Damn" in a quiet voice and hope one day to be that good.
flatterist. ;-)
Just tellin' the truth, darlin'
Excellent. And excellent company you keep, literarily speaking. :)
It's a little dizzying, up here....
take deep breaths. More Yay's...good for you..
I am unfamiliar with many of the authors in the volume...which means its an opportunity to hear new voices!

One of "speculative fiction's finest voices," eh? Congratulations!
never trust the cover copy, man.
Ah, but I've read your stories - I'll trust it this time! ;-)
What nice company!
Hey, congrats!

I really dig the cover.
Wil Wheton was asking for short story reccommendations. Datlow's editing was suggested quite a lot. Good for you!
Wil, entirely based on his blog (I have never met the man) totally brings the awesome.

And Ellen is *made* of awesome.
