and now it can be told

Eric Flint's announced the ToC for a hardcover anthology to be entitled, The Best of Jim Baen's Universe, 2006. (Although, as he explains, to paraphrase, it's not so much the "best of" as the "stories we could fit between two covers that we thought had the most wide-based appeal')

"The Cold Blacksmith" made the cut, if I'm growing any Weyland Smith completists out there in Radioland.

Here's the list:


John Barnes, Every Hole is Outlined
Gregory Benford, Bow Shock
Dave Drake, The Darkness
Ani Fox, Giving It Fourteen Percent
Dave Freer, Candy-Blossom
Thea Hutchison, Fishing
B.B. Kristopher, The Girl With the Killer Eyes
Garth Nix, Dog Soldier
Lawrence Person, Bob's Yeti Problem
Mike Resnick, All the Things You Are
Katherine Sanger, Decaf and Spaceship, To Go
S. Andrew Swann, A Time to Kill
Ray Tabler, Local Boy Makes Good
Jo Walton, What Would Sam Spade Do?
Eric Witchey, Brienna's Constant


Elizabeth Bear, The Cold Blacksmith
John Barnes, Poga
Maya Bohnhoff, The Nature of Things
Esther Friesner, Benny Comes Home
John Lambshead, As Black as Hell
Marissa Lingen, The Opposite of Pomegranates
L. E. Modesitt, Jr., Sisters of Sarronnyn; Sisters of Westwind
Jeremy Simon, A Hire Power
Jason Wittman, Femme Fatale
Gene Wolfe, The Old Woman in the Young Woman

I notice, at the very least, mrissa, papersky, and davefreer there as fellow livejournalers.
