Paper Cities rule!

Publishers Weekly posted a review of Paper Cities here (scroll all the way down). And it's a signature review, no less, by Jeff VanderMeer who says interesting things about the antho.

As an editor, I just want to say that I love all the stories in this book. Many thanks to all the contributors -- I think this book has much to offer, regardless of one's reading tastes.


Larry of OF Blog of the Fallen interviews me here. I think I manage to be occasionally coherent.

You know why I love Internet? Because it allows me to appear dignified and composed, graceful even, when I'm really really not.

So: Jennifer Jackson of DMLA is now my agent. I am thrilled beyond words -- her track record is beyond impressive, she represents so many wonderful people, and she likes to cook as much as I do! Many thanks go to Jay Lake who introduced us at WFC, because he's just that cool and nice.

I go lie down now.

Zombie Lenin

Fantasy Magazine online just posted Zombie Lenin, a story I'm rather proud of. It was published in Prime's Fantasy Anthology, among a number of other wonderful tales. Hope you like it.

The Secret History doesn't seem to have any Amazon reviews. So, if you read the book, please consider posting your thoughts at Amazon. Thanks!

The latest Locus had not one but two very positive reviews of this book. I am very pleased.

Happy New Year

For a number of reasons, not the least of which are cultural, New Year is the most significant holiday for me, to be spent with one's family and tons of food. So I cooked lamb vindaloo and naan, and we drank sparkly wine and watched Twilight Zone marathon with cats in our laps and at our feet. Not so much for resolutions and year end's summaries though.

I hope that everyone greeted the New Year in the manner most agreeable to them, and wishing you all the best in 2008.
