Year’s bests

I posted this over on my Night Shade message board, and thought I’d repeat it here. Karen Haber and I completed and delivered the final two year’s bests we’re doing together for iBooks a month or so ago. The books will be published in February. After that, if things go well, I’ll be editing both series solo. In the meantime, the tables of contents are:
