Well, this is definitely weird. I have just confirmed news that I received yesterday. I’ve just had my first book of 2006 published – I just didn’t know it. The anthology Best Short Novels: 2004, which was published by Andy and the gang at the SFBC, has just been reprinted by iBooks under the title Modern Greats of Science Fiction: Nine Novellas of Distinction. I’ve not seen it, have no idea what it looks like, and need to chase up contributors’ copies and such, but I’m happy to see it get a trade release. I always hoped this series would do really well for the SFBC and then sell on to a reprint market.
