Sorry to make your download suffer for my enthusiasm, but this is the first image I’ve seen of the Locus Press year’s best volumes. This is the galley for Science Fiction: The Very Best of 2005. The photo was taken in Oakland, California by the wonderful Liza, who is making sure these books are as terrific as they can be. We’ve finished all of the proofing and nonsense, galleys are going out to reviewers right now, cover art has been selected, and they’ll be purchasable before you know it. Yay! And, in case I haven’t thanked ’em enough yet, many, many thanks to Liza for all of her hard work on making these books happen, Kirsten for making the galleys happen, Tim for all of his hard work on layout, and to CHARLES, who approves things.
