Would you write a story for this man?

It’s public. My pal Jeff VanderMeer, and his lovely wife Ann, are to co-edit an anthology of original pirate stories for Night Shade Books. Honestly, I’ve not envied Jeff any of his editing projects until this one. This one look’s like fun. Knowing how good Jeff and Ann are as editors, and the kind of books Night Shade publish, I think this is going to be fantastic. Apparently it’s coming out in late 2007, which means we might see it for the New York World Fantasy. I think I can see a theme-party coming on. Cool.
