I’ve been doing the Best Short Novels series with Andrew Wheeler at the SF Book Club for a while now, and it looks like I’ll be doing an original with him next year (I think – fingers crossed). He gives a brief but interesting history of SFBCs anthos here.
I thought I’d also let you see the Table of Contents for The New Space Opera, now that we’re finished (for the moment).
