Anthology work

A thought: over the past year I’ve come to realise how little I understand the art of editing anthologies, how much I’ve learned about doing it, and how much there is still to learn.  The whole management of the editing process is a delicate thing, and I continue to puzzle over it.  There’s editing stories, sequencing books and so on.  My current obsession has become truth in advertising. I’ve frankly made mistakes — honestly, but still mistakes — when it comes to the presentation of books: matching titles to covers to contents to themes to introductions and so on.  I’ve been forming some very strong views on how ‘truth in advertising’ impacts on these things, on how you should deal fairly with readers, and so on.  It’s an interesting process.
