Things are getting busy here, so I thought I’d do a quick project list as much for my own sake as for anyone’s interest. As I said here the other day, I’m editing The Best of Larry Niven, which is very cool. I’m also editing The Best of Joe Haldeman for Subterranean, and the Best of Peter Beagle is back on! I’d love story recommendations for either of these.
I’ve also realised that I’m on the verge of over committing myself. So, in the interests of sanity I’ve recruited Marianne to work in the family business. She’ll mainly be helping with running the office, doing bookkeeping and managing me(!). She also has a lot of editorial experience I’m keep to exploit.
In truth, most of the list below are on my bibliography page, but here’s a lot of what I’ll be working on over the next eighteen months. Once this lot are done I’m keen to cut down on the single author collections and focus on original anthologies, which are what I primarily want to be doing, but I do enjoy working on them so who knows?
