And this just in: the advanced uncorrected proof of Mirror Kingdoms, the Peter Beagle ‘best of’ collection that I edited, dropped through the mailbox today. I’m delighted! Subterranean will publish it early 2010 with a cover by Wm. Michael Kaluta. The table of contents is over on the Subterranean website and, even if I do say so, this is a very fine book. Beagle, who has always been one of our finest novelists, has developed into one of our finest short story writers too.
