Locus Forthcoming Books, and anthologies…

Mark R. Kelly at Locus Online has published some highlights from the Locus ‘Forthcoming Books’ list, which appears in full in the December 2010 issue of the magazine. I need to pour over the whole thing but, since I’m interested for various reasons, I thought I’d excerpt the anthologies listed on the ‘selected highlights’. This list is by no means complete, of course, and it only goes up till September, but it looks like a busy year ahead. If you have an anthology coming out, or know of one, let me know in comments and I’ll happily add it here. I will also try to find the time to add links to the titles as I can.
