Huh. Well, that’s a curious thought. LinkedIn tells me that Coode Street Productions started up in March 1997, which would mean that it would be twenty years old next year.
The date, of course, isn’t technically correct. I must have added it to cover my anthology editing career. That would have started around then. Jeremy Byrne and I pitched The Year’s Best Australian Science Fiction and Fantasy to Louise Thurtell at HarperCollins Australia around then. Jeremy might have more precise dates.
The Coode St name wasn’t in play then, though. That came a little later. Probably in mid-1999. I was living in a place on Coode St in Mt Lawley then and decided to produce a review magazine with Steven Paulsen for the 1999 WorldCon in Melbourne. We only produced a single issue, but that was the birth of Coode Street Publications (probably in June 1999).
While the Coode St anniversary is incorrect, the anthology anniversary is not. I feel like I should do something to commemorate the 20 years of anthology editing come next March, but I’m not quite sure how.
