Eclipse Four off to press…

Eclipse Four, my 42nd book (possibly making it the answer to life, the universe and everything) has gone to press and will be out in May of this year.  Many thanks to everyone at Night Shade and to all of the contributors. I think this one turned out well.
Oh, I should add, if you are a reviewer, blogger or such drop your name into comments and I’ll see if we can arrange a copy for you.

Episode 37: Live with Gary K. Wolfe!

We had problems. That’s why the podcast is late.  It was Saturday morning. The sun was up in Perth, and we were set to record (well, it was snowing in Garyland, but you know what I mean). We got to discussing all sorts of things like recommended reading lists and such, then something at Gary’s end went pffft! We resumed on a landline, but the quality does drop out somewhat about half way through. Our sincere apologies for that. We hope it will all be back to normal for #38 next week.  In the meantime, enjoy!

Eclipse Four – ToC revealed

Well, since I’m working on the copyedits with the authors, it must be okay to release the table of contents for Eclipse Four. There were all sorts of dramas, but I’m very pleased with the end result. The final ToC is:

Introduction, Jonathan Strahan
“Slow as a Bullet”, Andy Duncan
“Tidal Forces”, Caitlin R. Kiernan
“The Beancounter’s Cat”, Damien Broderick
“Story Kit”, Kij Johnson
“The Man in Grey”, Michael Swanwick
“Old Habits”, Nalo Hopkinson
“The Vicar of Mars”, Gwyneth Jones
“Fields of Gold”, Rachel Swirsky
“Thought Experiment”, Eileen Gunn
“The Double of My Double Is Not My Double”, Jeffrey Ford
“Nine Muses”, Emma Bull
“Dying Young”, Peter M Ball

You can see the subtle but classy cover (and incidentally pre-order the book) over here. I should also add that I am already reading the first stories for Eclipse Five (heck, I’ve bought one!)
