By this weekend, we'll have dealt with copy-editing Best American Fantasy. It's been a wonderful experience communicating with the contributors--so many diverse and creative people, all of them excited about being in the anthology.

Another exciting thing happened today. Michael Chabon, who had been reading an advance copy of the anthology and really enjoying it, was kind enough to give us this quote for the front cover:

"A cabinet of dark wonders, and an important—no, a crucial—map of the richness and strangeness and startling range of the modern American short story." - Michael Chabon

We're thrilled about this. The anthology has been many, many hours of hard work, but it's also been energizing because we knew we were putting together something special.


PS Some people have asked if, based on the prior post, I am indeed talking about offering a manuscript critique service. Yes, I am. If interested, email me at vanderworld at I have 20 years of experience.

Hurrah! And congratulations! What a great blurb -- both the content and the source. :)

I'm more excited than ever to get my hands on this anthology... [impatience]
