It has been a long, strange journey and not without its casualties, but in October Under The Rose, an anthology edited by myself, will be published by Norilana Books. Those of you with stories in the book (and there are a few of you here) will know just how long this has taken. Some of you will know how close I came, on a number of occasions, to giving up altogether, and my gratitude to Vera Nazarian for picking us up and putting us on the road again is unbounded. As is my gratitude to the contributors, not one of whom, down the long wilderness years, ever asked to withdraw their stories.
There is a Table Of Contents, and it looks like this:

Plant Hunter – Pauline E Dungate
Office Job – Tim Lieder
Five Hundred Vinnies – William John Watkins
Perambulations – Mel Sterling
Chain Letter, Inc. – Jean Graham
Side Effects – Ken Rand
Dragon Bait – Teri Smith
Indian Summer – Liza Granville
Galactic Exchange – Ralan Conley
Mrs Donovan – Stuart Jaffe
The Man Who Pulled Shiny Things Out Of The Air – CL Russo
Mother Russia’s Egg – James Targett
Miss – Ren Holton
Fool’s Gold – Donna Scott
A Distant Scent of Rain – Justin Stanchfield
Sojourner – Lou Anders and Chris Roberson
The Outsider – Ian Whates
Eaten Cold – Gaie Sebold
California Fairy Story – Jean Tschohl Quinn
The Day New York Reached Heaven – Angel Arango
The Tale Of A More Ancient, Ancient Mariner – Liza Granville.
Sagekites’ Land – E Sedia
When Whales Cry – Edwina Harvey
Tricky Penny Pound – Sarah Totton
Mary Nackley – William R Eakin
Yeast Virus – Uncle River
The Beach Of The Drowned – John Grant

Shantih.

At last it's found a home -- and I can't think of a better home for it to have found.

Viv is coming! Viv is coming! I can't wait. Looking forward to the rest of the anthology, too. But Viv is coming!
Hugs and happy dances,

She is indeed. Finally. I wish Teri could see this. I wish everything had gone right the first time round so she could have seen it.

I talked to Teri's granddaughter Bree on Friday, and she can't wait to see the book. She says having it arrive now is a little like having Teri return, at least for the time it will take to read the story. It may not be what we wanted, but it's still something good. Hugs and smiles, Jean Marie

I'm just sorry it's taken so long. On the other hand, I suspect we've finally wound up in the right place.
By the way, you look rather lovely. Was that DragonCon?

Thank you {{{{hutch0}}}}! The pic was taken at this year's Balticon. The hat is a collapsible silk number Greg bought when we were doing research at the British Museum in 1993. It never quite fit him right, so when he found a non-collapsing topper, I inherited it. I will be taking it to DragonCon, though. They're planning a Steampunk ball. Hugs and smiles, Jean Marie

It is indeed a brilliant hat. The shades are pretty cool, too.
