i can has anthology?

It looks as though I'm going to have to venture into the Little Room With All The Boxes and try to find my editor's hat again. I spoke with the publisher of Pendragon Books yesterday evening and he says he's willing to go ahead with New Writings In The Fantastic 2, the little brother of the mighty New Writings In The Fantastic, edited by our very own realthog. But don't rush out to your bookshops just yet; it won't be coming out until the second half of 2009. Which means there's still two years for me to completely kark the whole thing up.

Those of you who know the sad saga of Strange Pleasures and its untimely demise just as, I thought, it was beginning to pick up a head of steam, will know how happy I am about this latest development. Those of you who know the sad saga will also know just how unutterably poor an editor I am, so the happiness is tinged with a little apprehension.

Ever since The Publisher Who Must Not Be Named slam-dunked Strange Pleasures there's been a folder sitting on my desktop. It's labelled SP6 and it contains twenty-two short stories by people who decided to trust me to put their work out there and every time I've booted up the PC or the laptop it's been sitting there looking at me accusingly. Time to put that right. Oh yes.
