    Uh, just pedantry, but Clive Barker’s story is “In the Hills, the Cities” (unless he’s written an interrogation of it that I’m not familiar with…?).

  2. Alex D M says:

    Looks like an excellent line-up. I can’t wait to read this.

  3. Andrew Breitenbach says:

    Is the Krohn the entirety of Tainaron? Something new? Selections from it? Thanks!

  4. Jeff VanderMeer says:

    Yeah, I know, Chaz. Just a short-hand I was using while putting the thing together.

    Krohn is excerpts. The antho is a reprint antho, supposedly, although we have tons of new content–the final story, the Rennie story, the nonfiction.
