Ann VanderMeer Joins Tor.com Editorial Staff, Acquiring Short Fiction

Jeff VanderMeer • August 29th, 2012 @ 8:58 am • News

The news just broke at Tor.com that my wife, Ann VanderMeer, will be consulting fiction editor for the website. Which I believe is among the highest-paying markets in SF/F. She will be acquiring short fiction for Tor.

“She brings a sharp eye for adventurous fiction to all of her projects, and we look forward to the stories and authors she’ll bring to Tor.com.”

This is richly deserved and only poetic or karmic justice in many ways. I’m really thrilled for her!

    Late on this, I know, but this is great news. I’m sure Ann will help bring great stories to life at Tor. Hopefully this will wash the bad taste out from the Weird Tales travesty.
