Ann and I are now in the process of reading for The Big Book of Science Fiction for Vintage, which will appear in 2016. This huge anthology of well over 500,000 words will collect the best and most unusual SF stories from approximately 1900 to 2000. This requires a lot of reading and research. Every so often I will report back about current reading and conversations about the anthology.
Also from the past week.
“That was a movie, not a short story.”
“That was written in 1834.”
“That wasn’t an alien. That was not an alien.”
“Because there was no internet, he got away with it–look at the copyright page.”
“That was it? That’s all that happened?!?!!”
