Ann and I finally have an emerging schedule for the year, and as you can see it’s somewhat crowded–and likely to get more crowded on the events side, since several other things are pending; we are highly chuffed about the Czech thing, which just happened yesterday.
Re the projects, you’ll note we have six anthos coming out this year–each radically different from the last. Sometimes it just happens that way. So just bear with me as I babble on about one thing or the other. We’re excited about each of these projects and each of them will have our full attention. (The pirate antho date was just fixed for October and we’re in the process of letting the contributors know.) Things are off to a good start with several amazing developments for The New Weird antho that I’ll share in the coming weeks.
