Jay Lake, Gardner Dozois, and Clarkesworld

jaylake reports that "The Sky That Wraps the World Round, Past the Blue and into the Black" has been selected by Gardner Dozois for the next volume of Year’s Best Science Fiction.

We’ve had several honorable mentions in the past, but this will be the first Clarkesworld story to appear in Gardner’s YBSF. Congratulations Jay!

More Ultramas

No disrespect intended (the scene will be returned to "normal" later), but for now… we present the Ultramas Manger scene, complete with beasts (Birdon, Red King, Baltan, and King Joe), three wise ultras on the right providing cover, and Mother of Ultra and Father of Ultra holding baby Ultraman Jonias while Ultraman King supervises. Tacky giant Santa head approves.

Yeah… I’m probably going to hell for this.

Merry Ultramas!

Last night, I assembled the tree, untangled the lights, and arranged the Ultramen with care.


What will you find under your tree this year? How about SHRIEK: AN AFTERWORD by Jeff VanderMeer, the only book officially approved by the giant tacky Santa head?

Yes, they arrived today.  I’ll be spending the weekend numbering books and packing preorders.

By the way, there are still a few days left to enter the contest to win a free copy.


Time for an informal announcement….

In 2009, Wyrm will publish UNPLUGGED, an anthology edited by Rich Horton. This book will feature the best online fiction of 2008. I’ve just started contacting the authors of stories that Rich has chosen and will announce full details when we have a complete table of contents.

Shrieking into the Holidays

The limited edition of Shriek: An Afterword by Jeff VanderMeer should be shipping from the printer shortly and the Shriek soundtrack by The Church shouldn’t be far behind. This means that I should be able to get copies of the book and CD shipped out to people in time for the holidays. Yay!

Over at Clarkesworld Magazine, I’m running a little contest for a free copy of the book. All you have to do is tell me the name of a favorite holiday movie (the weirder, the better) and you’ll be in the running. Entries must be made as comments to my editorial before December 15th.
