Neil Clarke

The Award-Winning Editor of Clarkesworld Magazine, Forever Magazine, The Best Science Fiction of the Year, and More

Month: July 2018

The Moon

The 49th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing was this month. So, obviously, next year is the big 50th anniversary. I am very happy to announce that I have signed a contract with Night Shade Books to edit THE EAGLE HAS LANDED: 50 Years of Lunar Science Fiction, a reprint anthology featuring some of the best science fiction stories (with some connection to the moon) published since Neil Armstrong took those historic first steps.

I’m old enough to have been alive when Apollo 11 landed, but not old enough to remember. My dad told me once that he kept me up and in front of the TV so I would see it. Now I get to edit an anthology connected to the event.

Like my other anthologies, there will be an open submissions and recommendations period for this project. I should have the details sometime in August.

2018 Readercon Schedule

I’ll be attending Readercon in Quincy, MA this weekend. Light schedule this time:

Friday 6:00PM – Scouting Global Speculative Stories
Liz Gorinsky (M), Neil Clarke, Mimi Mondal, Anatoly Belilovsky, Alex Shvartsman, Francesco Verso

Magazine and book editors will discuss how they scout and promote authors from outside the U.S. and U.K., sharing their expertise and best practices. How can writers and editors make the best use of resources such as Lavie Tidhar’s WorldSF Blog and Rachel Cordasco’s SF in Translation site? What would make it easier to find, publish, and publicize world speculative fiction?

Sunday 10AM – Kaffeeklatsch

I’ll also be in the Dealer’s Room at the Clarkesworld table during the open hours I’m not otherwise scheduled for.
