Galactic Empires Advance Reading Copy!

Just received the advance reading copy (ARC) for Galactic Empires! For those who don’t know what that means, ARCs are uncorrected review copies. Reviewers like to have the books months in advance, so they run off a few copies of the book at this early stage of production just for them.

I’m going over the proofreader’s notes this weekend and, assuming I don’t find anything I need to go back to the authors with, it should be able to move onto the next stage a few days later: applying corrections and updating the typesetting. Still to come: reviewing the revised document, final cover (spine and back cover), and printing. We should have plenty of time to make our January publication date.

Best Science Fiction of the Year: Recommended Reading List

When I first started work on The Best Science Fiction of the Year: Volume One, I had the intention of documenting everything. That lasted about three months. By the end, my process evolved to a combination of digital and physical piles (read/not-read) and a long list of potential candidates. All of those stories are represented in the anthology, either as a reprints or in the recommended reading list at the end of the book. They were all great stories that deserve attention, so with my publisher’s permission, I share that list with you now:
