Above and Below

I'm thrilled to be able to announce a very cool project I'm going to be a part of.

You know Ann and Jeff VanderMeer? Supercool, award-winning editors of many marvelous books (like The New Weird, Steampunk, Fast Ships Black Sails, and The Thackery T. Lambshead Pocket Guide to Eccentric & Discredited Diseases)? Well, you should know them!

They're putting together a new anthology of short fiction called Above and Below, and they've asked me to be part of it. Very kind of them. Here's the description:

ABOVE AND BELOW: FLOATING WORLDS & SUNKEN CITIES, edited by Ann & Jeff VanderMeer - Whether it’s myths of kingdoms in the sky or of strange subterranean realms, exotic and fantastical places have captured readers imaginations for centuries. From Jules Verne and Edgar Allen Poe to modern times, that which waits above or below has enticed readers with its promise of mystery, adventure, dark beauty, horror, and fantasy. Join some of today’s top writers as they take you to the heights, and down into the depths.

Love the theme. Have a story that will fit it, I think. It'll be quite a bit different than anything I've published yet. Let's hope it comes together...

Who else is going to be in it? The contributors aren't completely finalized yet, but those on board so far include: Alan Campbell, Jay Lake, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Cherie Priest, N.K. Jemisin, Alastair Reynolds, Joe R. Lansdale, and Steven Erickson.

Hehe.

That's about all I can say about it at this point. I'll let you know more about the publisher and dates etc when I can.
