The Early Days of a Better Nation

Saturday, March 28, 2009


My fellow Genomics Forum writer in residence, Pippa Goldschmidt, has had her short story 'The Competition for Immortality' accepted by LabLit, a website where actual scientists with white coats and everything write fiction (and fact). And, speaking of competitions and immortality, Pippa reminds me to remind you all that the 31 March deadline for her short story competition is fast approaching (aka Tuesday).

I recently edited The Apex Book of World SF, an anthology of international speculative fiction published by Apex Books. It includes stories from World Fantasy Award winners S.P. Somtow and Zoran Živković, and stories from Malaysia, China, Israel, France, the Philippines and many others (some reprints, some original to this collection). The anthology is now available for pre-orders from Apex.

I'm trying to get the word out! In addition to the anthology I recently started the World SF News Blog, dedicated to posting news and links about international science fiction, fantasy, horror and comics.
So there you go: three worthwhile projects to check out this weekend. Don't let the missing hour on Saturday night slow you down.
