TOC: ‘Old Mars’ Edited by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois

George R.R. Martin has posted the table of contents for the upcoming anthology Old Mars he co-edited with Gardner Dozois. It’s just been delivered to the publisher (Bantam), so not much more is known…but here’s what we do know about the anthology gleaned from George’s post:

OLD MARS is a new anthology of science fiction and fantasy stories about Old Mars (not the real post-Mariner Mars, but the one we all loved as kids, with the canals and the dead cities and the various flavors of Martian).

The anthology will feature fifteen original, never-before-published short stories and novelettes, story notes and author intros by Gardner Dozois, and an introduction by George R.R. Martin.

  1. Hey this will be an interesting companion to the other Mars anthologies out there.

  2. This is a fantastic idea for an anthology. Looking forward to it.

  3. Interesting line-up of writers. I’ll be keen to see what Joe R. Lansdale rustles up for an old school Martian romp.
