  1. I preordered this as soon as it was announced.  Vance wound up in my diet of SF pretty early in my reading life.


    This is a great lineup and I look forward to devouring it when it comes out.


    OOC: That should be Kage Baker, not Bager, right?

  2. No, it’s Kage Bager, the fly-by-night author trying to capitalize on Kage Baker’s work.

    I kid!  The fault rests entirely with John C. Wright.

    I kid again!  Typo fixed.

    Hey John

    That’s only a partial table of contents. It omits at least three stories – those by Waldrop, Gaiman and George Martin – that are in the final book.




  4. Thanks, Jonathan!  Looks like I jumped the gun.  Post updated…with vague information.  🙂
