introvert/extrovert or just a bit of blather

This is really just an all-around update.

I realize that most people who know me don't think of me as an introvert but I generally feel like one. (And yes, I've looked up "psychological definitions/characteristics")

The reason I feel this way is that as happy being alone --although what does "alone" mean when I'm awash in sensation that constantly impinges on my consciousness, even at home. When I'm home I listen to music, mostly jazz-on the radio or when WBGO isn't playing something I like then on pandora. I interact with my cats when we all feel like it, I post online and read newsgroups and otherwise participate on the social networks. So I guess I rarely am "alone." Editing, just like writing, is a solitary job. I love it. Collapse )

After: Dystopian and Post-apocalyptic Tales

Terri Windling and I have a new young adult anthology coming out from Hyperion next year. We've seen a comp of the cover and it's gorgeous, but we can't post it until we've been given permission by the publisher. Pub date is tentatively November 6th 2012.

But in the meantime, here's the TOC:
