New Garth Nix story? Count me in.

And I assume you know about his story "Vampire Weather" in Teeth?

Sounds good. Especially looking forward to the Carrie Ryan story.

It's fabulous--very moving. It's the world of her novel series.

Feel free to stop assembling TOCs with multiple writers I love. My bank account will thank you. ;)

We're thrilled with the variety of types of stories we received.

So very much looking forward to it. In particular, I just read Steven Gould's "Bugs in the Arroyo" that was at Tor.com, and immediately resolved to track down everything else he'd written about that world as soon as possible. Serendipity ahoy!

This is related (I think).

What a LINEUP! Wow!!! I can't wait for this.

User charlesatan referenced to your post from September 16, 2011 Links and Plugs saying: [...] After: Dystopian and Post-apocalyptic Tales TOC [...]

What is the difference between a YA anthology of dystopian and post-apocalyptic stories and, say, Wastelands or Dark Futures ??

Young adult fiction is aimed at teens so all the stories have teens as the point of view characters. Also After has all new stories. Wastelands was a reprint anthology. Don't recall Dark Futures.

And of course, the stories are all different (since we've commissioned all of ours) so the content of the anthologies are totally different.
