And I already told y'all about Tim and the Nebula thingie.
And I got a message from Melcher saying that Penguin had approved The Classics Professor, whew! So just a few minor edits to do tomorrow, and then it's off to the copyeditor, yippee!
And I went to the gym and worked out for forty minutes like a good girl, and felt kind of queasy afterwards when I got home, but virtuous too.
And I started reading and commenting on Mike Jasper's The Wannoshay Cycle, which he's just finished drafting, and it is so far very cool. Which we expected, of course, but it's nice to see that expectation fulfilled.
And I finished reading another exam book, Donald Barthelme's Sixty Stories, which was full of very short, often surreal, high impact stories. My head is still reeling. Recommended to short story writers everywhere.
And speaking of short stories -- I contracted to edit another anthology today.
I don't want that to get lost in the list above. So I'll say it louder:
I sold another anthology today!
It's not set in stone that this will be the anthology theme -- but it seems likely. So start thinking now. And oh -- for the first section, we may take reprints published in the 1990's, if they're great stories and convey some of the appropriate flavor...
