Publishers Weekly starred review!

19 Jan

Destination: Future, the new science fiction anthology from Hadley-Rille books, edited by Eric Reynolds and Z.S. Adani, has recieved a starred review from Publishers Weekly!

did I mention it contains my short story, Jadeflower? No? well consider it mentioned.

I’m incredibly excited about this, not only because it’s a &!#@-ing Publisher’s Weekly starred review, but also because they also reviewed Footprints, and, well, weren’t so kind, which only makes this one mean so much more.

my favorite bit from the review: “The strengths of this 21-story anthology are its diversity, cerebral speculation, and stellar storytelling, which breathe new life into well-worn themes.”

Couldn’t be happier with the review, or more proud to be in such company. Congrats to all, but especially to Eric and Sophy, who worked so hard putting it together. As I’ve mentioned before, I can attest to the fine work and long man-hours Z.S. Adani, especially, put into this project.

Destination: Future, I’m told, will be out in a couple of weeks. It should be available for online pre-order soon, and will definitely be in the following bookstores, which consistently carry Hadley-Rille’s list:

Borderlands Books – San Francisco
Dark Carnival – Berkeley
Powell’s – Portland, OR
Mystery & Imagination – Glendale, CA
Barnes & Noble – Corona, CA
Ziesing Books – Shingletown, CA
Rediscovered Bookshop – Boise, ID
Book People – Moscow, ID
Who Else? – Denver, CO
Univ of Kansas Bookstore – Lawrence, KS
Borders Books – Overland Park, KS
Barnes & Noble – Overland Park, KS
Books & Crannies – Terrell, TX
Parkside Books – Blue Springs, MO
Barnes & Noble – New Orleans
Univ of Chicago – Oriental Museum Bookstore – Chicago
Pandemonium Books – Cambridge, MA
Between Books – Claymont, DE

This one is likely to be in scattered BN’s and Borders across the country, as well, especially in they are requested.
Once again, this is a huge deal and I couldn’t be happier.
