Q. Can I preorder 2007 books?
A. Yes, you can.
Q. Books. Hmm. Don’t they have authors?
A. Sometimes. These ones we’re working on are new novels by John Crowley, Elizabeth Hand, Laurie J. Marks, and Interfictions: an Anthology of Interstitial Writing, edited by Theodora Goss and Delia Sherman. A little more about the books is available on the preorder page. The covers below are for galleys and will change somewhere between a lot and a little before publication.
Q. And were there artists involved with the covers or did they just fall from the sky?
A. Yes on the former. Liz Hand’s cover is by Jacob McMurray; John Crowley’s features a Rosamund Purcell photograph, and the Interfictions features a photo of a box made (in all senses of the word) by Connie Toebe.
More to come on these as the months slip and stutter by until Bang! suddenly it will be April, the snow will turn to rain, and these books will be getting out there to bookshops. The excitement! The design*! The shipping complications! The paper weights! Wait. The text, baby, the text.
