Steampunk! ToC

Wed 19 Jan 2011 - Filed under: Not a Journal., , , , , , , , , , , , , , | 8 Comments | Posted by: Gavin

Today Kelly and I are handing over the final copyedited manuscript of the anthology we’ve been working on for the last year or so: Steampunk! An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories to our editor, Deborah Noyes at Candlewick. Yay!

It’s been a huge amount of fun getting the stories (and two comics!) from the writers who hail from the US, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. There was the usual amount of last minute hijinks trying to corral 14 authors (including Kelly!) to go over the copyedits in superquick time, luckily for me none of them were on internet sabbatical.

But that it all done. The introduction is written, the bios are in, the stories are copyedited (and the copyediting arguments are over!) and so out the door it goes. Now we get to put together a website (although getting back to the 19th century and doing a website is harder than I expected it to be) and at some point soon we’ll get to post the cover. Candlewick showed us a couple of exciting cover roughs—more on that when it’s finalized.

And now: the table of contents!

Cassandra Clare, “Some Fortunate Future Day”
Libba Bray, “The Last Ride of the Glory Girls”
Cory Doctorow, “Clockwork Fagin”
Shawn Cheng, “Seven Days Beset by Demons” (comic)
Ysabeau Wilce, “Hand in Glove”
Delia Sherman, “The Ghost of Cwmlech Manor”
Elizabeth Knox, “Gethsemene”
Kelly Link, “The Summer People”
Garth Nix, “Peace in Our Time”
Christopher Rowe, “Nowhere Fast”
Kathleen Jennings, “Finishing School” (comic)
Dylan Horrocks, “Steam Girl”
Holly Black, “Everything Amiable and Obliging”

    Holy cats, that’s a great line-up. (And I am especially excited to see Shawn Cheng and Dylan Horrocks there!) Definitely buying this.

    And the fun thing about Dylan’s is it’s fiction, as in, not a comic. We both love Hicksville to bits so it was a total treat to work with him. Have you seen his new(ish) site:

    […] wouldn’t be excited for this new steampunk anthology, except that it has a Kelly Link story in it […]

    I’m looking forward to seeing what Kelly does in the steampunk vein. That and Ysabeau Wilce. Psyched!

    I’m totally loving the new site — it’s been so long since the last issue of ATLAS that it’s a nice way to get my Horrocks fix. I keep hoping we’ll see more of ATLAS before too long, but in this market I have a bad feeling we won’t see the main story again until it’s completed. But I’m hoping to be proven wrong.
