We’re getting there… Pictured above are the galley proofs for Various Authors: The Fiction Desk volume one. The text is being checked over as I write this (or it would be, if I wasn’t writing this). The book contains a dozen new stories from a dozen talented writers. I’ve read them all several times now, as we’ve gone through the selection and editing process, but none of them has lost its ability to entertain or excite me as a reader. This is going to be a terrific collection. No resting on laurels, though: as soon as this one’s off to the printers, it’s time to get to work on Volume Two.
