Lucius Shepard Visits Dying Earth

SONGS OF THE DYING EARTH, the big Jack Vance tribute anthology I edited with Gardner Dozois, is at the printers now, but you can get a free sample of the treats awaiting you therein, courtesy of Bill Schafer and the other good folks at Subterranean Press.

"Sylgarmo's Proclamation," Lucius Shepard's original novellette of the Dying Earth, is now available at Subterranean Online at http://subterraneanpress.com/index.php/magazine/spring-2009/

So take a look... and if you like what you see, copies of the illustrated trade hardcover are still available from Subterranean. But don't wait too long. The lettered and numbered editions are already sold out, and Tor's hardcover won't be published until 2010.

I apologize if it's been asked before, but I haven't seen it... Are there plans to put this one out on the Kindle too? That's how I've been buying all my books since I moved into my new apartment and have no room for more books =)

Hi George!

Alright, I'm going to sound like a dummy (or possibly a Frenchman), but when you say that you edited this anthology, what does this involve exactly? I know about editing as in, reviewing someone else's manuscript till it bleeds ink and awesome, but that, ah, that sounds like underling work! Is there a different sort of editing?

I know, the word underling doesn't do any justice to the amount of literacy excellence I confusedly perceive as necessary for the job. Now the editors are going to come and eat me in my sleep. I know I deserve it.

Frenchman? Dude, why you gotta go there? My last name is LaFrance :o)

i hope that is a good sign?

Huzzah. Will be digging into this story today.

I am hoping that there'll be some copies sent to Amazon so that they can fill the pre-order I've had since donkey's years. I'll be very sad indeed if I miss out on it and have to wait until next year.

That was a great story. I didn't expect to see any stories directly connected to Vance's own, so to have a sequel to Cugel's Saga was a real pleasure to read. Not least because it gives me an excuse to re-read the Cugel novels (not that I really needed one).

I just ordered the US trade version at Subterranean. I can't wait to read it :)

I can't find Bad Roland anywhere. Can I borrow your copy?

Re: Bad Roland
It's BAD RONALD, and no.
