Two happy anthology announcements: firstly, my short story The Complex, which appeared in the January/February edition of Interzone this year, is to be included in an anthology, The Best British Fantasy 2013 from Salt Publishing, due for publication in April next year.
Secondly, I will be contributing a story to Pandemonium: The Lowest Heaven. This is the latest in the Pandemonium series (the most recent of which, A Town Called Pandemonium, is launching on 29 November and looks very awesome indeed) and is described thus by editors Anne C. Perry and Jared Shurin:
“The Lowest Heaven explores the furthest reaches of the Solar System with help from the Royal Observatory Greenwich. Today’s greatest science fiction authors set out on missions of discovery, with new stories inspired by our closest celestial neighbours.”
Slightly terrifyingly, the deadline for The Lowest Heaven correlates almost exactly with that for Book 2 of The Osiris Project, but I was hooked from the moment I saw the words ‘Royal Observatory Greenwich’. Some things you just can’t say no to… (I know what I’ll be doing this Christmas!)
