Title Two: Greg Egan has just turned in an 80,000 word gathering of previously uncollected stories that features such instant classic novellas as “Oceanic” and “Riding the Crocodile”, as well as several shorter works. Dark Integers and Other Stories is due for release in the new year in an edition strictly limited to 1500 copies.
Title Three: The Last Science Fiction Writer from Allen Steele. This volume is a catchall of uncollected tales from throughout his career, including a barely-published Coyote short story, plus a couple of recent ventures into the “Near Space” stories with which he began his career. If that’s not enough, the collection is anchored by “Escape from the Earth” a lengthy novella making its first general appearance. The Last Science Fiction Writer will be out next year, limited to only 1500 signed hardcover copies.
