Nossa Morte, an online fiction magazine, is currently featuring an interview with Ellen Datlow, who is a top anthologist and the winner of several World Fantasy Awards (along with frequent co-editor Terri Windling), multiple International Horror Guild Awards, multiple Locus Awards for Best Editor and multiple Hugo Awards for Best Editor, just to name a few.
When asked if she ever feels pressured about living up to expectations, Datlow said, “Sure. I’m a little insecure about every anthology I edit until I start seeing reviews or getting other feedback. I suspect every editor is, which is why both sales and awards are important indicators of … something (wry smile although you can’t see it).”
