I’ve mentioned this here before, but just saw this great writeup on the Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities anthology forthcoming from Ann and Jeff VanderMeer over at io9. This Lambshead volume — not to be confused with the last one — is jam-packed with stories and snippets by some seriously shiny literary lights, including Helen Oyeyemi, China Mieville, Alan Moore, Naomi Novik, and many, many more. (This is my first time seeing the full ToC, and holy crap I’m in some good company ::boggle::) Won’t be out ’til June of this year, alas.
Less stressful of a wait is Steam Powered, the anthology of lesbian steampunk I told you guys about awhile back. It’s out now! No waiting! And to whet your appetite for it, here’s an excellent roundtable discussion with several of the anth’s authors over at the excellent site Beyond Victoriana. Check it out!
