    I'm thrilled to have a story in this upcoming anthology, Kafkaesque, edited by John Kessel and Jim Kelly for Tachyon Books.  Looks like it will be  out in November, 2011.  Here's the write-up for it from Tachyon's site:
Mystery, horror, comedy, speculation, paradox, political allegory, nightmare: all these things are Kafka. In the decades since his death in obscurity in 1924, the works of Franz Kafka have grown in power and influence. Several generations of writers and artists have drawn from the well he opened. Kafkaesque presents a broad range of the most imaginative work that has made his name a commonplace even among people who have never read a word of his fiction.
The TOC:
Franz Kafka, "A Hunger Artist" (new translation by John Kessel)
J.G. Ballard, "The Drowned Giant"

  • Nice to see Paul's Science Fiction Age story in there!
    • Which isn't meant to denigrate YOUR participation, Jeff! It's just that whenever I see an SFA story live on, it makes me happy.
      • Scott: Looking forward to Paul's story. I don't know that one or don't remember it. There was a lot of great stuff in SF AGE. It was one of the magazines I was reading regularly around the time I got started. Bill Watkins turned me onto it. I still remember this cover that had dinosaurs with handguns, like they were taking over a city. The dinosaurs were bright colors and very realistic looking. Loved that particular cover. Good art all around in that magazine as well.
