"Fantastic Texas"

Ian Randal Strock, acquiring editor for Warren Lapine's Fantastic Books, has bought a reprint collection of Texas-themed stories of mine, to be entitled "Fantastic Texas". I believe this is the first collection Fantastic Books has bought. The stories to be included are:

A Rocket for the Republic
The Witch of Waxahachie
The Cast Iron Dybbuk
Avatar
Silence is Golden
The Rocket-Powered Cat
Rome, If You Want To
Big Girl
The Silver Dollar Saucer
Body by Fisher
Video Killed the Radio Star
Professor Malakoff's Amazing Ethereal Telegraph

I got word in the mail yesterday. Needless to say I'm tickled pinkless. I'm now working on the editor's revisions and writing the intros to each story.

Howard Waldrop has agreed to write an intro. Bless you, Howard.
