I recently pitched another reprint collection to a small press publisher, this one actually based in Texas. "Bend It Like Bradbury" would collect up mostly stories that haven't been reprinted before (the two exceptions being stories that are either prequels or sequels to others).
I heard from the publisher Friday and he said he wants to do a deal, pending some other business he needs to attend to.
This collection will also include the four stories I had published earlier this year,
* "Black Hats and Blackberrys" - Bewildering Stories, March 2011
* "Irredenta" - World SF Blog, March 15, 2011
* "Meet Me at the Grassy Knoll" - 4 Star Stories, March 2011
* "Hopscotch and Hottentots" - Shadow Gate April 2011
One of the stories, "SPPAM", was reprinted in a Bewildering Stories anthology.
I called an editor today to see if he is game for writing the introduction. I left a voice message.
