Heiresses of Russ 2011

JoSelle deserves a great deal of praise for making this book happen--she worked on the anthology during a very stressful period of her life. My role as co-editor was merely facilitator of agreements and helping to assemble a wide variety of stories for her to peruse and choose from.

That said, the aim for Heiresses of Russ is to have a new main editor every year (if you are curious--I have not chosen next year's editor).

Here is the final Table of Contents:

Introduction... JoSelle Vanderhooft (upstart_crow)
Ghost of a Horse Under a Chandelier... Groegina Bruce
Storyville 1910... Jewelle Gomez
Her Heart Would Surely Break in Two... Michelle Labbé
Black Eyed Susan... Esther Garber / Tanith Lee
Thimbleriggery and Fledglings... Steve Berman
The Lady Who Plucked Red Flowers beneath the Queen's Window... Rachel Swirsky
The Children of Cadmus... ellen_kushner
The Guest... Zen Cho
Rabbits... Csilla Kleinheincz
The Egyptian Cat... Catherine Lundoff
World War III Doesn't Last Long... Nora Olsen
The Effluent Engine.... N. K. Jemisin

I am so happy that JoSelle chose such a wide variety of storytellers... and that is so-happened the ethnicities of said storytellers is just as varied. That was one of the reasons we chose this cover.

Alas, because we did not have a chabce to create ARCs (because of all the difficulties that occurred around the time this anthology was being worked on), I will need the help of the Internet faithful to spread word of the anthology.

You had me at "Tanith Lee." Though "Ellen Kushner" and "NK Jemisin" are also must-have's for me. Where and when can I buy it?

If you're looking for an editor for next year, can I vote for Connie Wilkins?

This looks wonderful! Is there a useful linked place to keep an eye on for the anthology's release? (Here via user)
