Nick Gevers is an editor for PS Publishing and various anthologies, and a former reviewer of short fiction for Locus Magazine. I’m passing along an announcement of his new venture, which I’m looking forward to reading:
“Locus Online has just launched my new interview series, focusing on short fiction and titled “SF Quintessential”. In this slot, I’ll be talking regularly with influential figures in the field–authors and editors–tying in with the publication of new collections and anthologies, and looking at the state of the magazines. First up is Jonathan Strahan, discussing his superb anthology Eclipse Two. Soon: Lou Anders, on the dynamic Fast Forward 2.
“I intend that the series will help promote valuable short fiction publications and provide a forum for discussion of trends in the short form: creative movements and the rather troubled state of the market. There’s a huge amount to talk about; I hope “SF Quintessential” can supplement and augment existing debate, at a vital time in the history of genre literature.”
