Hi Neal,

Looking forward to this anthology. John Kessel is a professor at my university. I've had him for two creative writing courses. It's exciting to see a teacher and one of my favorite authors together in the same anthology. Enjoyed Shadow of the Scorpion.

Neal Asher said...

Excellent stuff. I'm looking forwards to this myself since there's a hell of a lot of good writers there. Going through the list I see 15 names whose fiction I've much enjoyed.

dunno if i would put Wright at the end. hope its good, else i'm gonna throw a shit fit equal to any monkey with processed leaves.
Shiva 3000 was a great recommendation btw. having gone to India with myself, this guy knows his slough. felt like i was still in there without the amoebae in my stomach.

Yes, Shiva 3000 was very good.
