There’s a funny thing about contributing to an anthology that I’ve never really considered much before now, perhaps mostly because this is the first time I’ve been a contributor without also being an editor. With Human 76, I was involved in discussions and conversations about the stories and the process, and I did read early drafts of a few of the stories. But I haven’t read most of the stories in the book at all and I haven’t read the final versions of any of them, save my own.
I have ordered my paperback copies, of course. One for me, one for my Dad, and a couple for the library of the school where I teach. I had them all shipped to my parent’s place in Canada, because we’ll be visiting there in a few weeks and it was drastically more expensive to have them shipped to China. I was planning to wait until we got there to read the book, but… well, I don’t want to wait that long.
And that’s when I had the idea to do what I’m going to do.
I have grabbed a copy of the ebook, which is available for free right now through Lulu.com and soon through Amazon, and I am not going to wait. I’ll read and review each individual story here on the blog, one every other day.
It will be glorious!
