I realise that I’ve not posted here for, er, five months. My reason: well, mainly that work on The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction has been pretty all-consuming as we came up to the launch of the beta site in October. I’ll post about that project, and about other news, in due course. (I delivered the final MS of The Doctor’s Monsters on Halloween; it’s tentatively scheduled for publication next autumn.) But for now, I’ll just note that I’ve updated the list of forthcoming titles in the Sf Masterworks series through to December 2012. Pictured here are the jacket designs for Rogue Moon and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, which will both have new introductions by me. Of the forthcoming books in the series, I’m especially looking forward to writing the introduction to Karen Joy Fowler’s Sarah Canary, a truly great book that has been out of print in the UK for far too long.
