1. Here’s an interview with me at the Qwillery, mostly about the new book.

2. I sold a story to Asimov’s Science Fiction, “The Catastrophe of Cities.”

3. People here who remember Lucius fondly (and who wouldn’t?) should check out "A Brief History of Books That Do Not Exist," passed along by Gordon Van Gelder.

Remembering David Hartwell

Jan. 21st, 2016 | 04:57 pm
posted by: ljgoldstein in theinferior4

David Hartwell edited more of my books than anyone else, including the first book I ever sold.  He was a superb editor, one of the absolute best.  He could talk about balance and structure and theme and wholeness, and then pivot to telling you just why this one word on page 131 doesn’t work and you should find a substitute.  With my first book he was kind and patient, walking a complete newbie through a very complicated process.  Then, as my career went on, I started to challenge him on some of his choices — but I learned that I had to have a damn good argument for him to consider that I might be right.

He knew more about fantasy and science fiction than almost anyone I’d ever met, from its beginnings to the present, with its wild proliferation of categories — and he could talk literary theory on top of that.  He had definite Ideas about the field, what sf was supposed to do, why one trend or another was good or bad.  I was lucky enough to hear him and Charles Brown (the other person I knew who knew everything about the field) talk theory several times.  My mouth stayed open the entire time, and I never did get a word in edgewise — which was fine, because I don’t know if I could have added anything.

He was also, sometimes, very frustrating to work with.  His idea of cover art, of what would sell a book, could be very strange — not surprising, I guess, for someone who favored garish ties along with mismatched shirt and pants.

I’d like to think he and Charles are right now picking up where they left off, talking about the latest developments in the field.  I can just imagine him saying, “Didn’t I warn you about this back in 2008?”
