Seeds of Change was profiled today on SCI FI Wire, the news service of the SCI FI Channel.
Suvudu.com kindly talked up Seeds of Change recently: "People read for different reasons. Some read for entertainment value, wanting a fun release to take them away from reality for a few hours. Others read to learn something more about themselves through the characters they come to know and love or the situations those characters find themselves in. Seeds of Change is a new science fiction anthology that combines both!"
John Klima just gave me a nice write-up for Tor.com, in which he talks about my anthology projects, and gives special kudos to Seeds of Change.
Rose Fox of Publishers Weekly interviewed me for the PW Genreville blog. It’s for a feature called "Nuts & Bolts," so as the name implies the interview sort of explores how Seeds of Change was born and how the book came together.
Ciprian Rosu of the Techcurse blog found the Seeds of Change trailer and likes what he sees: "Of all the browsed trailers this one amazed me the most AND it made me curious enough to actually order the book. It felt like watching a short documentary about our near future. Quite the hook for my elitist intellectual approach to technology. Further research led me here: http://www.seedsanthology.com/. That’s my Catch of the week-end, a smart book with a smart trailer attached."
I’m included in the latest SF Signal Mind Meld, which asks "What would you change about the SF/fantasy field?" Excerpt from my contribution: "From an editorial perspective, I think maybe that we don’t often enough challenge writers to be great. Not all stories (or writers) have greatness inside of them, but I think that perhaps too often we accept and publish good stories that truly could be great if the writer was just pushed to *make it* great. It seems like editors used to do this routinely, if one can accept the statements one reads in historical accounts at face value. Editors like John W. Campbell and Harlan Ellison are frequently cited as having done a lot to mold and shape the fiction they published. It could be that this is still happening today, but I don’t hear about it very often and don’t often see it–instead I find myself reading good stories in which I find greatness lurking inside them. I don’t know what the reason for this is, or even if it is a true problem–good stories are, after all *good*–but it’s something I’ve been thinking about."
It also features the opinions of Seeds of Change contributors Blake Charlton, Jay Lake, Mark Budz, Ken MacLeod, Jeremiah Tolbert and Nnedi Okorafor-Mbachu.
Seeds of Change was recently featured on the Amazon.com blog Omnivoracious, in which Jeff VanderMeer asked me to name five ways you can plant real-life seeds of change.
