Anthology: For Sale — SOLD!

I was mistakenly holding off announcing this, because in my glee-induced stupor I misunderstood many of the things my agent told me on the phone the other day. So anyway, here’s the announcement:

Night Shade Books will be publishing my post-apocalyptic reprint anthology Wastelands. Publication details are up in the air at this point, but it will probably be published in Summer 2007, as a trade paperback.
