I have a very cool announcement to make

I've sat on this for a few days now, but since it's now been made public, I can go ahead and share with you that I've been asked to be an assistant editor (along with Fábio Fernandes) for the Best American Fantasy anthology series, starting with BAF4, which will be published in 2011 and cover 2010. Fábio and I will be working with Latin American (Spanish and Portuguese alike) stories that have been translated into English.

Needless to say, this is a dream opportunity, since for the past few years, I have found myself hoping to one day get to help edit an anthology of Latin American fiction, particularly of the speculative variety.

For more details, be sure to read Jeff VanderMeer's post on the matter.

Huge congratulations, Larry!

Congratulations! BTW, I’ve been meaning to send you a Chilean sci-fi novel that I’m sure you’ll enjoy. Edmundo Paz Soldán said a while back that the best Spanish-language science fiction these days was being written in Chile. If you’re interested, please feel free to send me your mailing address via email.

Very cool indeed, congratulations Larry. An already excellent anthology series gets better, and moves closer to living up to its name -- presenting the best fantasy from all the Americas. And what a great and varied line-up of guest editors that have been lined up. Seems like something to be proud to be a part of.

Now I suppose if any stories with squirrels make it into the anthology, we'll all know who to blame...
