Best American Fantasy 4 Guidelines & Reading Period
I've just posted the new guidelines and reading period for Best American Fantasy 4, guest edited by Minister Faust, on the BAF blog (the info is also available elsewhere). If you are a publisher or editor, or if you know and have sway over publishers and editors, then please take a moment to check it out.
I'm also thrilled that Larry Nolen is taking my place as series editor -- I can't think of a better person for the job. I continue to be thrilled by the development of the series, with volume four adding lots of new staff to help gather material, and, with Fábio Fernandez's assistance, the ability finally to be able to cover South America as well as North. I'm sticking around to offer help and advice (much like Statler & Waldorf helped The Muppets, I'm sure!) but it's also quite exciting that right now, for the first time since 2006, I do not have to try to read every journal, magazine, webzine, and anthology I can get my hands on...
