It’s great to see everything come together – all the pieces and parts, edits and responses, contracts, art, and design. You can imagine the waves of satisfaction and exhilaration that come from holding a book, your book, for the first time. Trust me; this feeling is not diminished by repetition.
The Far Orbit anthology is special book for me. With my previous books, I participated only as an author and editor. I sent the manuscript off to the publisher and after a little backing and forthing, a finished textbook was available for purchase.
With the Far Orbit anthology, I was also involved in the “behind the scenes” activities. When I look at this book, I see a wonderful amalgamation of a thousand and one individual details that make up this deceptively simple whole.
I have always appreciated the technical skills and artistry of authors and storytellers. I am starting to appreciate the skill and artistry of the publishers who give our carefully arranged electrons shape and form. Thank you for your service.
