Subterranean Magazine Cliche Issue

John Scalzi has posted the lineup to the forthcoming Subterranean Magazine Cliche Issue he's editing. I was really impressed by the second issue of Subterranean, given out at World Fantasy Convention (and really impressed by Caitlin R. Kiernan's "Bradbury Weather" novella, which I thought was just staggeringly good), and I'm pleased to be part of such a strong lineup of talent. All sorts of folks that I know and like (and combinations of the two). Of course, having said that, I find that the longer I'm part of the larger genre community, the more people I know and like; every time I go to WorldCon or WFC I walk away with another half-dozen friends I didn't have before, and how great is that?

I'm almost completely unable to predict just what SF cliches the individual stories play with, just from reading the titles. I was a bit coy when titling my own, "Last," though the first paragraph of the story gives away the game; I wanted to set up a little double entendre with the closing sentence, though, which I think worked pretty well. I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the issue, and seeing what everyone else came up with.
