New Adventure Vol 1 Review

The Spring 06 issue of Some Fantastic is now online, featuring a review of Adventure Vol 1 by Danny Adams, who has all sorts of nice things to say about the anthology. I didn't recognize Danny's name at first, but when I got to his bio at the end the penny dropped; he's the co-author of The City Beyond Play with Philip José Farmer, a novella due out later this year from PS Publishing, and which I spent yesterday afternoon reading because PS has commissioned me to write the introduction. There's no way Danny knew I'd be writing the intro when he did his review, and I had no idea he'd be reviewing Adventure when I agreed to do the intro; that said, the novella, which I'm halfway through, is so far splendid.

The other books reviewed in this issue are Orson Scott Card's Ultimate Iron Man, Vol. 1; Stephen Jones's The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror #16; Lucius Shepard's A Handbook of American Prayer; Lou Anders's Futureshocks; Justina Robson's Silver Screen; Octavia Butler's Fledgling; John Scalzi's The Ghost Brigades; and Christopher Moore's A Dirty Job. That's a whole lot of people I like and books I like even better (I just read Scalzi's TGB last week, and may like it better than I liked Old Man's War, which I loved). This is the first I've heard of Some Fantastic, but I'm really impressed with what I've seen of it so far.

My life is full of strange little coincedences...

You and me both, brother.
