build your own anthology

If, like me, you love short fiction that has appeared in various publications (such as Asimov's, F&SF, Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, Realms of Fantasy, Interzone and other hard-to-find-without-a-subscription magazines) and want them on your bookshelf, then AnthologyBuilder is for you. AnthologyBuilder is the brainchild of Nancy Fulda, author and assistant editor of the speculative fiction magazine Jim Baen's Universe.

You can choose the stories you want from the growing list of short stories (from classics by Hans Christian Andersen, Edgar Allan Poe and Jane Austen to speculative fiction by Ted Kosmatka, Tobias Buckell, Mary Robinette Kowal, Jay Lake and Ben Rosenbaum), write an introduction, choose a cover and the book is sent to you, Mr. Anthologist.

It's particularly gratifying because the customizing feature ensures you get what you want (any Year's Best antho has stories that make someone wince). 350 pages worth, in fact.

A number of my stories are there, so I'm a happy puppy. If you're an author and you're not on the site, go and submit your story to Nancy Fulda for review (it must have been previously published).

So, apart from the anthos I'm editing or will be editing in the next couple of months (Philippine Speculative Fiction IV and the Fully Booked contest antho), I'm happily putting together another one online.
