The Next Big Thing [12 Dec 2012|04:59pm]

Originally published at John Joseph Adams. You can comment here or there.

I was tagged by Charles Tan to take part in The Next Big Thing meme, which basically asks writers (and editors) to answer the same set of questions and hops from blog to blog.

Mad Scientist's Guide to World DominationWhat is the title of your next book?

That depends on what is meant by “next.” The next book I have that’s coming out is The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination (Feb. 19, 2013). That’ll be followed shortly thereafter by Oz Reimagined: New Tales from the Emerald City and Beyond (Feb. 26, 2013), which I co-edited with Douglas Cohen. And just recently released were Epic: Legends of Fantasy (Nov. 6, 2012) and the revised and expanded second edition of my anthology Brave New Worlds: Dystopian Stories (Dec. 4, 2012). If “next” means the next book that I’m working on now, then that’s Wastelands, Vol. II: More Stories of the Apocalypse (Summer 2013).

For purposes of the meme here, since I have to pick one, I’ll go with the mad scientist anthology.

Where did the idea come from for the book?

I was listening to the Escape Pod episode featuring Jeremiah Tolbert’s story “Instead of a Loving Heart” (which I ended up including as one of two reprints in the anthology), which I loved, and I thought, “Hey, you know what I like? Mad scientists. Someone should do a mad scientist anthology.” And, being a mad scientist an anthologist myself, I decided to be the one to do it. Then, fortuitously, Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible came along, and made a mad scientist anthology super-viable.

What genre does your book fall under?

It’s an anthology of stories about mad scientists and evil geniuses, so it’s mostly science fiction, with some fantasy and a liberal dose of humor in many cases.

What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?

I don’t care but I would like—nay, DEMAND—it be directed by Christopher Nolan. Or, given the humorous slant of most of the book, maybe Edgar Wright.

What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?

Evil geniuses are always so keen on telling captured heroes all their fiendish plans; isn’t it about time someone gave them a platform such as this one to reach the masses with their messages of hope death and prosperity destruction?

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

It will be published by Tor Books (Feb. 19, 2013). I’m represented by Joe Monti of Barry Goldblatt Literary.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?

It took about six or nine months or so to assemble the anthology, I guess, if you count all the time I gave the authors to write their stories.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

It is beyond compare. If any dare to even stand in its shadow, they will be utterly and mercilessly destroyed.

Well, actually…I suppose there’s the Dr. Horrible comics, and any superhero anthologies, such as Lou Anders’s Masked.

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

World domination. Editing the anthology was actually an integral part of my own evil plan for taking over the world. See, I just got some of the greatest creative minds of our time to dream up various world domination scenarios under the guise of fiction, which I will of course exploit myself.

First order of business: owning and reading The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination will be mandatory!

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

As research for the anthology, I had to do a lot of scouting to find the right Pacific island to build my evil lair. An evil lair has to be on an island, of course, and it requires a certain level of shark-infestation in the waters, so it can be difficult to find just the right spot, especially with all the mad scientist competition for lair real estate. (Plus, you can’t use any of the ones the government tested nukes on…well, actually, I can see that being of use to SOME people, but it’s not my thing.)

I’m told tradition dictates, I’m to tag five people, and thus urge them to participate. They will or they won’t! (I am a benevolent dictator!) Hope you check out their blogs next week:

A Note About LIGHTSPEED Subscriptions [09 Nov 2012|09:00am]

Originally published at John Joseph Adams. You can comment here or there.

You may have noticed that Lightspeed’s subscription price went up recently, from $1.99 an issue to $2.99 an issue (e.g., from $23.88 to $35.88 annually). I just wanted to briefly explain why. A version of this note is going to run in the December editorial, but I wanted to post about it sooner rather than later.

As many of you know, Lightspeed has been available as a subscription via Amazon.com’s Periodicals program since late 2011. What you may not have known is that Amazon actually sets the price on those subscriptions. When Lightspeed first launched as an Amazon subscription, it was before the Lightspeed-Fantasy merger, at which point the issues were about 30,000-35,000 words long. At that time, we sold individual issues for $2.99 and Amazon priced Lightspeed at $1.99 a month for subscribers.

Post-merger, we doubled our amount of fiction content by merging Fantasy Magazine into Lightspeed, and then also added in the novella reprints to each ebook issue as well, taking each ebook issue to around 80,000-85,000 words total. We raised our cover price to $3.99, but Amazon kept our subscription price at $1.99 per issue; Amazon reviews periodicals pricing on their own schedule—regardless of what the publisher may prefer—so it wasn’t until the past couple of weeks that they reviewed the pricing for Lightspeed. After their review, they adjusted the subscription price up to $2.99, due, we assume, to the fact that each issue of the magazine is now much longer. Our individual issue price remains at $3.99 an issue, so subscribers will still be saving a dollar an issue by subscribing (or about 25% off the cover price).

So, the price increase is not something that was under our control, but we feel like it is a fair price for the magazine, and we hope you’ll agree and continue to subscribe. Rest assured, we’re not going to take this newfound income and spend it frivolously; indeed, we plan to take it and invest it back into Lightspeed, to make it the best magazine it can be.

I recently sold a new anthology that I’m now free to announce: OZ REIMAGINED, which I’m co-editing with Douglas Cohen (formerly of Realms of Fantasy). Pop over to io9 to read the press release about the anthology. Below is the work-in-progress cover by artist Galen Dara, who will also be illustrating every story in the anthology. It contains “reimaginings” of L. Frank Baum’s Oz by a variety of authors, including: Orson Scott Card, Tad Williams, Jane Yolen, Seanan McGuire, Jonathan Maberry, Simon R. Green, David Farland, and many others–plus a foreword by Gregory Maguire, the renowned author of Wicked.

Epic [22 Oct 2012|12:01am]

Originally published at John Joseph Adams. You can comment here or there.

There is a sickness in the land. Prophets tell of the fall of empires, the rise of champions. Great beasts stir in vaults beneath the hills, beneath the waves. Armies mass. Gods walk. The world will be torn asunder.

Epic fantasy is storytelling at its biggest and best. From the creation myths and quest sagas of ancient times to the mega-popular fantasy novels of today, these are the stories that express our greatest hopes and fears, that create worlds so rich we long to return to them again and again, and that inspire us with their timeless values of courage and friendship in the face of ultimate evil—tales that transport us to the most ancient realms, and show us the most noble sacrifices, the most astonishing wonders.

Now acclaimed editor John Joseph Adams (Wastelands, The Living Dead) brings you the best tales set in the most popular settings of today’s leading authors of epic fantasy. Return again to lands you’ve loved, or visit magical new worlds. Victory against the coming darkness is never certain, but one thing’s for sure—your adventure will be epic.

New Anthology: WASTELANDS 2 [18 Sep 2012|07:00am]

Originally published at John Joseph Adams. You can comment here or there.

Good news, post-apocalyptic fiction fans: And no, I don’t mean the new TV show, Revolution. Even better: I’m going to be doing a follow up volume to my critically-acclaimed anthology, Wastelands, which will be called, at least for now, Wastelands 2.

As I’ve done with most of my other anthologies, I’d like to solicit recommendations, so if you have any outstanding examples of post-apocalyptic fiction you’d like to point out to me, please feel free to let me know about them by entering them into my post-apocalyptic fiction database.

As I did with my previous sequel anthology, The Living Dead 2, for Wastelands 2, I will likely be focusing on very new material, primarily stories published since Wastelands (Vol. 1) was assembled. The first volume was published in January 2008, but since it was mostly edited the year before, basically I’ll primarily be looking for material published from 2007-Present.

Since this is an anthology, obviously I’m primarily interested in short fiction, but if you want to recommend novels or novel series, that is welcome too, as I may include a “for further reading” list in the anthology. Note, however, that there is an extensive list of novels in Wastelands (Vol. 1), so again this would primarily be of interest for material published 2007-Present.

If you are a writer and would like to recommend your own short fiction, that is quite welcome. If you’d like to send me your story for consideration, please use my online submission system. If you’re submitting your own story for consideration, there is no need to also enter it into the database (but there’s no harm done if you do).

___________

ETA, to answer some questions that have come up:

  1. I’m looking for reprints only. If you have an original, submit it to Lightspeed, so of course I’ll see it there, and if I like it enough to buy for Lightspeed, maybe I’ll want to include it in the anthology too.
  2. It doesn’t matter where the story originally appeared (i.e., I’m not concerned about SFWA-qualifying markets or anything like that).
  3. Although my *focus* is 2007-Present, it’s totally fine to recommend and/or submit a story that was published before 2007. *Some* material from before 2007 will definitely be in the book.
  4. The deadline to submit your recommendations or reprints is January 1, 2013, though the sooner the better.
  5. If you’d like to submit your own story, please do not query. If in doubt whether it is suitable, please just send it in. Feel free to explain anything you need to in your cover letter, and let that serve as your query.
  6. If you’re not sure what qualifies as post-apocalyptic fiction, try reading my introduction to Wastelands (vol. 1) and/or my introduction to my dystopian anthology Brave New Worlds, both of which discuss the subject (the latter primarily in the context of explaining the difference between dystopian fiction and post-apocalyptic fiction).
  7. Payment is 1 cent per word, plus a pro-rata share of the anthology’s earnings.

Brave New Worlds: Revised and Expanded Edition Forthcoming [24 Aug 2012|07:46pm]

Originally published at John Joseph Adams. You can comment here or there.

Night Shade Books announced a new revised and expanded edition of my anthology Brave New Worlds today, which is coming out in December:

SAN FRANCISCO (August 25, 2012) — Night Shade Books are delighted to announce the release of a revised and expanded edition of the critically acclaimed anthology Brave New Worlds, edited by Hugo-nominated editor John Joseph Adams.

An engaging collection of thirty-six of the best dystopian short stories, Brave New Worlds is a shining example of fiction from today’s most visionary writers. To celebrate this rerelease, the new edition not only includes three additional fantastic stories but also an updated recommended reading list and a study guide written by renowned scholar and critic Gary K. Wolfe designed to help book clubs and classrooms discuss the stories in more detail.

Editor John Joseph Adams says, “Dystopian fiction has long been one of my favorite subgenres, and Brave New Worlds has been near and dear to me from the moment I started working on it. So it’s a great pleasure to be able to return to work on it once again, and to have it find new life in the marketplace so new readers can discover it for the first time.”

Editor in Chief Jeremy Lassen commented, “The many anthologies Adams has edited have helped redefine the boundaries of various SF/Fantasy subgenres. Brave New Worlds is an import book, and an important part of this genre conversation.”

With new stories from Ken Liu, Jennifer Pelland and Robert Reed added to an already exemplary list of authors including Neil Gaiman, Kim Stanley Robinson, and Ursula K. Le Guin, this is an anthology not to be missed.

Brave New Worlds is due for release December 4th 2012. For more information about this edition of Brave New Worlds, please visit our website at http://www.nightshadebooks.com/, or contact us at publicity@nightshadebooks.com.

Worldcon Schedule (i.e., Where You Can Find Me at Chicon) [18 Aug 2012|10:33am]

Originally published at John Joseph Adams. You can comment here or there.

August 30 through September 3, I’ll be attending Chicon 7, the 70th World Science Fiction Convention (more commonly known as “Worldcon”). Last year at Worldcon, I got married and lost two Hugos. This year, I’m still married, and again have the opportunity to lose two Hugos.

Here’s my itinerary for the convention:

Reading: John Joseph Adams

Fri Aug 31 1:30pm – Fri Aug 31 3:00pm – Haymarket

John Joseph Adams, Carrie Vaughn, Christie Yant

Readings from the magazines Nightmare and Lightspeed, and anthologies Armored and Epic, all edited by John Joseph Adams.

Filling the Magazines

Fri Aug 31 3:00pm – Fri Aug 31 4:30pm – Crystal A

Ellen Datlow, Gordon Van Gelder, Jason Sizemore, John Joseph Adams, Neil Clarke, Stanley Schmidt

Current and former magazine editors discuss how to be an effective magazine editor, and how the job has been changing as dead-tree magazines give way to web-based electron-based venues. And why can’t an e-zine have as many stories as they want since there isn’t a page count?

Dystopian or Post-Apocalyptic or Both?

Fri Aug 31 6:00pm – Fri Aug 31 7:30pm – Buckingham

Alaya Dawn Johnson, Heather Urbanski, Hugh Howey, John Joseph Adams, Marie Bilodeau

This panel will examine novels like the Hunger Games trilogy that have elements of both dystopian writing and the post-apocalyptic tradition and explore what those distinctions may mean.

Creating Exciting Anthologies

Sat Sep 1 10:30am – Sat Sep 1 12:00pm – Crystal C

Ellen Datlow, Jennifer Brozek, Joan Spicci Saberhagen, John Helfers, John Joseph Adams, Richard Gilliam

We’re in a golden age of science fiction and fantasy anthologies with clever new ideas coming out monthly from major and minor publishers. But where do they come from? How do editors interest publishers and writers in their ideas? How do you make the hard decisions between great stories and great writing (when you can’t have both)?

Hugo Award Ceremony

Sun Sep 2 8:00pm – Sun Sep 2 10:00pm – Grand Ballroom

John Scalzi and other presenters

That thing where they give out the Hugo Awards, duh!

Alpha Writing Workshop & Confluence [20 Jul 2012|03:06pm]

Originally published at John Joseph Adams. You can comment here or there.

Next week, I’m off to Pittsburgh to teach at the Alpha SF/F/H Workshop for Young Writers, and then I’ll be attending Confluence, the Pittsburgh-area science fiction convention next weekend (July 27-29).

Also, on Tuesday, July 24, Kij Johnson, Catherynne M. Valente, Tamora Pierce, and I will be doing a reading at the Greensburg Barnes & Noble at 7PM.

For those of you attending Confluence, here’s my schedule of events during the convention:

Fri 5:00 pm | Oak
Are You a Member Here?

The question is whether we, as a group of readers (bunch of geeks, tribe of SF/F/H fans) and writers have gotten too exclusive–with tropes, words and shorthand universes–and if there is new stuff being written that would be accessible to Joe and Jill Common-Person. Would they have as much fun reading “A Game of Thrones” or “We Can Remember if for You Wholesale” as watching it?

Panelists: Steve Ramey, Lawrence Connolly, John Joseph Adams, Sarah Goslee

Fri 10:00 pm | Consuite
Kaffeeklatsch

An informal group discussion over coffee. Note: You typically must sign up for Kaffeeklatsches in advance, and I believe that is the case at Confluence as well.

Participants: Jonathan Maberry, John Joseph Adams
Sat 10:00 am | Main Lobby
Autographing

Participants: John Joseph Adams, James Daniel Ross

Sat 4:00 pm | Oak
Editors: What Do They Really Want?

Good question–here are a few, what do they have to say?

Participants: John Joseph Adams, Jeff Young, Eric Beebe, Danielle Ackley-McPhail, Sara Goslee

Sat 6:00 pm | Oak
Can’t we Just Get Along?

Stories, books, songs. With so many creative things to do, it’s only natural that sometimes we work together to create something beyond the scope and abilities of just one person. What are the good things and bad things about collaboration? Can compromise actually lead to a better result? Lyrics and music, Editors and writers ,the perils and perks of working together. Whether it be authors with authors, authors with songwriters, songwriters with songwriters, good results will always speak for themselves.

Participants: Jonah Knight, Rand Bellavia, John Joseph Adams, Christopher J Pisano

Sat 9:00 pm | Sycamore
Reading: The Living Dead 2

Short readings from the anthology The Living Dead 2, by several of the authors.

Participants: John Joseph Adams, Gary Braunbeck, Jonathan Maberry, David Barr Kirtley, Jamie Lackey

Nightmare Will Close to Submissions from July 15 to September 15 [04 Jul 2012|12:22pm]

Originally published at John Joseph Adams. You can comment here or there.

Nightmare will be temporarily closed to submissions from July 15 to September 15. This is due to the following factors:

  1. We currently have a high volume of excellent material already in inventory.
  2. I have three anthology deadlines coming up.
  3. I’m in the process of buying and moving into a new house.
  4. I’ll be teaching at the Alpha Writing Workshop in July (and then attending the Confluence convention).
  5. I’ll be attending Worldcon at the end of August.

All those factors combined make it sensible for us to close to submissions for a time so I can focus on other editorial tasks, though of course #1 is the big one. But don’t despair! Take advantage of this time to polish up your stories to the best of your ability and have them ready to go when we re-open in September. Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with on the flip-side.

Other Worlds Than These [18 Jun 2012|12:33am]

Originally published at John Joseph Adams. You can comment here or there.

What if you could not only travel any location in the world, but to any possible world?

We can all imagine such “other worlds”—be they worlds just slightly different than our own or worlds full of magic and wonder—but it is only in fiction that we can travel to them. From The Wizard of Oz to The Dark Tower, from Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass to C. S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia, there is a rich tradition of this kind of fiction, but never before have the best parallel world stories and portal fantasies been collected in a single volume—until now.
