I have a new short story collection in the works, to be put out by an independent press. It will be a real print-on-paper book; and the publisher promises me it will look really good.

It will be stories based on Icelandic sagas. Eddic poetry, folk tales and folklore. I have written a number of these Icelandic fantasies, mostly in recent years. One was published in Tales of the Unanticipated, a local sf magazine, and another was published in Asimov's. The rest have not been published.

The best of these stories are darn fine. I'm happy this is happening.

I should add that this is not the collection I wrote about a few days ago. That project is due out at Wiscon, if all goes well, and is Big Mama stories.
