Another great list, Todd. I've just posted mine - a little late, but you know how it is when reality intrudes.

Todd Mason said...

All too well, Yvette. Thanks!

Prashant C. Trikannad said...

As always, thanks for collating the links, Todd. I must tell you that I enjoyed reading your December 6 post about Sheila Kohler and Barry Malzberg, one of several anthologies that you have painstakingly put together for fresh readers of early sf/fantasy and mystery, like me. Fascinating stuff, really.

Todd Mason said...

You're quite welcome, Prashant, and thanks for contributing! But I must admit, thinking of Malzberg (even given his fifty-year career) or Kohler as early contributors to crime and fantastic fiction gives me pause...veterans, Malzberg a past master, but goodness, they are still among the living, still writing...the early folks go back a few centuries, at least, at this point, and some would argue millennia...and that's only the work that survives in one form or another...not to mention Malzberg and Kohler both have contributed to other traditions as well...
