Now, there are two names missing from the list on that cover.
Are there any concrete plans for the stories by Mr Stewart and Mr Boldfort?
Well, do concentrate on those that are there, but in answer to the question, one was a bit long and needs a little more work and one was a bit crap and needs much more. Be confident that both will appear in due course but please don't let their absence detract from what is an exceptional collection of stories.
Don't get touchy, Jim! It looks like we've at least one fan, that's something...
About the question: I don't know about Jim's story, but about mine, Jim and I agreed that it was maybe a bit too long for the short-story format (more of a novella
in fact), and as the schedule was rather tight, it was better to consider it separately, to avoid delays. Besides, it will give me some more time to come up with a better title, maybe (this one is not the strong sleeve of the story). You should hear about it soon! Thanks for your interest.
