Via David Anthony Durham's blog, I've just learned that the Kirkus Reviews Special Edition on Sci-Fi & Fantasy is out. You can download the whole twelve page document here, which, I'm very proud to say, features Yours Truly quoted in the opening paragraph, and then leads off with a review of my own anthology, Fast Forward 1: Future Fiction from the Cutting Edge. The document is comprised of these combination review/interviews, with the various authors saying a few words about their books mixed in with the reviewers' opinions. In addition to such impressive folk as Kevin J. Anderson, Kage Baker, Jim Butcher, and M John Harrison, our own Justina Robson says a few words about crafting her urban fantasy, Keeping It Real. My favorite quote, on the anything goes nature of her Quantum Gravity universe: "It's good to be very serious, but the really important stuff you just have to let all hang out."
