Ann and Jeff VanderMeer have just announced their next big project: The Big Book of Classic Fantasy, to be published by Vintage Books. This book, like their Big Book of Science Fiction, will be a massive undertaking, collecting fiction from roughly 1850 up to WWII.
I’m incredibly excited about the project, but I’m particularly excited for this part of Jeff’s post:
“We’re also very happy to have Dominik Parisien on board as an editorial consultant for this project. Dominik is the co-editor of stellar anthologies such as the current The Starlit Wood.”
Yes, I will be joining them on their adventures in classic fantasy! The VanderMeers have a strong international focus to their books, so you can be sure this is going to be a bold, ambitious project.
