Well, it seems I passed the first phase of the test. And well, it seems that a lot of people are applying there (the reception area was crowded, to say the least). At least they have the courtesy to inform us whether we passed or not on the same day.

The Transition of H.P. Lovecraft
(currently reading)

Flights: Extreme Visions of Fantasy (currently reading)

The last one I borrowed from Vin, who just bought it the other day, and told me to plug it in my blog so that Dean would read it, considering it has a Jeffrey Ford short story ("Jupiter's Skull").

But honestly, it looks like a promising anthology. It's edited by Al Sarrantonio, and features a good line-up of writers, some of which I've heard, others I never heard of (which is a good thing since I'm being exposed to new writers).

Vin was even joking that that Neil Gaiman and Orson Scott Card seems to have switched titles, since the latter wrote a short story entitled "Keeper of Lost Dreams", while the former "The Problem of Susan".

And my advice is to get it from A Different Bookstore/Ink and Stone, since they have it along with Powerbooks, but the former is cheaper, unless you have discount from the latter (I have both, so ADB is the way for me).
