During all the holiday hullabaloo, we missed Jackie Cassada’s Library Journal December 24 blog entry on the “great presents for the sf/fantasy lover in your family.” The Peter Watts collection Beyond the Rift received a mention and a special highlighted newsworthy entry focused on the final Kage Baker collection In the Company of Thieves.
The untimely death in 2010 of sf/fantasy author Kage Baker left the sf community saddened by the loss of such a talented and creative writer. Now Tachyon Publications has released this month In the Company of Thieves (ISBN 9781616961299. pap. $15.95), which gathers six tales (including one previously uncollected) of the time-travelling members of the Company and their employer, Dr. Zeus, Incorporated. Honoring another sf icon, Jack Vance (1916–2013), Subterranean Books has been releasing his early stories, starting in 2010 with Hard Luck Diggings. The second volume, Dream Castles, was published in 2012, and Magic Highways, the third volume, appeared earlier this year. A fourth volume, Minding the Stars, is due out in March 2014.
