The Apex Book Of World SF Volume 2 Now Available For Pre-Order - Including My Story "The New Neighbours"

A while ago, I blogged about how pleased I was to have my story "The New Neighbours", first published in my second short story collection Transported, included in The Apex Book Of World SF, Volume 2, edited by Lavie Tidhar.

Things went quiet after a while after that, but I am now delighted to report that The Apex Book Of World SF, Volume 2 is now available for pre-order. Take a look at the cover below, then check out this impressive list of contributors from all over the world. I am really looking forwards to reading this!

Good one, Tim. Great cover, too.

Thanks, Harvey!

If the woman on the cover is Anglican, I'm sure she would sell a lot of jam at any fete she might care to organise.

This book looks really, truly, international Tim. Should be interesting.

Thanks, Penelope. We are all captives of fete.
