A gorgeous collection right here! Now where do I go to find out what you published in the actual volume...?

We're not quite ready to release the whole table of contents yet, because we're waiting to make sure all the contracts come in, all the i's are crossed and all the t's dotted, etc. We hope to be able to release it by the end of March. (A few authors and publishers have begun to announce our selection of their stories in cases where we're all set, though.)
