Today, I'm going to highlight another of the SF&F themed anthologies that Patricia Bray and I have edited. THE MODERN FAE'S GUIDE TO SURVIVING HUMANITY was published by DAW Books and was our second outing with editing. Here's the description and Table of Contents, with a link to the paperback edition on Amazon. It's also available as an ebook and of course you can get it from the Zombies Need Brains online store in paperback.

What if the fae were still here, living among us? Perhaps living in secret, doing their best to pass for human. Or perhaps their existence is acknowledged, but they're still struggling to fit in. How have they survived? Are they outcasts clinging to the edges of society, or do their powers ensure success in the mortal realm?

Here are fourteen fabulous tales--ranging from humor to dark fantasy--that explore how the creatures of the fae realm are fitting into the modern world.

From a mortal who offers to do internet marketing for Oberon...to a woman bent on reclaiming her baby from the Queen of the fae...to a dryad grove menaced by urban expansion...to a Selkie in need of a new home and career...these are original looks at how the world of the imagination can survive and perhaps even thrive in the everyday mortal lands.

“We Will Not Be Undersold” by Seanan McGuire
“Changeling” by Susan Jett
“Water-Called” by Kari Sperring
“The Roots of Aston Quercus” by Juliet E. McKenna

Joshua Palmatier and Patricia Bray ([livejournal.com profile] pbray)are thrilled to announce that their new anthology project THE MODERN FAE’S GUIDE TO SURVIVING HUMANITY was sold to DAW books.

Anthology Description:

The Fae are among us. This anthology will celebrate and explore how the Fae have adapted to the modern world and the increasing hordes of humanity that plague it. What if that tall stranger sitting next to you on the airplane is really one of the Fae? What about the CEO that you never see with the office on the top floor full of trees? And what happens when a faery ring appears in a rooftop garden in central New York City?

The anthology is invitation only, and we've lined up an extremely talented crew of authors who plan to submit. Stories are due March 1st, and best guess is that the anthology will be published in 2012.

And don't forget our first ever endeavor into the realms of editing: After Hours: Tales from the Ur-Bar will be hitting stores March 2011. Preorder your copy today!
