Jill at Tachyon just e-mailed me the final table of contents for the collection. For those of you who care about such things, the stories will be:
The Fate of Mice
The Old World (brand-new never-before-published story!)
Going After Bobo
Stormdusk (another brand-new story!)
Sorrel's Heart (the really creepy brand-new story I wrote on muscle relaxants!)
My only disappointment is that Cucumber Gravy won't be included. Gary and I are both very fond of this story, but evidently Jill isn't, and Jacob thinks it's too skiffy because it contains aliens, even though they aren't really the point; the story's character-based SF. I describe it as "C.S. Lewis meets the Coen Brothers in the Nevada desert."
Jacob told me that Tachyon's trying to sell the collection as literary fantasy and doesn't want it to contain space aliens, although there are other SF tropes in there. They know far more about marketing than I do, so I humbly bow to their superior knowledge. Still, it's rather ironic that I've most of my professional career loudly defending SF to all comers (and refusing to apologize for writing it), only to find the editors of a small press that specializes in SF pulling out a story because it's too SF!
Of course, this could just be their tactful way of saying, "We really don't like it."
Anyway, if you want to read it, the link's above. Please note that when you get to the end of the first page, you need to hit the "Page 2" button to get to the rest of the story.
