Koontz contribution in upcoming anthology honoring Ray Bradbury
May 9, 2011
Ray Bradbury biographer (and former PW Midwest correspondent) Sam Weller sold his third book about the sci-fi author, Live Forever: An Anthology of All New Stories in Honor of Ray Bradbury. AgentJudith Ehrlich brokered the deal for Weller, selling world English rights to William Morrow’s Jennifer Brehl at auction. Bradbury is writing the introduction to the book, and Weller is co-editing the title with Mort Castle.
Some of you have known I’ve been working with my good friend, uber-writer, seven-time Stoker nominee and all-around great guy, Mort Castle, on a secret Bradbury-related project for about a year and a half. I’ve tweeted hints about this for a few months now. Now that it’s happening and ink is being inked (much praise to our agent Judith Ehrlich and our editor Jennifer Brehl), I’m free to tell you Live Forever! is the project. We’ll have contributions from Neil Gaiman, Audrey Niffenegger, Joe Hill, Alice Hoffman, David Morrell, Dean Koontz, Kelly Link, Tom Monteleone, Lee Martin, Robert R. McCammon, Ramsey Campbell, Dan Chaon, Harlan Ellison and many, many others who wish to tip their auctorial chapeaus to Mr. Bradbury. Hell, there are even stories in this bookish beast from two guys named Castle and Weller.
