Hi, everyone-- I've been an avid SF/Fantasy fan since the 70s. I used to stay on the cutting edge and always knew the Hugo and Nebula nominees well in advance. Then around 2000, I got too busy with work and fell off the slidewalk. I've recently been catching up, but would appreciate recommendations of what you think is cool. What are the big themes, trends, etc.? I need to do my homework. I've also started a new SF e-publishing venture, Third Flatiron Publishing. If you're a writer, check us out at http://www.thirdflatiron.com/liveSite. We'll be publishing anthologies soon via Smashwords.
