Nalo Hopkinson new fantasy editor for Red Deer Press

It was announced in the subscribers' only Quill & Quire Online today that Nalo Hopkinson -- World Fantasy Award winner and fellow Toronto writer -- has joined the Red Deer Press team as the editor of her own fantasy imprint, a companion for my Robert J. Sawyer Books imprint. Nalo will be doing three books a year for Red Deer Press.

This has been in the works for months now, and I take justifiable pride in it happening, I think, as I'm the one who recommended and introduced Nalo to Sharon Fitzhenry, the publisher of Fitzhenry & Whiteside, Red Deer's parent company. Welcome aboard, Nalo!

Thanks, Rob! And yes, I definitely have you to thank!

One thing I want to make clear, though; it's a -reprint- imprint with 50% Canadian content; no new novels.

We did one (revised) reprint under my Robert J. Sawyer Books imprint: Terence M. Green's brilliant Children of the Rainbow, originally published by McClelland & Stewart, was revised for my line as Sailing Time's Ocean.

I've got to say, though, that it has been a total, total thrill working on new novels with new authors. :)
