Holy cow! How often do you get to be betwen the covers with Lois McMaster Bujold, Orson Scott Card, Anne McCaffrey, and Robert Silverberg? Woot!

John Joseph Adams has announced the line-up for his upcoming anthology Federations, and it’s terrific (see below). I’m particularly pleased to note that the lead story is Orson Scott Card’s “Mazer in Prison,” which I’m a big fan of, and that my great friend James Alan Gardner is in the book, too, with a new story.
