That kind of thing . . . .
WHAT? You mean that publishing schedules are not planned out years -- if not decades -- in advance by the Gods of Publishing? You mean publishing works like any other business, and adapts to take advantage of last-minute changes and conditions?
I'm shocked, I tell you. Shocked.
BTW Greg, you didn't, by any chance, edit Scalzi's Fuzzy Nation
, did you? If not, can you reveal who did? (Just to satisfy my curiosity, I don't have any stalkeresque motives.)
Exactly. No big drama here. Just the usual tinkering with the schedule, especially when you consider that Fall 2012 is still a year away.
To be honest, I don't know who edited Fuzzy Nation
. I'm just a consultant at Tor these days so I don't know the list as thoroughly as I did when I was working there full-time. Sorry.
I'd check the acknowledgements page. Chances are, Scalzi thanks his editor there.
