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.
Thanks for the response!

Patrick Nielsen Hayden is my guess, based on the acknowledgements. I don't recognize any of the other names there (except Wil Wheaton, who I see read the audiobook. That might be worth checking out.)
