“Under The Eaves” in Robots: The Recent A.I.

Rich Horton and Sean Wallace’s Robots: The Recent A.I. will feature my story “Under The Eaves”, from the Central Station cycle (of which the first one to be published, The Smell of Orange Groves, was picked up for two Year’s Bests anthologies so far). It appears to be the only original in the collection. I was delighted to see the editors picked up Rochita Loenen-Ruiz’s “Alternate Girl’s Expatriate Life”, from Interzone, which will be the opening story in my forthcoming anthology The Apex Book of World SF 2. Rochita is a wonderful writer, and deserves to be widely reprinted. Let’s hope for more stories from her soon!
