No, this is not about the VATMOSS stuff, Juliet McKenna has had some other good news. She has been asked to join the jury for the World Fantasy Awards.
As she explains here, this is a lot of work. Yes, you get tons of free books, but you have to read them. Judging the Tiptree requires one heck of a lot of reading, though nothing too much more than I got through when I was running Emerald City. Judging World Fantasy is much worse because you have many different categories, all of which are judged by the same jury. So it is a huge honor, but also a huge responsibility.
This does not necessarily mean that there won’t be anything happening on the fiction front. After all, River Kingdom came out over a year ago. We might still be able to make something happen in 2018.
