two anthologies I'm in

There are two anthologies I'm going to be in later this year, one a fiction anthology, one a collection of essays. The former is More Tales of Zorro, edited by Richard Dean Starr, the second of Moonstone Books's anthologies of short stories featuring the Fox. The latter is Assembled! 2, edited by Van Allen Plexico, the second of White Rocket Books's essay collections about Earth's Mightiest Heroes (I provided the introduction to Assembled!, released in 2007).

Avengers Assemble--in the Bookstore! (Keith R.A. DeCandido)

My Zorro story actually focuses on Zorro's nemesis, Captain Monastario, and is entitled "Letter from Guadalajara." My contribution to Assembled! 2 is an overview of Marvel Comics novels.

Both books should be out in the fall. Don't worry, I'll let y'all know the microsecond they're available. *grin*
