Those with long memories will remember ten years ago when I, Bob Garcia and Kaja Foglio put together an omnibus of Barry Hughart's three marvelous novels Bridge of Birds, The Story of the Stone and Eight Skilled Gentlemen. Back then only Bridge of Birds was still in print, and the project served the double purpose of bringing the other two back into print and celebrating the Tenth Anniversary of my science fiction bookstore, The Stars Our Destination.
The book came out beautifully and remains one of the projects I am most proud of.
Today Subterranean Press has announced that they will be doing a new omnibus of the three novels, probably limited to 2000 copies. Subterranean Press does some of the finest work in the industry, and I'm just delighted that they've taken on this project.
