It's not often that you can collect autographs from eleven different authors in one day. Especially when five of those authors are 2012 Nebula nominees, one is an AML Award winner, and one is a NYT Bestselling Author.
But this Friday, May 18, it will be possible in Arlington.
The Awards Weekend Collector's Edition is an anthology composed of work by 11 authors who will be in attendance at the Nebulas. This means that it's possible for enthusiasts to get an 'autographing blackout' by collecting signatures from every author in the anthology. Oh yeah, and the stories are pretty good, too.
The collection includes Katherine Sparrow's creepy and hideously believable tale of slipstream romance; Ferrett Steinmetz's story of generational tension in an alien environment; Mary Robinette Kowal's touching depiction of a girl and her Teddy Bear Spider; an Amazing Conroy story by Lawrence M. Schoen; and other work by D. T. Friedman, Alethea Kontis, Sandra Tayler, David W. Goldman, Anatoly Belilovsky, Larry Hodges, and Nancy Fulda.
