All Sleek and Skimming

I can now tell you that my partner, Lisa, has found a home for the anthology she's been working on for a few years now, which is tentatively entitled All Sleek and Skimming.* That home is Orca books. The anthology will combine stories written expressly for the young adult market and stories written with adults in mind but with teen appeal. Lisa hopes to encourage people and institutions to associate young adult literature with adult lit. rather than with children's. Makes sense, I think. But I'm biased.

Authors will include Sheila Heti, Derek McCormack, Lee Henderson, Gary Barwin, Tim Wynne-Jones, and Arthur Slade.

* The title is from a story by Susannah M. Smith.
