An Anthology Celebration

A celebration? For anthologies? you say. Come on, even anthologies need a little love and support!

Anthologies are an odd thing in the publishing world. They aren't like a book, they aren't like a magazine.

New authors strive to be included in them, popular authors are begged to submit work for them, crazy people choose to edit them. Sales figures show that few copies of these odd collections are sold. Readers claim that they don't like/buy them.

So why do they keep coming out?

Maybe some of the posts we will feature coming up will help us think on this.
