05/23/2004 Entry: "New Sizemore and Tor's "Women in Fantasy""
From the Susan Sizemore newsletter:
"In other writing news, I'm ecstatic to announce that I'm going to be writing an epic fantasy novel for Tor Books, to be released in their Women in Fantasy line. The book is tentatively titled BLUE DEATH. It is a dark, sensual fantasy that's been in my head for years. I'm looking forward to the challenge of writing BLUE DEATH."
This "Women in Fantasy line" that Sizemore refers to sounded intriguing, so I looked around for more info. From the Tor website, Women in Fantasy seems more like a statement of editorial intent than a new imprint:
"Driven by our commitment to publishing only the most engaging fantasy titles, Tor is proud of its Women in Fantasy Program, which showcases the very finest fiction from today's compelling new female authors. Whether they have been previously published to high acclaim, or are publishing their first novels, Tor's Women in Fantasy authors are some of today's freshest and most imaginative literary voices."
They list as their featured authors Jacqueline Carey, Sara Douglass, Jennifer Fallon, Elizabeth Haydon, Jane Lindskold, and Juliet Marillier.
