About the Megapacks
Over the previous couple of years, our “Megapack” sequence of e-book anthologies has proved to be certainly one of our preferred endeavors. (Maybe it is helping that we occasionally supply them as charges to our mailing list!) One query we preserve getting requested is, “Who’s the editor?”
The Megapacks (except the place in particular credited) are a gaggle attempt. everybody at Wildside works on them. This comprises John Betancourt, Mary Wickizer Burgess, Sam Cooper, Carla Coupe, Steve Coupe, Bonner Menking, Colin Azariah-Kribbs, Robert Reginald. A. E. Warren, and lots of of Wildside’s authors… who usually recommend tales to incorporate (and not only their own!)
