The anthology (and accompanying website) is aimed at a Worldcon 2010 launch.

    Is this a TPP project?
    I’m very excited about it! Been reading children’s books for review and having a lot of fun (Kate Forsyth FTW!) 🙂

    Pass It On
    Hi Tehani,
    Would you like me to send this to Jackie Hosking for Pass It On (the children’s writing newsletter)? Or have you already done that?
    Best wishes,
