The Jeanne Cavelos edited anthology from Ace, The Many Faces of Van Helsing, is apparently out and in stores (and is available, of course, from the usual suspects like Amazon-- http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0441011705). My story "So Far From Us In All Ways" is hidden somewhere in there.

This the one you mentioned to me? Cool, I'll take a look. Maybe the movie will boost it a touch.

Yes, I think this is the one we talked about briefly. It takes place in China, and involves Van Helsing meeting a young Manchurian scholar (and soon to be Doctor) named Fu... or, to put it another way, "Doctor Fu, Manchurian" (so far as I know, nobody at Ace noticed the reference). It's all about Chinese hopping vampires, so what's not to love?

Definitely need to buy a copy of this. Glad to hear that it's out there. Congrats, man!

Sounds cool as hell. It's a shame Stephen Sommers didn't come talk to you first.

Adam-Troy Castro posted some comments on his sff-net newsgroup about some of the stories he's read so far from his contributor's copy. Here's what he had to say about your story (with letter grade at the end), Chris. :-)

'"So Far From Us In All Ways" by Chris Roberson (another writer whose work is so far unfamiliar to me), describes the young Van Helsing's first encounter with the undead, while travelling China in the company of an apparently unassuming young bureaucrat named Dr. Fu. Another Van Helsing as hero tale, evocatively written, and of special interest for positing the origin stories of not one but two classic characters. A.'

Thanks for passing that along, Jim!
