New Jeffrey Ford story

Up at SciFiction is A Man of Light, a new story by Jeffrey Ford. As any of you who read this blog know (and there are few of you left by now), I love Jeff Ford. And he's been busy lately. Here are some other things going on:
A Cosmology of the Wider World, a new novella coming out from PS Publishing in Mid 2005;
The Girl in the Glass: A Novel, a new novel coming out in August. From what Jeff has said it was very influenced by the works of Dashiell Hammett, The Thin Man in particular.;
The Virtual Anthology, a series about stories that would make up Ford's dream anthology. The series was formerly housed at s1ngularity, which is now defunct. It now resides at the much more stable Fantastic Metropolis. Ford has written about works by Kelly Link, Ray Bradbury, Henry James and Akutagawa Ryunosuke;
Giant Land, a new short story coming out in the second issue of the Journal of Pulse Pounding Narratives;
The Annals of Eelin-Ok, a short story in "The Faery Reel," a new anthology from Ellen Datlow and Terry Windling, which is out now;
An introduction to a new edition of John Gardner's Grendel. Gardner took Ford under his wing early in Ford's career.
The man has been busy. Now I'm going to settle in and read "A Man in Light." Enjoy.
UPDATE 5/25/05: A new Ford story, The Scribble Mind, is up at SciFiction. Also, Ford announced at his message board that The Girl in the Glass is not coming out in hardcover, instead its coming out in trade paperback under the Black Alley imprint.
