Edmund R. Schubert has been instrumental with Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show until recently, when he retired to concentrate on his own writing. All I can say is, About Time!

Don’t get me wrong, the man is an amazing editor. Listening to him at conventions, reading his blog posts on Magical Words, and all the other ways he passes on his mystic skills of editing to the apprentices gathering at his feet, one never doubts he is a master of his craft.

Thing is he is also a master at writing. Editing for OSCIMS took up a lot of his time, so he was limited to short stories. He is one of those when I am bopping through an anthology and a story stops me dead, and I go back to the title page for the short story, I go “oh, of course it’s him”. There are very few who do this to me … even fewer who do it every.single.time.

The man is really, really good.

Grab his collection, This Giant Leap, and see if you agree.
