It pains me to make this report. I am used to sharing good news, but I’m faced with some very bad news.
Bill Tucker, who brought the Jester World project to EJP, has abandoned the anthology. Even though he missed multiple deadlines, Charlie and I gave him every opportunity to finish the job, and we forwarded every message sent by authors to him immediately.
We know how long all of you have waited to hear about your stories. As authors ourselves, we know how hard it is to wait. And we also know how hard it is, after waiting, to hear news like this. Please understand that we did everything in our power to save the project, and that we may do a similar project in the future. Please accept our heartfelt apology for the inconvenience.
We continue to respect Bill, and we thank him for all the work he has done in the past, particularly for The Library and its various imprints. He has always impressed us as a professional, funny, and nice man. Our opinion has not changed.
All the best,
Evil Jester Press
