Mad Scientists and Wizards Exist?

I was all excited about these two deals. Quite excited, in fact. And I e-mailed them off yesterday, so that there wouldn't be ANY confusion about the wording, like in the past, and so that they would be posted EXACTLY as I had written.

But the idiots over at Publisher's Marketplace (and I do indeed think they are idiots, in this matter), have somehow decided that neither anthology is FICTION, but is instead, NON-FICTION. Because you know, mad scientists, evil geniuses, and WIZARDS exist in the real world.

I have e-mailed them to see if they will correct it, and not look like idiots anymore.

Non-fiction:

Non-fiction:
Anthology

John Joseph Adams's THE MAD SCIENTIST'S GUIDE TO WORLD DOMINATION, an all-original anthology featuring superhero stories narrated by mad scientists and evil geniuses, including new work from several NYT bestselling authors, to James Frenkel at Tor, in a nice deal, by Jenny Rappaport of The Rappaport Agency on behalf of the L. Perkins Agency (World English).


THE MAD SCIENTIST'S GUIDE TO WORLD DOMINATION, by the way, was Book A from the blog post of a few weeks ago. John was so wonderfully patient about the fact that it took fifteen months that somewhere along the way I promised I'd make him a mad scientists cake. We will be researching options and pictures will eventually be posted here... =)

Amazing. The "non-fiction" part, I mean.

There was a photo going around that had a shelf of Stephenie Meyer books, under the header of "non-fiction". So sparkly vampires exist too!

*facepalm*

Wow - I didn't know agents worked with anthologies. Seriously. I didn't have a clue. Thought they were bought & sold beforehand to a publisher before even an editor was assigned.
