Default Two New Todd McCaffrey Shorts

I just found out about this, which I see is buried on his blog but in case people haven't seen it.

1. The Worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs - Todd has a story 'To The Nearest Planet' in here which is in the style of the old ERB adventure SF. I read this last night and it is fabulous, maybe Todd's best work to date. He blended with the ERB style perfectly and made a really cool story. Other notables in this antho are Mercedes Lackey, Kevin J. Anderson and Peter David to name a few! If you're a Burroughs fan, you'll likely enjoy this regardless of the contributors. http://www.amazon.com/Worlds-Edgar-B...rice+burroughs

2. Shadows of the New Sun - This is an anthology honoring Gene Wolfe. I haven't picked this one up yet so can't comment on the story but it's out there as well: http://www.amazon.com/Shadows-New-Su...s+of+a+new+sun

There is also a book of short stories, none of them Pern. I think the title is One Tree On Luna" or something like that. I found it at Barns & Nobles. I found all the stories enjoyable.

Not meaning any disrespect but when I saw the thread title my first thought was; "Todd McCaffrey wears shorts? I wonder if they're Bermuda?!"

Hmm, perhaps they're boxers?

I'd be really worried if they were "Hot Pants!"
