Ticonderoga Publications is over the moon to announce a forthcoming collection of stories by Campbell-Award nominated and International Bright Young Thing Lezli Robyn.

The collection is scheduled for publication in 2012.

Lezli Robyn is an Aussie Lass who has very recently discovered a love for writing fiction. She has sold 9 stories since October 2008 to professional markets in America, such as Asimov’s and Analog; six of them appearing in print before the close of 2009 to qualify for the Campbell Award. She’s also recently made an audio publication sale, an e-print sale, and 11 foreign translation sales to countries such as Italy, Greece, China, Poland, Russia, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Spain and Slovakia.

Her first Campbell Award qualifying publication was the first story she ever wrote, “Idle Roomer” with Mike Resnick, for Clarkesworld magazine. And all of her sales since then have been sold to professional paying markets.

“I think that Lezli Robyn deserves a collection. She has written some great stories, scored some excellent sales — I can’t recall the last time an Aussie sold to both Asimov’s and Analog,” Ticonderoga Editor Russell B. Farr said.

“By 2012 I’m confident she’ll be more than a writer to watch out for, and given all her sales have been offshore it will be great for these gems to be available down under,” he said.

Lezli Robyn is also looking forward to being more accessible in the Antipodes.

“It feels very special to me to make my first collection sale to an Australian publisher. I’ve sold all my new fiction to professional markets in the US, and have also sold to over 10 other countries around the world, but I have never had an Aussie sale,” Lezli Robyn said.

“Chuffed doesn’t describe how I’m feeling!” She added.

While the contents are still being decided, the collection will feature at least one original story.

“Lezli has given me the synopsis of a novelette that should blow many minds,” Russell added.

The yet-to-be-titled collection is scheduled for publication in 2012, in limited edition hardcover and trade editions.
