Gardner Dozois and George R.R. Martin are putting together Old Venus, another of their wonderful themed anthologies, this one collecting stories set in the swampy, rainy Venus that used to exist in science fiction, before real scientists sent probes that proved what a dry, searing, poisonous hellhole it really is. Having written them a Bradbury pastiche on short notice when somebody pulled out of the Old Mars antho, I dared myself to try writing a Jeeves and Bertie story involving a 1920s-vintage rocket trip to Venus. To avoid copyright complications with the P.G. Wodehouse estate, I’ve changed the characters’ names, so the story is entitled “Greeves and the Evening Star.” Gardner and George have just bought it — “with enthusiasm,” as they so kindly put it. Old Mars should be out next year, and Old Venus in 2014.
