The very fine and very meta How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu is poised to become a classic in the Sci-Fi genre. Already Yu is a finalist for the John W. Campbell award this year in addition to How To Live Safely being a finalist for the Locus First Novel award. So a lot of people are wondering what he'll be doing next. According to Publisher's Marketplace he just sold a new short story collection titled Sorry Please Thank You to his publisher Pantheon as well as his next novel titled Trilogy: A Novel. More meta anyone? No other details have been released such as publication time or even a brief synopsis. The title does bring to mind Fantasy immediately albeit an ambitious one. It would be quite interesting to see Yu do for Fantasy what he did for Sci-Fi. Also, for those of you who have been waiting for the paperback of How to Live Safely it will be out June 28th sporting the above cover.
