One of my bestest friends, Jonathan Schmidt, is in town for the week. Yay! He was Tor's young adult editor for a number of years and started our Starscape line. Spending a long night catching up reminded me of just how much fun it was to work together and launch Starscape. We had a year's worth of titles picked out ahead of time and no one really looking over our shoulders. It was a new market to me, I had a blast exploring different artists and a broader range of styles than we often get away with in the adult market. I also remember being surprised to realize that most of the books were shelved in the YA fiction section, not necessarily SF/F sections - which seemed to be reserved for series. So, perhaps a more fluid sense of what is or isn't an acceptable package for the genre shouldn't be surprising.
