"(Philip Athans) quickly got me up to speed on a complicated property about which I had previously known nothing. The popularity of the end result is at least as much to Phil's credit as my own. Throughout my experience with him, Phil's ability to see the bigger picture, see where my work could fit in, and see how best to improve and promote the brand never faltered."
—Mike Resnick, the all-time leading award winner, living or dead, for short science fiction
