I have some seed coming that unfortunately I'm not going to be able to germinate for a while. What would be the best way to keep the seed viable for later use?

Cold dark, very dry place, like your refrigerator in some sort of container with a dessicant in there with them...like rice for example...

Yup my friend the seeds I be cookin now be store baught from friend livin the big city. He gave them to me and said here are some G13 seeds some northern light seeds and some skunk seeds from store so go try them. So I did and be growin them now the last couple grows and likes what they give me. My moms seeds have always benn good and gave me a 7 out of 10 ratio for females and smoke quite nice, mom did her things right I think but anyways been fillin pouch with her seeds before I came cross store baught stuff. Still have few hundred at least me moms hand me downs and will lean on them years to come no doubt cause they never let me down fireside.

Wow, thanks for all the answers!
Unfortunately I'm having issues getting the seed to my mailbox. I think Herbie may not try to send them again :(
But, if they do and I get them I'll know how to keep them safe for when I'm ready!

Freeze them. hands down (IMO) the best way to ensure the longevity of your seeds.

freezing can damage them, 'especially' if they aren't "totally" dried out.
I've successfully stored seeds for excess of 10 years simply in an airtight container with a desiccant pack or rice, in the crisper drawer of the 'fridge.
