Science Fiction Saturday
You're probably wondering: how can I easily keep up with what's going on in the science fiction field? Who are the hot new writers? Is it possible to find all of this in one place?
Yes, you can! Look no farther than the annual collection of the year's best science fiction edited by the great Gardner Dozois. This year's edition is the 34th and it's jampacked with fantastic stories by a wide range of excellent authors. And it's all SF--no (ugh) fantasy.
Authors include some of my longtime favorites like Paul McAuley, Alastair Reynolds, Stephen Baxter, Paulo Bacigalupi and Eleanor Arnason, as well as up-and-comers like Lavie Tidhar, Nina Allen, Aliette de Bodard and Rich Larson.
The collection runs to 704 pages in the print edition--that's a lot of SF! And the Kindle edition is only $10.99, which is a great value.
