Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The inaugural edition of the newest addition to the storied Best American series

For decades, science fiction and fantasy have been popular among readers, but it is only more recently that they have been accepted as “literature.” The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy series will collect the best that this diverse genre has to offer, from stories in science fiction magazines, such as Clarkesworld, to literary publications, such as The New Yorker. Series editor John Joseph Adams is also the editor of the Hugo Award–winning Lightspeed, one of the premiere science fiction and fantasy magazines today. The Best American series is the gold standard when it comes to anthologies, and this debut is sure to make a big splash. 

  
The inaugural edition of The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy will be guest edited by New York Times best-selling author Joe Hill, author of Heart-Shaped Box, Horns, and NOS4A2, as well as the Eisner–winning comic series Locke & Key.

Synopsis:

A collection of the best American science fiction and fantasy stories published during 2014.

Synopsis:

In the new millennium, what secrets lay beyond the far reaches of the universe? What mysteries belie the truths we once held to be self evident? The world of science fiction has long been a porthole into the realities of tomorrow, blurring the line between life and art.

This venerable collection brings together award winning authors and masters of the field such as Robert Reed, Alastair Reynolds, Damien Broderick, Elizabeth Bear, Paul McAuley and John Barnes. And with an extensive recommended reading guide and a summation of the year in science fiction, this annual compilation has become the definitive must-read anthology for all science fiction fans and readers interested in breaking into the genre.
