Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

James Patrick Kelly has written novels, short stories, essays, reviews, poetry, audioplays, theatrical plays and planetarium shows. His short novel Burn won the Nebula Award in 2007; he has also won two Hugo Awards. His fiction has been translated into eighteen languages.

John Kessel teaches creative writing and American Literature at North Carolina State University in Raleigh. He has been nominated nine times for the Nebula Award and has won twice, for the novelette "Pride and Prometheus" and the novella "Another Orphan," and he has also won the Theodore Sturgeon, Locus, James Tiptree Jr., and Shirley Jackson Awards. Kessel co-edited the anthologies Feeling Very Strange and The Secret History of Science Fiction with James Patrick Kelly. His collection The Baum Plan for Financial Independence and Other Stories was published in 2008.

Review:

"From the cover by Nebula-winning artist Michael Whelan to the very last page, this remarkable anthology is filled with the very best of the SF and fantasy published in 2010. In addition to republishing or excerpting many winners and a few finalists from the 2010 Nebulas, Kelly and Kessel (Kafkaesque) have thoughtfully included selections from a few other speculative fiction awards, such as 'In the Astronaut Asylum' by Kendall Evans and Samantha Henderson, which won the Rhysling Award for long-form poetry, and a snippet of Terry Pratchett's I Shall Wear Midnight, winner of the Andre Norton Award for children's and young adult SF/F. Readers will savor the writing of such well-known authors as Connie Willis (excerpts from Blackout and All Clear) and Kij Johnson ('Ponies') as well as relative newcomers like Amal El-Mohtar ('The Green Book') and Rachel Swirsky ('The Lady Who Plucked Red Flowers Beneath the Queen's Window'); all the inclusions are outstanding works of fiction."
