The Year’s Best Science Fiction: Twenty-Fifth Annual Collection (Year’s Best Science Fiction) by Gardner Dozois was published earlier this month and I’m quite pleased with how Clarkesworld Magazine is represented in its pages:
One bone to pick there… I have two editors. Sean Wallace deserves as much of the credit as Nick. In fact, most the authors he mentions there are from his stories. Otherwise, I certainly can’t complain. Having it described as “faintly perverse fantasy” is amusing to me.
I’m absolutely thrilled by this… Over half the stories we published in 2007 have received honorable mentions. Congratulations to our authors and editors!
Chewing Up the Innocent by Jay Lake (issue 5)
The Third Bear by Jeff VanderMeer (issue 7)
Qubit Conflicts by Jetse De Vries (issue 8)
The Oracle Spoke by Holly Phillips (issue 9)
I’ll Gnaw Your Bones, the Manticore Said by Cat Rambo (issue 10)
The Beacon by Darja Malcolm-Clarke (issue 11)
A Dance Across Embers by Lisa Mantchev (issue 13)
I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out that all but three of these stories are also available in our print anthology, Realms: The First Year of Clarkesworld Magazine.
