Stephen Baxter Iron Winter ONE 1 Once the ice sheets had covered continents. The silence of the world had been profound. At last the ancient ice receded, and life tentatively took back the exposed landscapes. Northland was a neck of land that connected the peninsula the people called Albia to the Continent.

THE YEARS BEST SCIENCE FICTION Twenty-Ninth Annual Collection Edited by Gardner Dozois Summation: 2011 Like last year, the big story in 2011 continues to be the explosion in e-book sales, which have been dramatic enough, and accrued fast enough, to make some commentators speculate that e-books will eventually drive physical print books out of existence altogether.
