NOT ONE OF US STORIES OF ALIENS ON EARTH Edited by Neil Clarke If you find a bit of yourself in these stories, this book is for you.

THE FINAL FRONTIER STORIES OF EXPLORING SPACE, COLONIZING THE UNIVERSE, AND FIRST CONTACT Edited by Neil Clarke For Johnny INTRODUCTION I consider this anthology to be a sister to Galactic Empires, which was published last year. During the preliminary reading for that project, I came across several great stories that werent quite right for the anthology, typically because the empire element was non-existent or too thin. As that list continued to grow, a theme began to develop around them: space ...

Wild Minds by Michael Swanwick Illustration by Shirley Chan I met her at a businesspersons orgy in London. The room was in the back of a pub that was all brass and beveled glass, nostalgia and dark oak. The doorkeeper hesitated when it saw how many times Id attended in the last month. But then I suggested it scroll up my travel schedule, and it saw that I wasnt acting out a sex-addiction script, but properly maintaining my forebrain and hindbrain balances. So it let me in. Inside, the light was ...

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. I dont think thats going to happen anytime soon, if it ever does, but the e-book revolution has been impressive nevertheless, and ...

Long ago, Baikonur had been a bright jewel of human aspiration, a place from which ancient heroes rode tremendous machines beyon d the sky. Now it was a colony of Hell. The sun had set and the city was shrouded in smoke.
