The nineteenth annual collection of fantasy and horror includes offerings from Jeffrey Ford, China Mieville, Barbara Riden, Goeff Ryman, Delia Sherman and Bruce Sterling.
For nearly two decades, readers have turned to “The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror” to find the most rewarding fantastic short stories. Ellen Datlow, Kelly Link, and Gavin Grant continue this critically acclaimed and award-winning tradition with another stunning collection of stories.
The fiction and poetry here is culled from an exhaustive survey of the field, nearly four dozen works ranging from fairy tales to gothic horror, from magic realism to dark tales in the Grand Guignol style.
Rounding out the volume are the editors’ invaluable overviews of the year in fantasy and horror, and sections on graphic novels, by Charles Vess; on anime and manga, by Joan D. Vinge; on media, by Ed Bryant; and on music, by Charles de Lint. With a long list of Honorable Mentions, this is an indispensable reference as well as the best reading available in fantasy and horror.
