Abstract:

From Del Rey Books and award-winning editor Ellen Datlow, two of the most respected names in science fiction and fantasy, comes a collection of fifteen all-new short stories, plus a science fiction novella, that could count as a virtual "best of the year" anthology. Here you will find slyly twisted alternate histories, fractured fairy tales, topical science fiction, and edgy urban fantasy. In "Daltharee", World Fantasy Award-winning author Jeffrey Ford spins a chilling tale of a city in a bottle--and the demented genius who put it there. In "Sonny Liston Takes the Fall", John W. Campbell Award-winning author Elizabeth Bear pens a poignant and eerie requiem for the heavyweight forever associated with his controversial loss to Cassius Clay. From hot new writer Margo Lanagan comes "The Goosle", a dark, astonishing take on Hansel and Gretel. In the novella "Prisoners of the Action", Paul MccAuley and Kim Newman take a trip down a rabbit hole that leads to a Guantanamo-like prison whose inmates are not just illegal but extraterrestrial. Many of the writers you'll recognize. Others you may not. But one thing is certain: these stars of today and tomorrow demonstrate that the field of speculative fiction is not only alive and well--it's better than ever.
