Year’s Best Fantasy 7

, . . Tachyon, $14.95 (372pp) ISBN 978-1-892391-50-6

The seventh annual fantasy anthology from the renowned husband and wife editing team of Hartwell and Cramer is arguably the strongest and most thematically diverse. Complementing works from genre luminaries like Michael Moorcock, L.E. Modesitt Jr. and Lucius Shepard are notable selections from newer authors, such as Laird Barron’s powerfully atmospheric “Hallucigenia,” a dark fantasy masterwork that blends Lovecraftian horror with particle physics. This volume is essential reading for any fantasy aficionado. (July )
