It’s really only just beginning to wend it’s way through production, but all the signs are there that Best Short Novels: 2006 is going to be a reality before too long. My editor Andy Wheeler just emailed me the very cool looking cover for the book, which you can see here.
The contents of the book include:
- “Human Readable”, Cory Doctorow
- “Fishin’ With Grandma Matchie”, Steven Erikson
- “The Gist Hunter”, Matthew Hughes
- “Magic For Beginners”, Kelly Link
- “The Policeman’s Daughter”, Wil McCarthy
- “The Little Goddess”, Ian McDonald
- “Audubon In Atlantis”, Harry Turtledove
- “Inside Job”, Connie Willis
- mysterious ninth story
The best way to get a copy of the book, along with the mysterious ninth story, is by joining the SF Book Club. I can honestly say that I wouldn’t hesitate to do so, if I but could.
