Best Short Novels: 2007

The Science Fiction Book Club is now accepting pre-orders for Best Short Novels: 2007. The SF Book Club’s cover is by Stephan Martiniere, a piece originally done to accompany Chris Roberson’s The Voyage of Night Shining White, but never used. The book contains eight short novels by Kage Baker, Robert Reed, Chris Roberson, Robert Charles Wilson, Ysabeau Wilce, Michael Swanwick, Cory Doctorow and Jeffrey Ford. It’ll be out in June, and I’m really happy with it. I would say, if you enjoy this series, please consider joining the Book Club and ordering it as the series future has been in doubt.

If you can’t join the Book Club, you could always consider ordering the Prime edition of the book, which will be out in September. It features the Bob Eggleton cover at the right here, which rather suggests Godzilla or one of his cohort might be in the book.

Regardless of which edition better suits you, though, I’ll be delighted if you pick up a copy. I think it’s a good book, and I’d love to have the chance to continue the series in 2008.

  1. As I have in the past, I plan on getting the SFBC editions due to my preferences for hardcovers. Still, delighted to see that Prime picked up the series after the demise of iBooks.



  2. Hi Chris – I’m delighted you’re getting the SFBC editions. I love their cover, and think a lot more people should join up. I certainly would, if I lived in the US. One thing: the series was never with iBooks. It’s a Book Club original series. iBooks very unsuccessfully reprinted one volume, and now Prime are trying with this one. I hope they’re successful. I would be happiest if both publishers had a lot of success with the book.

  3. I’ve been collecting your SFBC Short Novels series and I’m looking forward to the 2007 edition. Your collection is a large part of why I signed up with SFBC, along with the other original editions they do, such as the six-volume A. Bertram Chandler series that collected all his Grimes stories, and the occasional anthology of original stories.

  4. Jonathan,

    My mistake. I knew the series originated with the SFBC and I knew I had seen a version published by iBooks. I just thought they had done more than one book.

    Looking forward to THE NEW SPACE OPERA.
