I’m taking a moment. I’m terrible at taking a moment, but I’m trying. About an hour ago there was a knock at the door. It was a courier with a box, a carton of books. This one contained my contributor’s copies of The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year: Volume 12, which is just out from Solaris Books.Â Â It contains 29 stories, all published in 2017, that I think represent the very best in science fiction and fantasy at the moment.
I edited my first year’s best annual in 1996 and have been doing at least one a year since 2003. I love doing it and I love reading other editors books too. These are often hard times for books so, if there’s any chance at all this might be your jam, then please consider ordering a copy. While I’m working on the next book in the series, volume 13, your support will help make sure there is a volume 14.
My thanks on this book to cover artist Adam Tredowski and my editors Jonathan Oliver and David Moore.
Oh! And this is my 47th anthology and 75th book editing project overall. I’m signed up for a few more. It’s a joy and a privilege to do.
