It’s here! It’s here and it’s gorgeous!
Today is the release date for Tachyon’s anthology The New Voices of Fantasy, edited by Peter S. Beagle and Jacob Weisman, with fiction from some of the most exciting authors around. It has been getting a glowing reception, including starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, and Booklist. That mildly thumb-obscured picture above is of my contributor’s copy; this anthology is the only place to read my latest publication, “My Time Among the Bridge Blowers.”
If getting this book for free sounds cool to you, then you should know that, to celebrate the release, Tachyon is partnering with Goodreads to hold another giveaway. It’s running through Aug. 29, and you can enter here. If you think you might want to buy a copy, but would like to know a little more about it first, Tachyon has been aggregating reviews on their Tumblr page. They all seem to agree that the book fully achieved its goal of capturing the vibrant and diverse work that newer writers are contributing to the field, “authors who are ready to expand the definition of what fantasy can be, and what fantasy will be,” as Jacob Weisman writes in his introduction. Beyond the individual stories–all published since 2010, all stellar–this anthology serves to document an exciting time in the literature of the fantastic. As of today, you can hold that excitement in your hand.
