Sean Wallace has been posting tables of contents for forthcoming Prime anthologies. Naturally I am looking out for Clarkesworld stories.
First up we have Robots: The Recent AI, which follows in the steps of Paula Guran’s anthologies, Vampires: The Recent Undead, and New Cthulhu: The Recent Weird. The book is edited by Rich Horton and Sean Wallace, and the Clarkesworld stories selected are:
- “A Jar of Goodwill” by Tobias S. Buckell
- “Silently and Very Fast” by Catherynne M.Valente
You can see the full ToC here. It looks excellent.
In addition Rich has released the ToC for his 2012 Year’s Best Science Fiction and Fantasy anthology. The Clarkesworld stories are as follows:
- “Ghostweight” by Yoon Ha Lee
- “The Smell of Orange Groves” by Lavie Tidhar
- “The Cartographer Wasps and the Anarchist Bees” by E. Lily Yu
Congratulations all, and I can see I need to re-read “Ghostweight”. The full ToC is here.
I don’t know when the books are due you, but I’ll let you know as soon as I have them in store.
