Locus Recommended Reading List & Year’s Bests

Here we are, February already. It’s been a rough 2017 for pretty much everyone I know, so we’re due for some good news. The folks at Locus Magazine have compiled their annual recommended reading list,  and it includes a ton of work I’ve enjoyed throughout the year, along with additional material I need to read. Big congratulations to everyone on the list.

Starlit Wood (1)

Navah and I are pretty thrilled that THE STARLIT WOOD: NEW FAIRY TALES made the list, along with three stories and two novelettes:

  • Amal El-Mohtar’s “Seasons of Glass and Iron
  • Daryl Gregory’s “Even the Crumbs Were Delicious”
  • Sofia Samatar’s “The Tale of Mahliya and Mauhub and the White-Footed Gazelle”, Sofia Samatar”
  • Aliette de Bodard’s “Pearl”
  • Naomi Novik’s “Spinning Silver”

Year’s Bests

Starlit stories have also been doing well with Year’s Best anthologies, totalling six reprints so far. These are:

  • “Seasons of Glass and Iron” in Paula Guran’s The Year’s Best Dark Fantasy and Horror and Jonathan Strahan’s The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year
  • “Spinning Silver” in Paula Guran’s The Year’s Best Dark Fantasy and Horror and Jonathan Strahan’s The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year
  • “Even the Crumbs Were Delicious” in Jonathan Strahan’s The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year
  • “Pearl” in Neil Clarke’s The Best Science Fiction of the Year

That’s it for the good news for now. Who knows, maybe the future holds more reprint opportunities for Starlit stories. That would certainly be nice.
