NEWS: BASFF 2016 Table of Contents Finalized, Submissions Open for 2017 Volume

Guest Editor Karen Joy Fowler and I have now completed work on Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy 2016; our final list of Notable Stories, as well as the final anthology table of contents have been selected (though will remain secret until much closer to our October 2016 publication date).

Since the 2016 volume is now complete, I’m now turning my attention to the 2017 volume, which will collect the best material published during the 2016 calendar year. Editors, writers, and publishers who would like their work considered for next year’s edition, please see our Submissions page for instructions on how to submit material for consideration.

Note to Authors: If your work is appearing in an anthology, if you would like to make sure I am able to consider it, please email the publisher and/or the anthologist to request that they send a copy of the anthology to me. I’m still having to do a lot of hustling to get review copies, and it would be very helpful if authors helped spread the word to their editorial colleagues. (Note also that authors may submit their own stories to me directly; see the Submissions page for details.)
