NEWS: Revised and Expanded Edition of BRAVE NEW WORLDS Announced

Night Shade Books recently announced a new revised and expanded edition of Brave New Worlds, which is coming out in December:

SAN FRANCISCO (August 25, 2012) — Night Shade Books are delighted to announce the release of a revised and expanded edition of the critically acclaimed anthology Brave New Worlds, edited by Hugo-nominated editor John Joseph Adams.

An engaging collection of thirty-six of the best dystopian short stories, Brave New Worlds is a shining example of fiction from today’s most visionary writers. To celebrate this rerelease, the new edition not only includes three additional fantastic stories but also an updated recommended reading list and a study guide written by renowned scholar and critic Gary K. Wolfe designed to help book clubs and classrooms discuss the stories in more detail.

Editor John Joseph Adams says, “Dystopian fiction has long been one of my favorite subgenres, and Brave New Worlds has been near and dear to me from the moment I started working on it. So it’s a great pleasure to be able to return to work on it once again, and to have it find new life in the marketplace so new readers can discover it for the first time.”

Editor in Chief Jeremy Lassen commented, “The many anthologies Adams has edited have helped redefine the boundaries of various SF/Fantasy subgenres. Brave New Worlds is an import book, and an important part of this genre conversation.”

With new stories from Ken Liu (“The Perfect Match”), Jennifer Pelland (“Personal Jesus”) and Robert Reed (“The Cull”) added to an already exemplary list of authors including Neil Gaiman, Kim Stanley Robinson, and Ursula K. Le Guin, this is an anthology not to be missed.

Brave New Worlds is due for release December 4th 2012. For more information about this edition of Brave New Worlds, please visit website at
