Clarke: Bests <— Anthologies —>

Neil Clarke is the latest of the 21st-century reprint anthologists who produce fat trade paperbacks at a rate of one or two per year, in his case for Night Shade Books. As with Adams and Horton, his story selections are almost all from the current century. His book introductions often discuss his personal experience with the themes at hand. Story introductions are brief and biographical.

Authors most often reprinted: Paul J. McAuley, Ian McDonald, and Robert Reed (4 each); Nancy Kress, Ken Liu, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, and Michael Swanwick (3 each).
