Rich Horton : The Year's Best Science Fiction & Fantasy


science fiction awards database
Kelly/Kessel: Anthologies <— Anthologies —> Strahan: Originals

Rich Horton, a long-time reviewer and a monthly short fiction reviewer for Locus Magazine since 2002, launched companion annuals for science fiction and fantasy with Prime Books in 2006 (for stories published in 2005). After three years the two were combined into single, larger volumes titled The Year's Best Science Fiction & Fantasy.

These large trade paperbacks are similar in heft to Dozois' and Strahan's books. Horton's introductions focus on developments in the field and trends in story themes. Biographical notes on contributors are compiled at the end of each volume, along with extensive recommended reading lists.

Most-reprinted authors: Robert Reed (10), Elizabeth Bear and Yoon Ha Lee (7 each), then C.S.E. Cooney, Theodora Goss, Kelly Link, Genevieve Valentine, and Peter Watts (6 each).
