Editor Jonathan Strahan has posted the (near-final) table of contents to the 2nd volume of his Eclipse anthology:

[9/08 UPDATE: Strahan has posted a revised table of contents, shown below, which removes the Harry Turtledove story “We Haven’t Got There Yet” and adds stories by Margo Lanagan and Ted Chiang.]

  1. “The Hero” by Karl Schroeder
  2. “Turing’s Apples” by Stephen Baxter
  3. “Invisible Empire of Ascending Light” by Ken Scholes
  4. “Michael Laurits is: Drowning” by Paul Cornell
  5. “Night of the Firstlings” by Margo Lanagan
  6. “Elevator” by Nancy Kress
  7. “The Illustrated Biography of Lord Grimm” by Daryl Gregory
  8. “Exhalation” by Ted Chiang
  9. “Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom” by David Moles
  10. “The Rabbi’s Hobby” by Peter S. Beagle
  11. “The Seventh Expression of the Robot General” by Jeffrey Ford
  12. “Skin Deep” by Richard Parks
  13. “Ex Cathedra” by Tony Daniel
  14. “Truth Window: A Tale of the Bedlam Rose” by Terry Dowling
  15. “We Haven’t Got There Yet” by Harry Turtledove
  16. “Fury” by Alastair Reynolds

Looks like a real solid lineup. Bonus: Schroeder’s entry is set in his Virga universe. And what’s that I spy on the Moles story? Is naming his story after one of Cory Doctorow’s books a meta-riff on Doctorow naming his story after sf classics? Heh-heh…
