The cover for the 32nd volume of Gardner Dozois’ annual anthology has been released. Check out Maurizio Manzieri‘s incredible artwork on The Year’s Best Science Fiction: Thirty-Second Annual Collection. I think it’s spectacular. (A larger version appears below.)
Here’s the synopsis for the anthology, due out in July next year from St. Martin’s Griffin:
The multiple Locus Award-winning annual compilation of the year’s best science fiction stories
In the new millennium, what secrets lay beyond the far reaches of the universe? What mysteries belie the truths we once held to be self evident? The world of science fiction has long been a porthole into the realities of tomorrow, blurring the line between life and art. Now, in The Year’s Best Science Fiction: Thirty-Second Annual Collection the very best SF authors explore ideas of a new world. This venerable collection brings together award winning authors and masters of the field such as Robert Reed, Alastair Reynolds, Damien Broderick, Elizabeth Bear, Paul McAuley and John Barnes. And with an extensive recommended reading guide and a summation of the year in science fiction, this annual compilation has become the definitive must-read anthology for all science fiction fans and readers interested in breaking into the genre.
I recently finished the current volume and already I can’t wait for next year’s edition.
