Coming in 2015, A New Annual Anthology Series: THE YEAR’S BEST MILITARY SF AND SPACE OPERA Edited by David Afsharirad

Here’s the cover and synopsis for the upcoming anthology The Year’s Best Military SF and Space Opera edited by David Afsharirad. It looks like the start of a new annual anthology by the description. (Which perhaps reveals its original title…?)

Note: A larger cover appears after the jump.

The Year’s Best Military and Adventure Science Fiction Stories. Book One of a new Series featuring the best stories of the year from the top magazine and online venues with a military and adventure science fiction theme. PLUS: Interactive Reader Voting. The collection will contain one story chosen via on-line voting from readers. The award will be presented at a major science fiction convention in Summer 2015.

With an introduction by best-selling military science fiction author David Drake and selected by editor David Afsharirad from the top short story markets in the field, here are the most thrilling, pulse-pounding, and thought-provoking stories of the past year. Stories of future military men and women, space opera on a grand scale, and edge-of-your-seat adventure tales in the pulp tradition, from giants of the genre to brilliant up-and-comers.

Plus, you be the judge! INTERACTIVE READER VOTING. One story from this collection will be chosen via proctored on-line voting as Year’s Best Military and Adventure Science Fiction Story, with the award to be presented at a major science fiction convention in late August 2015.

  1. I’ll have to give that a try. I’ve enjoyed getting into military sf over the last few years, have long been a fan of space opera, and would be curious to see what this first volume has to offer.
