Paula Guran has shared the table of contents of The Year’s Best Science Fiction & Fantasy Novellas 2016 with cover art by Julie Dillon.

About the book:

The second volume of Prime Books’ annual anthology series collecting some of the year’s best novella-length science fiction and fantasy. Novellas, longer than short stories but shorter than novels, are a rich rewarding literary form that can fully explore tomorrow’s technology, the far reaches of the future, thought-provoking imaginings, fantastic worlds, and entertaining concepts with all the impact of a short story as well as the detailed depth of a novel.
