Worlds Seen in Passing: 10 Years of Tor.com Short Fiction
Ed. by Irene Gallo
Perhaps the world’s leading publisher of science fiction, Tor is also one of the few companies to have gotten online publishing right. Their Tor.com webpage regularly updates with great new fiction and has become an essential site for fans of the genre.
Now, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the website’s launch, we have this anthology of some of the best stories they have published online.
While online content still bears some stigma as being second rate, the stories here, which range from hard SF to fantasy, put the lie to that. Because Tor is able to draw on such a wide and deep pool of writers, not to mention what editor Irene Gallo rightly describes as “a dream team of editorial talent,” this is a collection of some of the best writing from the past decade, including a number of award winners and nominees. High quality and rich variety make this a book for every collector, and continue to make the website a prime destination.

Thanks for the heads up, I haven’t seen this before. Just ordered a copy, the lineup is irresistible, and I already have read some of the stories 🙂
Yes, it’s a pretty good collection of some of the genre’s current bright lights. Interesting as a guide post I think to some of the new directions SF has been heading.
