Best of British Fantasy 2018

Edited by Jared Shurin

by RJ Barker, Archie Black, Harkiran Dhindsa, Jenni Fagan, Lisa Fransson, Beth Goddard, Liam Hogan, Lizzie Hudson, Matthew Hughes, Rhys Hughes, Helen McClory, Ian McDonald, Paul McQuade, Reggie Oliver, Heather Parry, Ben Reynolds, Adam Roberts, Priya Sharma, Robert Shearman, Steph Swainston, Tade Thompson, James Warner , Aliya Whiteley

Editor Jared Shurin spread his net wide to discover the very best work published by British and British-based authors in 2018, whittling down the nearly 200 stories under consideration to just 21 selected (22 in the hardback edition) and two poems. These stories range from traditional sword and sorcery to contemporary fantasy, written by a mix of established fantasy authors, new voices, and those who are not usually associated with genre fiction. The result is a wonderfully diverse anthology of high quality tales.

[Underground – Archie Black]   In the limited edition hardback only    
"This anthology was both modern and utterly fascinating. Its contents may be adventurous, imaginative and (occasionally) based on ‘traditional’ narratives, but its themes and moods are more innovative, challenging and at times therapeutic than any so-called ‘literary’ fiction I have recently read." - British Fantasy Society 
"An exciting collection of short stories for many different tastes... Sophisticated, brilliantly edited and introduced collection." SF Book Reviews
