Best of British Science Fiction 2019

by G.V. Anderson, Robert Bagnall, Chris Beckett, Susan Boulton, Ian Creasey, Rhiannon Grist, Liam Hogan, Emma Levin, Kate Macdonald, Ken MacLeod, Tim Major, Una McCormack, Dafydd McKimm, Fiona Moore, Mike Morgan, Val Nolan, Leo X. Robertson, Henry Szabranski, David Tallerman, Lavie Tidhar, Andrew Wallace, Ian Whates

Twenty-two stories, selected by editor Donna Scott from disparate places, that represent some of the best SF published anywhere in 2019: stories of heroism, stories of loss, stories of wonder. 

In this volume you will encounter tales in which creatures are cut off from their loved ones; someone is trapped with an abuser; a bird sings; weeds grow where we hope for a garden; we consider what our alternative selves might be doing; we can’t sleep; we wish we could keep things just the way they were; we drink too much… and we look to rockets blasting off into the sky and think that there lies the future; that’s hope.

Best of British Science Fiction 2019 is once again edited by Donna Scott, a recent chair of the BSFA and a distinguished poet, writer, and stand-up comedian. Donna is also a free-lance editor who has worked behind the scenes for a number of major publishers over the course of several years.

“This is one of the best Science Fiction anthologies I have read in a while. They aren’t kidding when they say ‘Best’.” – LibraryThing reviewer 

"If this book is anything to go by then British Science Fiction is in good shape... If you want quality Science Fiction to make you think and ponder and dream then seek it out." - SFCrowsnest

“An excellent collection... These were uniformly astonishing. Funny, unexpected, touching...” – goodreads reviewer
