Best SF/F of the Year, Volume 2

John Joseph Adams has posted the line-up for The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year, Volume 2, edited by Jonathan Strahan and published by Night Shade Books. While the anthology won't be out til next year, I'd suggest reserving a copy. Among the selections I've read is Ted Chiang's "The Merchant and the Alchemist's Gate," which remains one of my favorite stories from the past year. Stories I haven't read but look forward to seeing include "The Witch's Headstone" by Neil Gaiman and "The Last and Only, or, Mr. Moscowitz Becomes French" by Peter S. Beagle.
