No more Year's Best Fantasy and Horror

Horrible news: there will not be a new edition of the wonderful Year's Best Fantasy and Horror anthology. According to this post from editors Gavin J. Grant and Kelly Link, it sounds like the publisher pulled the plug on the series. Ellen Datlow confirms the sad news, while adding that she's been "offered a two book deal with Night Shade to edit a Best of the Year inHorror anthology (not titled yet)--for this year and next..." While that doesn't replace the loss of a wonderful anthology, I'm glad Datlow will be able to continue her anthology work.
