Hardcover – Head of Zeus – Nov 2022 – 649 pages
Twenty-nine new short stories representing the state of the art in international science fiction. The second annual instalment to The Best of World SF Volume 1, this collection of twenty-nine stories, including eight original and exclusive additions, represents the state of the art in international science fiction.
Navigating around the globe, The Best of World SF Volume 2 features writers from:
- Czech Republic,
- The Philippines,
- and Zimbabwe.
Each story has been selected by World SF expert and award-winning author Lavie Tidhar. Taking us into space – Mars at first, then the stars – and then back to a strange, transformed Earth via AI, gods, aliens and the undead, the collection traces the ever-changing meaning of the genre from some of the most exciting voices writing today.
This is not a retrospective of what science fiction around the world used to look like. This is a snapshot of what some of it looks like now. And it’s never been more exciting.
