IGMS in Gardener Dozois’ Year’s Best in SF

From IGMS reader, Jaime Rubin, some kind words from SF Editor-Extraordinaire, Gardener Dozois in his 2010 Year’s Best Science Fiction collection:

The flamboyantly titled Orson Scott Card's InterGalactic Medicine Show, edited by Edmund R. Schubert under the direction of Card himself, had good work by Peter S. Beagle, Mary Robinette Kowal, Ian Creasey, Tim Pratt, Aliette de Bodard, Eugie Foster, Tony Pi, and others, including a number of stories, both reprint and original by Card. Although they publish both SF and fantasy (rarely slipstream) they tend to lean toward fantasy, which tends to be of generally higher quality than their SF.

Six IGMS stories were selected as honorable mentions:

  • “Vanishing” (Peter Beagle, #11)
  • "The Report of a Dubious Creature" (Ian Creasey, #15)
  • "The Urn of Ravalos" (Rebecca Day, #11)
  • "Body Language" (Mary Robinette Kowal, #15)
  • "Aim for the Stars" (Tom Pendergrass, #15)
  • "Tekkai Exhales His Avatar" (Tony Pi, #11)
  • --Scott M. Roberts

    Asst. Editor, IGMS
