table of contents

Ellen Datlow recently posted the list of stories that will appear in the Year's Best Fantasy & Horror Seventeenth Annual Collection in August. She, of course, selects the horror half of the anthology, while Kelly Link and Gavin Grant choose the fantasy half.

What kills me: being in the same anthology as the writers whose words have both inspired and entertained through the years - Ursula Le Guin, Thomas Ligotti, Stephen King, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Neil Gaiman... Such a rush.
