We've got the TOCsfor the various Year's Best now. Couldn't see any Interzone in the Strahan or Horton, but the Dozois has 4 IZ stories:

"Chimbwi," Jim Hawkins, IZ 227
"Flying in the Face of God," Nina Allan, IZ 227
"Again and Again and Again," Rachel Swirsky, IZ 226
"The Shipmaker," Aliette de Bodard, IZ 231

Neat choices (obviously not complaining about being picked up, but the Allan was one of my absolute favourites this year).

All good choices, I remember them by title and that's rare for me.

Congrats to all! I've only read the Allan and Swirsky stories thus far, and thought they were very deserving.

Yes, congratulations all round, and not just to the authors. Interzone has been publishing some cracking fiction, and it's great to see the two editors have their work receive this kind of recognition.

I'd just like to agree wholeheartedly with Pete. Without Andy C and Andy H we would be very much the poorer in terms of breadth and depth. For a small-circulation magazine, regarded as non-professional by the self-appointed guardians of the genre across the Atlantic, to get four stories in is a tribute to some exciting editorial bravery.

So mega thanks, editors, and congratulations to Nina, Rachel and Aliette.

Yeah, what Jim said. Thanks to AndyC and AndyH and the rest of the Interzone team for the stellar work. It's a beautiful magazine I always look forward to reading, and I've discovered quite a few authors through it.

Yes, many many congrats to Aliette, Rachel, Jim, and Nina. All of those are great stories and this honor is well deserved.

I have to admit that I've rather given up on buying the 'Best of...' anthologies as I subscribe to Analog, Asimov, F&SF and Interzone, which have often covered more than half of the stories to be found in the anthologies and I've more than run out of space for the books with stories I've not read :-) - just burst a book shelf trying to get too many books on it :-(

Hey John how is your Analog sub doing? Mine seems to have collapsed and they send replacements when asked but the originals just don't appear. The local newsagent inMacc has no problems.

Hi John

I could easily set up an offshore account and you could pay a few quid in for Aliette, Rachel, Nina and me. Alternative royalty scheme.

Looks like e-books are coming from the sales figures, but they need a couple of years to rival the bookshelf, I reckon. It's not the same. I've been reading Banks' "Surface Detail" in bed and I swear my right arm muscles are now twice the size they were before I started!

Ah, thought it was just me - the same's happened to the Amazon sub as well so I've decided to go the Kindle route. Rather interestingly, I am still getting the hardcopy F&SF magazine, which is the only one of the three not to come in a clear wrap...

I'm now using the Android app which has its foibles but at least I get the thing.

I do still prefer the overall experience of hard-copy books I think but e-books have them beaten when it come to reading on public transport, and there's the fact that you can carry a complete series around with you. Baen Book's Free Library is a good place to get started and they do quite a wide range of books.
