The Best of British SF

The Best of British Science Fiction 2016 is out now from NewCon Press. Donna Scott has selected the very best short fiction by British authors published in magazines, anthologies, and online during 2016. Twenty-four stories, from established names (including Ian Watson, Peter F. Hamilton and Adam Roberts) and new voices. The volume includes my collaboration with Keith Brooke, “Beyond the Heliopause”. It’s a welcome development that Britain now has its own ‘Best Of…’ anthology – long may it continue.
