In the spirit of classic science fiction anthologies such as Universe, Orbit, and Starlight, master anthologist Jonathan Strahan (The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year) presents the non-themed genre anthology Eclipse: New Science Fiction and Fantasy. Here you will find stories where strange and wonderful things happen--where reality is eclipsed by something magical and new.
Continuing in the footsteps of the multiple-award-nominated anthologies Eclipse One and Eclipse Two, Eclipse Three delivers new fiction by some of the genre's most celebrated authors, including Karen Joy Fowler's story of a family's desperation and a rebellious young woman's strange incarceration; Ellen Klages's fable of a practical girl, an unusual tortoise, and an ancient mathematical puzzle; Pat Cadigan's story of a mysterious photograph and two friends' journey through space and time in order to solve its riddle; Jeffrey Ford's tale of a legendary sword imbued with the power to turn flesh to coral, and of the artist that wields it; Daniel Abraham's story of divine providence, sacred oaths, and the omens that indicate whether a man is fit to be king; and Caitlin R. Kiernan's chronicle of an astronaut whose memories of a lover lost to an alien intelligence haunt her.

I Also Recommend:
One of the things I do when I read an anthology is write (in pencil, of course!) a one- to four-star rating beside the title of the story in the table of contents, and the word BEST next to what I thought was the best story in the book. In ECLIPSE THREE, the best story was SLEIGHT OF HAND, by Peter S. Beagle, which nosed out Caitlin Kiernan's GALAPAGOS by the thinnest of margins. Great, great stuff all around. There's a lot of other good stories in all of the Eclipse volumes, and I can recommend them all without reservation. Jonathan Strahan also edits a BEST SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY OF THE YEAR volume, which is also very well worth your time.
