Overview

A monumental collection of fiction and nonfiction by the award-winning writer and editor, Gardner Dozois, including perhaps the only World Science Fiction trip report you’ll ever find that is a lyrical and evocative piece bit of journalism in itself!

These are Dozois short stories selected and introduced by writers, many of them legends themselves, who are friends and colleagues of Dozois. A sparkling collection of short fiction that contains some of the two-time Nebula winner’s best work, including many topflight Dozois collaborations!

From the introduction:
Imagine you’re at a party in Gardner’s apartment. It’s not large, but he’s invited swarms of people, so it’s very crowded. Gardner keeps his awards on a little table not far from the door. People who have never been there before, young editors and the like, will eventually drift over to admire the thicket of Hugos for his work as an editor, and while there notice two Nebulas gleaming in their midst. Inevitably, someone will say, “I didn’t know Gardner was a writer.”
“Oh, yes,” one of us Old Hands will reply (we linger near the trophy table for this very purpose), “Gardner’s a much better writer than he is an editor!”

Selection and introduction of Dozois-written stories by: Stephen Baxter, Michael Bishop, Pat Cadigan, Susan Casper, Jack Dann, Andy Duncan, Eliot Fintushel, Joe Haldeman, James Patrick Kelly, John Kessel, Nancy Kress, George R.R. Martin, Paul McAuley, Ian McCloud, Mike Resnick, Kim Stanley Robinson, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Robert Silverberg, Michael Swanwick, Walter Jon Williams, Connie Willis, and Jane Yolen.

“Lyric, haunting, heartbreaking—this is science fiction at its best.”—George R.R. Martin
