Since its debut in 1996, Starlight has been recognized as the preeminent original anthology of science fiction and fantasy. Its stories have won the Nebula Award, the Sturgeon Award, and the Tiptree Award. Starlight 1 itself won the World Fantasy Award for Best Anthology. The series represents the best new short fiction in fantasy and SF.
Now, with Starlight 3, award-winning editor Patrick Nielsen Hayden offers a new serving of powerful, original stories. Some are playful, some rigorous, or exuberant, or melancholy; some are set in the world of today, and some amidst the farthest stars or in worlds that never were.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
STARLIGHT 1 and 2 were some of the best short story collections assembled in any genre. The probability of 3 holding the bar at the level of its predecessors seemed remote because quality rarely reaches that stratosphere. Yet STARLIGHT 3 accomplishes the impossible and more as readers receive sixteen weird yet extremely creative tales that run the speculative fiction gamut with angels behaving more like Ancient Greek Gods in many of the contributions. All of the stories are quite powerful and no one should be surprised when individual authors and editor Hayden add a trophy or two to their mantelpiece. Two words sum up the absurd greatness of this fabulous collection: Senator Bilbo. Harriet Klausner
