The Accolades Keep Coming

The accolades for The Other Half of the Sky keep coming in!

So far, an unprecedented four stories have been selected for various Best of the Best collections.

Of the 16 original stories in the The Other Half of the Sky, curated by Andreadis and co-editor Kay Holt of Crossed Genres, the three selected for inclusion were “Finders” by Melissa Scott, “Bad Day on Boscobel” by Alexander Jablokov and “The Waiting Stars” by Aliette de Bodard. The three stories constitute 9 percent of The Year’s Best SF 31’s table of contents, an achievement not matched in memory.

A fourth story, C. W. Johnson’s “Exit, Interrupted” was chosen for inclusion in The Year’s Top Ten SF Tales 6.

The anthology appeared on the coveted Locus recommended list.

And one story – Aliette de Bodard’s “The Waiting Stars” – has been nominated for the Nebula, Hugo, and Locus awards!

We’re so pleased and proud to have been able to bring such powerful stories to the world, and we’re excited to see others recognizing the importance (and the entertainment value!) of this anthology.
