Beside the Dammed River’s new adventure

CoverA few months ago, I was deeply honoured when Gardner Dozois included Beside the Dammed River in his annual Year’s Best Science Fiction anthology, which will be published in July. I just found out that the table of contents was published some time ago.

Now I’ve finally noticed, I can post it here. It’s truly humbling to find myself sharing pages with people like Paolo Bacigalupi, Lauren Beukes, Alastair Reynolds, Greg Egan and Nancy Kress, whose writing I have enjoyed for years and who inspired me to dip my own toe into the genre.

The anthology will be available from the Amazon UK, US and other national sites. I probably won’t be able to contain myself when it’s published, so there will be another insufferably self-regarding post when it’s published in July.
