Year's Best

Ellen Datlow and Gavin J. Grant & Kelly Link have announced that 'The Year's Best Fantasy & Horror' has folded.

It's not all bad news, Ms. Datlow will be editing an anthology of the year's best horror for Night Shade Books.

Was there a reason given? Eeek, I hope it's not the economy. The new yearly sounds great though.

Rob Brooks said...

Yeah, what a downer. I hope the new antho can hold up to the standards of the old ones.

Jeremy Kelly said...

Oh crikey. I was hoping to receive an honorable mention in that book sometime in the next twenty years.

Aaron Polson said...

Noooooo!

Well, such is life. Onward and forward.

I read about that yesterday. I was saddened but St. Martin's Press must have had their reasons. No matter how stupid they are.

Bobbie, I'm guessing the reason is money. Let's hope no more fall during the year.

Rob, as Ellen Datlow will still be editing, I'm sure it will maintain its high quality. :)

Jeremy - I was aiming for in the next ten years.

Ha! Aaron, that was my reaction at 5:20 this morning. The noooooo part that is.

Jamie - it's such a shame.
