The Very Best of Fantasy and Science Fiction(2009)
Sixtieth Anniversary Anthology
An anthology of stories edited by Gordon Van Gelder
Collecting more than two dozen stories that originally appeared in the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction - the premiere speculative fiction magazine - this extraordinary anthology celebrates 60 years of top-notch genre fiction. Including 'All Summer in a Day,' Ray Bradbury's lasting tale of what happened on one special day; 'Flowers for Algernon' by Daniel Keyes, describing what happened to Charlie Gordon when he was made into a genius; 'Harrison Bergeron,' Kurt Vonnegut's absurdist cautionary tale of mandatory equality; and 'The Electric Ant' by Philip K. Dick, concerning what Garson Poole learned after the accident that hospitalized him. This remarkable collection also features some of the most highly acclaimed, award-winning authors, including Neil Gaiman, Harlan Ellison, Shirley Jackson, Peter S. Beagle, Karen Joy Fowler, Ursula K. Le Guin, Theodore Sturgeon, and Roger Zelazny. Hand-picked by the magazine's current editor, this is an unmatched assemblage of appealing, first-rate fiction.
