We’re living in a new ‘golden age’ of short science fiction. Fear not: there’s a new Twitter feed, curated by some of the genre’s top editors, recommending the best new SF: SFEditor Picks.
The editors behind the account are Ellen Datlow, Gardner Dozois, Paula Guran, Rich Horton, Steve Berman, Neil Clarke, Liz Grzyb, Michael Kelly, Alisa Krasnostein and Jonathan Strahan, some of the best editors currently curating short fiction in the genre right now.
Strahan tells io9, “The idea behind the service is simple. I’ve reached out to any editor who currently edits a ‘year’s best’ annual and invited them to provide recommendations on new stories to readers. More editors will be added soon.” He adds that they’re recommending science fiction, fantasy and horror stories.
There’s no summaries, explanations or reviews here: just the name of the story, the author and where you can find it. (As well as the editor making the recommendation.) This looks like it’ll be an indispensable resource for hearing about the best short stories being published now.
UPDATE: If you’re not on Twitter, you can also follow along on Facebook.
UPDATE #2: Added the full list of editors, plus a quote from Strahan.
