The Best British Fantasy 2014

Synopsis

An astonishing mix of hot newcomers, heavy hitters and superstars in this second edition of The Best British Fantasy.

“More good news come our way from Salt Publishing, it seems that they will not only release a series of year’s best British fantasy, but also starting from next year a series of yearly “Best British Horror” too, edited by Johnny Mains.” —Dark Wolf Fantasy

2014’s selection offers stories written by eight women and six men. All have been published in 2013, either in popular genre magazines such as Interzone, or in anthologies. In subject matter, the stories range from hard SF space travel, through near future Zero Hours social comment, to an alternate retelling of Theseus and the Minotaur and a world where flowers whisper poems.

Praise for Best British Fantasy

“All in all this is a great little collection of short stories by some of the best fantasy writers around, some you will have heard of and some that may be new to you but all of whom have earned their place in this anthology by being good writers. Whether or not it's the 'best' and whether or not every writer is actually 'British' is open to debate, but one thing's for sure, it will make a great addition to anyone's fantasy library.” —Sci-Fi London
