Provoking and inventive, this third annual edition of the Best of Australian Science Fiction and Fantasy includes talented newcomers as well as established professionals at the peak of their form. The contributors are Simon Brown, Deborah Biancotti, Terry Dowling, Margo Lanagan, Geoffrey Maloney, Lee Battersby, Chris Lawson, Alistair Ong, Ben Peek, Kim Westwood and Kaaron Warren.
Comprising more than forty stories and poems from almost as many contributors, the 2007 edition of The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, features the strangest, the funniest, the darkest, the sharpest, and the most original in both genres. The anthology also includes summations of the field by the editors complemented by articles by Edward Bryant, Charles de Lint, and Jeff VanderMeer which highlight the best of the fantastic in media, music, and comics, as well as honourable mentions—notable works that didn’t quite make the cut, but are nonetheless worthy of attention.
The Australian contributors are Kaaron Warren, Lee Battersby, Margo Lanagan and Terry Dowling.
