Editorial Reviews


"Though the tone ranges from grisly horror to wry humor, surrealist SF to rampantly pulpish fantasy, these could almost be the varied productions of a single authorial mind, given decades with the freedom to move wherever it wanted, plus the talent to put those wanderings to good use. Less fancifully, they're evidence of an editor who knows just what he wants."                     --Faren Miller, Locus

"Swenson offers an astonishing range of SF stories filled with things you don't want to encounter (such as tall spirits, out for vengeance) and things you do (such as a poignant and heroic Winnie the Pooh).  Some of these writers are famous, some little known, all worth your time.  Savor each one."      --Nancy Kress, author of After the Fall, Before the Fall, During the Fall

"The Best of Talebones assembles a fine, highly entertaining selection of contemporary short fiction. An endangered breed is given new life!"   --Greg Bear, author of Hull Zero Three

"Editor Patrick Swenson has an eye for excellent writers. He published many current bestselling writers in Talebones, even early in their careers. His choices are all worth reading. The Best of Talebones includes some of the best speculative short fiction published in the last decade. Read it and laugh and cry and be frightened and be awed."  --Brenda Cooper, author of Wings of Creation

"Every once in a while Talebones got one of the top stories of the year, and meanwhile helped to develop some first class writing talents. Not a bad record."       --David Hartwell, editor of The New York Review of Science Fiction
