TOC Year’s Best SF 26

Gardner Dozois has announced the table of contents for The Year’s Best Science Fiction, twenty sixth annual collection over at the Asimov’s forum. As IO9 observes, there are a very large number of original anthologies represented in the TOC. Are the digests dead? Did they fall or where they pushed? Interzone, Postscripts and Solaris hold up the British end of things, congrats deserved all around there. But a disappointing lack of material from the online ‘zines, with only one story from Clarkesworld, leaving Strange Horizons as the most notable abscence. Perhaps the ‘zines prefence for more literary and / or genre bending stories have put them out of the running.
