A Booklist Top 10 Science Fiction/Fantasy title July-Aug 2017 Selected for the io9 August Reading List AGeekiverse 8 Hot Sci-fi and Fantasy Releases A Bookish Hot New Release [STARRED REVIEW] "A companion piece of sorts to Beagle's critically acclaimed anthology, The Secret History of Fantasy (2010)-a collection of stories that transcended the conventions and cliches of contemporary fantasy-Beagle and Weisman's latest contains 19 comparable stories from some of the genre's most innovative and exciting new voices.Although most of the authors included here may not be household names like the ones in the earlier collection (which featured works from Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, and Octavia E. Butler, among others), the quality of the stories is undeniable. Also undeniable is the impressive diversity of storylines, which range from the whimsy of Ben Loory's "The Duck," about a bird who falls hopelessly in love with a rock, to the horror of Carmen Maria Machado's Nebula Award-nominated "The Husband Stitch," a darkly lyrical and deeply disturbing look at a woman with a penchant for storytelling whose life becomes a twisted tale. E. Lily Yu's "The Cartographer Wasps and the Anarchist Bees" is particularly memorable. A political fable that works on multiple levels, it chronicles a conflict between a nest of imperialistic wasps and a colony of peaceful bees. A few young bees begin questioning the violent new world order and plot rebellion. Other standout selections include "Tornado's Siren" by Brooke Bolander, a love story featuring a tornado and a girl, and Alyssa Wong's Nebula and World Fantasy Award-winning "Hungry Daughters and Starving Mothers," which puts an innovative twist on the vampire mythos with a story about a young woman who, after realizing she can find sustenance consuming people's thoughts, becomes addicted to eating the darkest. While all 19 pieces are exceptional, the anthology's title is a bit of a misnomer; some stories were originally published as far back as 2012. A stellar anthology that proves not only that fantasy is alive and well, but that it will be for years to come." -Kirkus [STARRED REVIEW] "This excellent anthology showcases up-and-coming speculative fiction writers, many of whom have received award nominations and critical attention to support their status as future influencers of the genre. The anthology opens with Alyssa Wong's Nebula-winning "Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers," a gripping story of creatures who walk among humans and feed on ugliness. The stories vary in tone: Amal El-Mohtar's "Wing" is lyrical, A.C. Wise's "The Practical Witch's Guide to Acquiring Real Estate" is gently humorous, and Carmen Maria Machado's "The Husband Stitch" is haunting. Some, such as E. Lily Yu's beautiful "The Cartographer Wasps and the Anarchist Bees," eschew the well-worn Western setting that is the English-language-fantasy default; others, such as Brooke Bolander's "Tornado's Siren," thoughtfully embrace their American and European settings. Fantasy legend Beagle and Tachyon publisher Weisman have provided a valuable snapshot of SF/F's newest generation of writers." -Publishers Weekly [STARRED REVIEW] "This anthology represents some of the most exciting and interesting work in the fantasy field today, and anyone interested in the genre should read it immediately." -Booklist "For readers who are anticipating the end of HBO's Game of Thrones and looking for new fantasy authors to follow, this 19-story-strong collection provides plenty to sample." -Library Journal "Delightful and discomforting, indelible and self-assured, the stories of [The] New Voices of Fantasy take our familiar old world and imagine it anew. In amongst the dancing buildings, lovelorn tornadoes, and domesticated vampires, we find our deepest truths dressed in fresh and unexp
