SF Writer Jason Sanford: Special Interzone Issue and His Best-Of Picks for 2010
Few SF/fantasy writers generate a buzz through short fiction alone, but Jason Sanford is an exception. Over the past few years, he's created a growing fan base through his brand of modern speculative fiction, something he called "SF Strange." published in Analog Science Fiction and Fact, Year's Best SF 14, and other magazines and anthologies. He also founded the literary magazine storySouth and runs their annual Million Writers Award for best online short stories.
One of the most prominent vehicles for his fiction, however, has been the UK magazine Interzone. In fact, Interzone, published by TTA Press, recently released a special "Jason Sanford issue"--available via subscription in e-formats through Amazon. It includes three new stories and an interview with Sanford. This is a great way to sample Sanford's work and to check out Interzone, a magazine well worth your attention.
In addition, Sanford just posted his list of recommendations for SF/F awards. It includes a list of novels published in 2010 that may be of interest to Amazon readers (several appeared on the Amazon top 10 SF/F books list):
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin
Who Fears Death by Nnedi Okorafor
Dreadnought by Cherie Priest
How To Live Safely In A Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu
The Habitation of the Blessed by Catherynne M. Valente
