A Cyborg Anthology Edited by a Cyborg

A CYBORG Look how bored he is without anything to read :(

One of the things I look forward to every month is the new issue of Clarkesworld, a fantastic digital magazine that collects new—and, as of the past few months, old—science-fiction and fantasy stories. It also has non-fiction pieces, but the fiction is what generally grabs me—weird and inventive, it's the sort of thoughtful, diverse writing that manages to take advantage of genre (without being predictable) and push genre's boundaries (without being pretentious). Subscriptions are cheap; if you're in any way inclined toward sci-fi or fantasy, I'd recommend checking it out.

Likewise, here's something else that might be worth checking out: Clarkesworld's editor, Neil Clarke, is Kickstartering what he thinks might be a first: an anthology about cyborgs, edited by a cyborg. (Clarke suffered a heart attack last year, and as a result has a defibrillator in his chest. CYBORG!) Clarke has a couple of big-name writers already lined up to contribute—like Elizabeth Bear and Tobias S. Buckell—but if past issues of Clarkesworld are any indication, it'll be the unknown and obscure authors who'll make the anthology unique and cool. Heads up, nerds.
