The Book of Swords | Gardner Dozois
post image

One day in 1963, I stopped in a drugstore on my way home from high school (at that point in time, spinner racks full of mass market paperbacks in drugstores were one of the few places in our town where books were available; there was no actual bookstore), and spotted on the rack an anthology called The Unknown, edited by D.R. Bensen.

From the Introduction by Gardner Dozois

The Best American Poetry 2022 | David Lehman, Matthew Zapruder

Yet another strong collection of poetry. This selection was excellent. This is my last one of these anthologies that I‘ve checked out from the library. The next one I read will be one of the stack of eight that I purchased online. I highly recommend this series if you love poetry. I‘ve discovered so many new to me poets in this series. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!! #poetry

slategreyskies @plemmdog I‘m finding them more inspiring than I thought that I would. They really are excellent, and they make me feel more like I‘m part of a community of poets, which is something I feel like I‘m lacking. I mean, I write poems, but I don‘t have anyone to share them with, so it sometimes feels like writing into a void. 4d

An engaging collection of short stories edited by Joyce Carol Oates. The common thread is the genre of horror known as body horror. Any collection that has work by both Margaret Atwood and Joyce Carol Oates is automatically five stars.

Overall, I‘m giving this 4⭐️
There are some really fantastic stories, in particular my favorites are: Kushtuka, White Hills, Wingless, Quantum & Collections.
There are also a couple that are not great, but most of these stories are solid. I definitely recommend & the book is beautiful!

I‘m posting one book a day from my massive collection. No description, no reason for why I want to read it (some I‘ve had so long I don‘t even remember why!). Feel free to join in!

An anthology of science fiction stories by queer voices and with queer representation.

Anthologies are pretty hit & miss for me, & this one didn‘t really hit. The stories were mostly fine, the narrators were great, but I want sci fi that I‘m still thinking about.

Although I will be searching out E Saxey, because the story Amelioration has me thinking about language & hateful rhetoric. I listened to that story twice before moving on. 🌕🌕🌕🌗🌑

Kenyazero Nice! Anthologies are often hit or miss with me too. It's always fun when you discover an author in them though. 2w
