Gardner Dozois’ Year’s Best Science Fiction anthologies coming as e-books

http://io9.com/5934805/all-29-editio...ing-as-e+books

So very happy about this! These anthologies (29 of them!) would provide me with a couple years of commute-friendly (or commode-friendly ) reading.

EDIT: No word on pricing yet as far as I can tell with my brief searches.

They're originally published by St. Martin's Press (parent company is Macmillan) so I expect them to be priced above $5.99.

The Twenth-Ninth is actually available on the US iTunes store at $9.99: http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/year...on/id494939841

Personally I prefer Rich Horton and Jonathan Strahan's anthologies.

I presume you are talking about the old ones. I've purchased the last several as ebooks already. In fact I pre-ordered the most recent 29th and it was delivered a few weeks ago.

It would definitely be nice to have the entire series as ebooks!

Some amazing stories in those! (some sh*t too. )

P.S. I also have his "Best of the Best" as ebooks already as well.

I have probably half of them as pbooks, but not the first ones and am missing one here there over the years.

Just did some searching, looks like some are already available:

1st volume: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...?tag=sfsi0c-20


http://www.sfsignal.com/archives/201...ardner-dozois/

just bought volume 1 and 2 for $7.99 each at Amazon.

looks like it jumps to #15 after 2 though...so missing 3-14 ..

There is a listing of the contents of each volume here:

I just picked up Strahan's first "The Best SF & Fantasy of the Year" as a freebie from Baen. Looks pretty good.

I've read some of those and did not actually find them to be all that wonderful. The term best is incorrectly used.

Not sure--it's this one: http://www.baenebooks.com/p-1040-the...he-year-i.aspx

And it's got a decent pack of authors contributing--Gaiman, Doctorow, Bacigalupi, etc.

That's relatively old; current one is Vol. 6 I think.

That's because taste is relative, so mileage will vary (and why we prefer some editors over others).

Good to know--Baen had four; I'm earning free codes w/ their online game, so I get a free one every week or so. I'll pick up the first four there and work forward.
