Short fiction is the laboratory in which SF invents itself. From the earliest days of the American pulps to the mature magazines of today, short SF has been the form in which the genre's greatest writers have kept the field in entertaining ferment. Starlight 1 brings readers major new works from a dozen of the field's strongest voices, including Michael Swanwick, Susan Palwick, Maureen F. McHugh, and John M. Ford.

Patrick Nielsen Hayden selected the stories for this World Fantasy award-winning anthology using only the evocation of a "sense of wonder" as a criterion for inclusion. These intriguing works represent a very broad range of speculation, from fantasy to science fiction to magical realism. Standouts include 1997 John W. Campbell Award nominee Andy Duncan's "Liza and the Crazy Water Man," Michael Swanwick's "The Dead," and John M. Ford's "Erase/Record/Play." Unclassifiable, high quality fiction--an auspicious beginning for a new anthology series.About the Author:
