Head of Zeus
The Best of World SF: 2
The Best of World SF: 2 edited by Lavie Tidhar

Twenty-nine new short stories representing the state of the art in international science fiction.

The future is coming. It knows no bounds, and neither should science fiction.

They say the more things change the more they stay the same. But over the last hundred years, science fiction has changed. Vibrant new generations of writers have sprung up across the globe, proving the old adage false. From Jamaica to Japan, from Bolivia to Bahrain, from Italy to Iraq, they draw on their unique backgrounds and culture, changing the face of the genre one story at a time.

Prepare yourself for a journey through the wildest reaches of the imagination, to visions of Earth as it might be and the far corners of the universe.

In The Best of World SF, award-winning author Lavie Tidhar acts as guide and companion to a world of stories, from never-before-seen originals to award winners, from twenty-six countries and seven languages.

Because the future is coming and it belongs to us all.
