Zen and the Art of Starship Maintenance to be in THREE different Year’s Best Collections and Year’s Top Ten Tales

My short story ‘Zen and the Art of Starship Maintenance’ has caught me off guard with just how much people seem to be singling it out. As of right now, I have signed four contracts for the story to appear in Year’s Best collections.

I am beyond amazed and incredibly grateful for the honor. Here are all the reprint requests I have signed contracts for:

– – The Best Science Fiction & Fantasy of the Year Volume 12 (Apr. 2018)
– – The Year’s Best Science Fiction #35 (Jul. 2018)
– – The Best Science Fiction of the Year Volume 3 (Apr. 2018)
– – The Year’s Top Ten Tales of Science Fiction 10 (Jun. 2018)

But that’s not all! On February 1st, Zen and the Art of Starship Maintenance will be going live online, reprinted somewhere for all to read. I can’t wait, as I love this story deeply and look forward to more people reading it.

Here are all the covers (clickable links to buy the collections if interested), tables of contents, and editors:
