The Best Science Fiction of the Year: Volume Six by Neil Clarke  (Editor)

Keeping up-to-date with the most buzzworthy and cutting-edge science fiction requires sifting through countless magazines, e-zines, websites, blogs, original anthologies, single-author collections, and more—a task that can be accomplished by only the most determined and voracious readers. For everyone else, Night Shade Books is proud to present the latest volume of The Best Science Fiction of the Year, a yearly anthology compiled by Hugo and World Fantasy Award–winning editor Neil Clarke, collecting the finest that the genre has to offer, from the biggest names in the field to the most exciting new writers.

From the book blurb

I haven‘t made many reading plans for next year and I want to keep it that way. Mood reading, working on my real shelf with paperbooks, cleaning up that NetGalley shelf… Maybe I‘ll join a challenge spontaneously, right now I want to really keep my reading calendar open.

One of the buddy reads I committed to so far is this anthology. It comes out at the end of January in my corner of the woods. We will probably read one story per week, so it will take a while to get through it. I wouldn‘t mind reading more short stories again next year anyway. There are a few other short story collections that have been lingering on my shelf…

What are your plans? Do you read short stories and what are your preferred magazines and websites for it?
