the-best-of-beneath-ceaseless-skies-year-seven-smallI met Scott H. Andrews at Worldcon last month, and congratulated him on his 2016 World Fantasy Award nomination. One of the things we talked about was The Best of Beneath Ceaseless Skies Online Magazine, Year Seven, his upcoming collection of the top fantasy tales from BCS last year, and I’ve been looking forward to it ever since.

I saw Scott’s announcement last week that the book is now available. At just $3.99, it’s a terrific way to introduce yourself to the best adventure fantasy magazine on the market — and if you’re already a fan of Beneath Ceaseless Skies, it’s a fantastic way to help support the magazine. All proceeds go to BCS authors and artists. Here’s the description.

A seer of the dead must find the king’s illegitimate nephew so he can be executed…

A mother escaping with her baby follows a coyote into a strange and dangerous dreamland…

A bride who is not what she seems takes an ancient artifact to betray her colonial husband…

A wing-maker fights her father’s addiction and her own fear to save her family trade…

These and other awe-inspiring stories await in The Best of Beneath Ceaseless Skies Online Magazine, Year Seven, a new anthology of eighteen stories from Beneath Ceaseless Skies, the Hugo Award-finalist online magazine that Locus online credits with “revive(ing)… secondary-world fantasy as a respectable subgenre of short fiction, raising it from the midden of disdain into which it had been cast by most of the rest of the field.”

The Best of BCS, Year Seven features such authors as K.J. Parker, Carrie Vaughn, Yoon Ha Lee, Aliette de Bodard, Richard Parks, and Gemma Files, Rich Larson, and Fran Wilde.

It includes “The Punctuality Machine, Or, A Steampunk Libretto” by Bill Powell, a finalist for the Parsec Awards, and “Grandmother-nai-Leylit’s Cloth of Winds” by Rose Lemberg, a finalist for the Nebula Awards.

Beneath Ceaseless Skies is edited by Scott H. Andrews and published twice a month by Firkin Press. Issues are available completely free online; you can also get a free e-mail or RSS subscription.

  1. Done,

    A full subscription is more than I can read right now, but I really like the idea of supporting folks like this :-)

    Decided to purchase from Weightless Books, and they sent me links (they calls ’em “intangibles” 😉 to Best of Season 7, AND Season 1… two intangibles for the price of one :-)

    Let us know what you think of them.
