Gardner Dozois

  • Qu'ils soient dignes de confiance, retors ou avides de pouvoir, les sorciers façonnent la magie à leur image. Parfois dangereux, souvent fascinants, ils intimident toujours les foules. Mais, peu importe leurs pouvoirs, ils ne sont pas sans failles.
    Des magiciens bienveillants aux sorciers les plus machiavéliques, Gardner Dozois a rassemblé dans cette anthologie dix-sept textes des plus talentueux auteurs de la fantasy contemporaine.
    Envoûteurs, chamanes, enchanteurs, devins et invocateurs... Découvrez le quotidien de ces personnages hors du commun qui n'utilisent pas toujours leurs talents à bon escient.

    Avec : K. J. Parker, Robin Hobb, John Crowley, Matthew Hugues, YsabeauS. Wilce, Rachel Pollack, Eleanor Arnason, Tim Powers, Liz Williams, Garth Nix, Elizabeth Bear, Lavie Tidhar, Greg Van Eekhout, George R. R. Martin, Aandy Duncan, Kate Elliott, Scott Lynch.

  • Un jour, ils débarquèrent, comme tout le monde l'avait prévu. Tombés d'un ciel bleu candide par une froide et belle journée de novembre, ils étaient quatre, quatre vaisseaux extraterrestres à la dérive tels les premiers flocons de la neige qui menaçait depuis déjà une semaine. Le jour se levant sur le continent américain, c'est là qu'ils atterrirent : un dans la vallée du Delaware vingt-cinq kilomètres au nord de Philadelphie, un dans l'Ohio, un dans une région désolée du Colorado, et un (pour un motif inconnu) dans un champ de cannes des abords de Caracas, au Venezuela...

    « Ma génération d'écrivains de science-fiction a produit relativement peu d'authentiques maîtres de la forme courte. Gardner Dozois est l'un d'eux. » William Gibson

    /> Né en 1947 dans le Massachusetts, Gardner Dozois est sans doute plus connu outre-Atlantique pour son activité d'éditeur que d'écrivain. Ainsi lui doit-on quantité d'anthologies essentielles (parfois codirigées avec George R.R. Martin, son vieil ami), la série annuelle de référence que sont ses Year's Best SF, sans oublier vingt années passées à la tête de la revue Asimov's Science Fiction (de 1984 à 2004), qui lui valurent la bagatelle de quinze prix Hugo... Il est l'auteur de trois romans, dont deux co-écritures, et d'une soixantaine de nouvelles et romans courts.

  • For decades now Gardner Dozois has been presenting his annual selection of the very best of recently published SF stories, both by undisputed masters of the genre and by outstanding up-and-coming writers. It has been voted Year's Best Anthology by the readers of Locus magazine an unparalleled eighteen times and remains the definitive anthology for both diehard sci-fi fans and newcomers to the genre.

    Without fail, Dozois pinpoints the previous year's most exciting and ambitious science fiction, showcasing truly exceptional contemporary writing. This year's collection is better than ever, comprising 33 fantastic stories by writers of the calibre of Robert Reed, Aliette de Bodard, Alastair Reynolds, Carrie Vaughn, Ian R. MacLeod and Jay Lake.

    The Mammoth Book of Best New SF 27 includes, as ever, Dozois's extensive recommended reading guide and his illuminating and incisive summation of the year in science fiction.

    Praise for previous editions:

    'This annual compilation of the previous year's best short stories and novellas, together with a comprehensive summation of the state of the genre and an extensive "honourable mentions" list, has become an institution over the past three decades.' Guardian 'Quantity as well as quality . . . every piece is a treasure.' The Times 'For more than a quarter century, Gardner Dozois's Mammoth Book of Best New SF has defined the field. It is the most important anthology, not only annually, but overall.' Charles N. Brown, publisher of Locus 'New authors rub shoulders with old hands, and strong work from relative novices Hannu Rajaniemi and Lavie Tidhar suggest that SF's future is as bright as ever.'

  • Fifteen all-new stories by science fictions top talents, collected by bestselling author George R. R. Martin and multiple-award winning editor Gardner Dozois Burroughss A Princess of Mars. Bradburys The Martian Chronicles. Heinleins Red Planet. These and so many more inspired generations of readers with a sense that science fictions greatest wonders did not necessarily lie far in the future or light-years across the galaxy but were to be found right now on a nearby world tantalizingly similar to our own--a red planet that burned like an ember in our night sky . . . and in our imaginations.
    This new anthology of fifteen all-original science fiction stories, edited by George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois, celebrates the Golden Age of Science Fiction, an era filled with tales of interplanetary colonization and derring-do. Before the advent of powerful telescopes and space probes, our solar system could be imagined as teeming with strange life-forms and ancient civilizations--by no means always friendly to the dominant species of Earth. And of all the planets orbiting that G-class star we call the Sun, none was so steeped in an aura of romantic decadence, thrilling mystery, and gung-ho adventure as Mars.
    Join such seminal contributors as Michael Moorcock, Mike Resnick, Joe R. Lansdale, S. M. Stirling, Mary Rosenblum, Ian McDonald, Liz Williams, James S. A. Corey, and others in this brilliant retro anthology that turns its back on the cold, all-but-airless Mars of the Mariner probes and instead embraces an older, more welcoming, more exotic Mars: a planet of ancient canals cutting through red deserts studded with the ruined cities of dying races.
