The Best of Elizabeth Bear available for pre-order!

Hey, you! Yes, you!

There are still copies of the limited edition The Best of Elizabeth Bear mega-anthology available. The reviews are coming in, and they’re fabulous. 


From Publishers Weekly:

“Though many of these offer glimpses into vast, intricate worlds, all are grounded in deep human feeling and small, interpersonal dramas… Bear’s protagonists range from machines (the living spaceships of ‘Boojum’) to the human (the tired homicide cop in ‘Dolly’) to the monstrous (the discontented vampire of ‘Needles’), but she crafts them all with huge helpings of empathy and heart.”


From Booklist:

“The collection begins with the fascinating and haunting tale of a serial killer in ‘Covenant’ and ends with the recent ‘Erase, Erase, Erase,’ a haunting look at responsibility, identity, and memory. Notable in between are a tale of a literal rock god (‘Hobnoblin Blues’), a visit with Doc Holliday (‘Faster Gun’), even a murder mystery with unexpected and far-reaching consequences (‘Dolly’).”


From Kirkus:

“From the award-winning author of The Red-Stained Wings (2019, etc.), a collection of 27 tales published between 2005 and 2019, spanning most of Bear's career. Readers familiar with Bear's novels soon learn to expect the unexpected, with characters, worlds, and ideas eyed from drastically skewed perspectives.”


I mean, even Kirkus liked it. That’s a hat trick!
