Pressestimmen “A stunning and satisfying retrospective. . . . This is a complex and fantastic project. . . . It’s handsome huge and amazingly well-curated; our editors here have done a fabulous job. . . . I couldn’t ask for more truly. It’s diverse wide-ranging engaging and fun; the stories are introduced well juxtaposed better and the overall effect is one of dizzying complexity and depth.” —“A definitive volume of the genre. . . . This is a big book and it’s an essential tome for readers who are dedicated SF fans or casual newcomers alike. Do they manage to redefine science fiction? I think so.” —The Verge“The Big Book of Science Fiction is exactly what it says it is nearly 1200 pages of stories by the genre’s luminaries like H. G. Wells Arthur C. Clarke and Ursula K. Le Guin as well as lesser-known authors. . . . [it] prizes diversity of all kinds and translates work by several writers into English—some for the first time.” —The New York Times Book Review'How big is big? In this case we’re talking nearly 1200 double-columned pages dozens of representative short classics of science fiction and newly translated work from around the world. There are surprises too: Did you know that W.E.B. Du Bois wrote sf? That’s just one indication that the VanderMeers hope to establish a more culturally diverse science fiction canon.' —The Washington Post (10 Hidden Gems)“An enormous anthology of science fiction put together by two of our sharpest purveyors of the genre. . . . This volume is a perfect mix of the classic and the unexpected.” —Flavorwire “Everything about this book is exciting. First it’s huge—some 750000 words fill its 1200 pages. Second it’s been compiled by one of sci-fi’s coolest power couples—she’s a distinguished editor ( Weird Tales) he’s a superb writer (2014’s Southern Reach trilogy). And finally it’s not just another survey of white men in science fiction (aka Phillip K.’s dicks). For every Wells and Dick and George R.R. Martin there’s work by Le Guin Butler and Katherine MacLean—not to mention stories from all over the world from China (Liu Cixin) to Argentina (Silvina Campo). Gift it to a friend then buy one for yourself.” —Jason Kehe Wired (This Summer’s Must-Read Books)'Borges once imagined an infinite book with pages of infinite thinness. The Vandermeers approach that event horizon with this double-columned paperback of more than 1200 pages containing some 750000 words in more than 100 stories. . . . A review of a few hundred words can only begin to suggest both the contents and quality of this excellent collection of short fiction. The Vandermeers sidestep territorial quagmires by defining sci-fi simply and effectively as fiction that depicts the future in a stylized or realistic manner. This definition allows them a wide range of choices. . . . This book could serve as a portal to years of pleasurable and thought-provoking reading.' —Milwaukee Journal Sentinel“Science fiction anthologies are a dime a dozen but there’s that one that comes across every now and again that is truly essential. This is the case for Ann and Jeff Vandermeer’s Big Book of Science Fiction an anthology that goes back to the genre’s roots in pulp fiction all the way up to the end of the 20th Century picking the best stories from around the world (including a number never before translated into English) . . . We took one look at this massive anthology’s Table of Contents and fell in love at first sight.” —io9“Whether you’re a life-long fan of science fiction or layperson diving deep into a new genre this incredible anthology offers a comprehensive genre education between two covers. In more than 1000 pages and upwards of 100 stories the VanderMeers have compiled a truly representative history of SF from its early beginnings to its myriad modern incarnations. . . . This is an unparalleled achievement and undoubtedly one of the most important books you’ll buy this year.” —Barnes and Noble Booksellers’ Picks“When it comes to massive and comprehensive anthologies focused on a specific strain of fiction the editorial team of Ann and Jeff VanderMeer has set the bar remarkably high.”  —LitHub“Ann and Jeff VanderMeer are a powerhouse editing team; their recent anthology of weird fiction helped define a genre and took a smart historical global view while doing it. This anthology does a similar feat to science fiction with an expansive aesthetic and work from a host of writers including W.E.B. DuBois Cixin Liu Ursula K. Le Guin and George R.R. Martin.” —Vol. 1 Brooklyn“These stories were chosen for continuing relevance and arranged to interplay like voices in a great conversation: shifting and offering new insights. . . . Throughout this collection every piece of wrack scavenger bird and sorceress contains multitudes.” —Locus Magazine'A fun and solid genre education.' —Library Journal (Starred Review)'At 105 stories—taken from around the world and since the genre’s very beginnings to its recent heights—and more than 1000 pages this extraordinary anthology handily earns its billing as the 'ultimate collection' of science fiction. . . . The VanderMeers longtime SF/F editors (The Time Traveler’s Almanac and many others) provide a critical survey of the field as well as incisive biographies of the contributors.' —Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)“If your readerly appetite is not quite novel-sized you’ll definitely want to check out this month’s short fiction offerings. If you only choose one title make it The Big Book of Science Fiction edited by Ann & Jeff VanderMeer.” —Kirkus Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Ann VanderMeer currently serves as an acquiring fiction editor for Cheeky Frawg Books and She was the editor-in-chief for Weird Tales for five years during which time she was nominated three times for the Hugo Award winning one.
