2020 VISIONS contents announced

Yesterday Rick Novy, editor of our forthcoming anthology of near-future science fiction 2020 Visions, announced the table of contents. I repeat the list here:

Mary Robinette Kowal – “Birthright”
Sheila Finch – “The Persistence of Butterflies”
Randy Henderson – “A Shelter for Living Things”
Jason S. Ridler – “Showing Light”
Ernest Hogan – “Radiation is Groovy, Kill the Pigs”
David Lee Summers – “The Revelation of Thought”
Jeff Spock – “Teh Afterl1fe
Emily Devenport – “If the Sun’s at Five O’Clock, It Must be Yellow Daisies”
Cat Rambo – “Therapy Buddha”
Jack Mangan – “Dead Rookies”
David Boop – “Organ Cloning While You Wait”
Spencer Ellsworth – “The Black Plague of Our Generation”
Gareth L. Powell – “The Bigger The Star, The Faster It Burns”
Alethea Kontis – “Pocket Full of Posey”
Alex Wilson – “Nervewrecking”
David Gerrold – “Time Capsule 2120: Actual Comments from Lunar Tourists”

I am very excited about these stories and about seeing all of these particular writers in a single table of contents. It's a terrific mix of pros, semi-pros and newcomers who all found something astounding to say about the world a decade hence. I let Rick read and select stories without nosing into his process at all, so seeing the resulting ToC for the first time was as pleasant a treat for  me as I think it will be to many readers. A couple of these writers I have published before in M-Brane SF (Cat Rambo and Jason Ridler), while Alex Wilson appeared in my GLBT anthology Things We Are Not last year. A couple of the names were altogether new to me, while I was familiar with the work of many of the others.  Rick plans to profile the authors on his site over the coming weeks, and the first of those profiles (of Mary Robinette Kowal) is up now.
