Some interesting trends in there, if you're an anorak like me.

30 stories. More than usual for Dozois -- normally his ToC runs to between 23 and 28.

It's the split that I find most interesting. 14 stories from magazines. 5 from Asimovs, 4 from F&SF, 3 from IZ, one each from Clarkesworld and Postscripts. When Dozois was editing Asimovs, typically he picked 10 to 12 from that one magazine. No bias there, of course. :roll: I personally rate IZ ahead of F&SF and on a par with Asimovs, but that's my taste

What is a surprise is the 16 stories from anthologies. 3 from Eclipse 2, 2 each from Fast Forward 2, Solaris 2 & Galactic Empires, plus 1 each from 7 other different anthologies.

Assuming that Dozois isn't completely out of sync with the rest of the field, that implies a dominance that anthologies haven't had since about 1973.

The bad news about F&SF is that it's going bi-monthly this year, which is a shame. It's head and shoulders above the other American magazines in my opinion.

But I'm drifting off topic. Congratulations to the Interzone three!
