Speculative Fiction 2013

Speculative Fiction 2013 collects over fifty truly awesome pieces from all corners of speculative fiction fandom – from book criticism to incisive commentary on important issues like sexual harassment at conventions; from feminist themes in summer blockbusters to life-changing video games; from the merits of grittiness and the downfalls of grimdark. John W. Campbell award-winning writer Seanan McGuire writes the forward. Seanan is the author of the Toby Daye urban fantasy series, and, under pseudonym Mira Grant, the Newsflesh trilogy and Parasite.
