Prompted by a conversation with Jeff Ford, we thought we’d take a look at what stories have been published in 2009 from people who could be termed world SF writers. We’re focusing on people from outside of the traditional Anglophone world (so no US, UK, English-speaking Canada or Australia – all of whom have an obvious advantage), or American/British/etc. ex-pats overseas.
Caveat: my name pops up in these lists. Got to make a living somehow…
And next up is Fantasy Magazine (in descending order this time):
- Into the Monsoon, A.M. Muffaz (Malaysia), 18/11/09
- Lost for Words, Kenneth Yu (Philippines), 02/11/09 (winner of the Halloween Flash Contest)
- Jews in Antarctica, Lavie Tidhar (see?), 12/10/09
- Golden Lilies, Aliette de Bodard (France), 10/08/09 (also in audio)
- The Integrity of the Chain, Lavie Tidhar, 27/07/09
- The Most Dangerous Profession, Sergey Gerasimov (Ukraine), 06/04/09
- Birds, Jean-Claude Dunyach (France), 16/03/09 (translated by Cheryl Curtis)
- Teaching a Pink Elephant to Ski, Rochita Loenen-Ruiz (Philippines/Netherlands), 02/02/09
So, 8 stories by my count, making Fantasy Magazine our top international publisher so far!
