“Watching her sleep, he felt himself slide beyond the need for rest, into some visionary realm inside his own head.” – from “The Oracle Spoke” by Holly Phillips

Step into a world of wonder, epiphany, and danger. From the return of old gods to the adventures of the last dragon on Earth, from quantum physics to manticores trained for the circus, this unique anthology takes readers on journeys to realms both distant and oddly familiar. . .

Selected from the critically-acclaimed online magazine Clarkesworld, Realms collects the work of 24 visionary writers of short fiction, including such World Fantasy, Philip K. Dick, Tiptree, Hugo, and Campbell Award winners and finalists as Jay Lake, Jeff VanderMeer, Elizabeth Bear, Catherynne M. Valente, Caitlin Kiernan, Ian Watson, Sarah Monette, and Holly Phillips — and amazing stories from up-and-comers like Ekaterina Sedia, Cat Rambo, Barth Anderson, and many more!

    This one looks to be a winner for sure.
    Sometimes it saddens me to think that there will never be enough time in this life to read all of the things I want to read – although surely I can get to this one!
