    As we've been doing for the past few years (I think 2014 is the earliest), the time has come for a thread celebrating the stories from F&SF, published in 2017, that are nominated for awards or chosen for the various best-of-year anthologies.

    Jonathan Strahan has just announced the table of contents for THE BEST SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY OF THE YEAR, VOLUME TWELVE, to be published by Solaris in April 2018.

    Two stories from F&SF are included:

    “My English Name”, by R. S. Benedict (May/June 2017), and
    “The Hermit of Houston”, by Samuel R. Delany (September/October 2017)

    Congratulations to the authors, and of course to editor Charlie and publisher Gordon!

    The full TOC is here: http://www.jonathanstrahan.com.au/wp/2017/12/15/toc-reveal-the-best-science-fiction-fantasy-of-the-year-volume-12/

    Gardner Dozois shared an early present with his Facebook followers on Christmas eve when he posted the Table of Contents for THE YEAR'S BEST SCIENCE FICTION: THIRTY-FIFTH ANNUAL COLLECTION, which will come out in July of 2018. This year, he selected four stories from F&SF for the collection.

    "My English Name" by R. S. Benedict (May/June, 2017)
    "Starlight Express" by Michael Swanwick (Sept/Oct 2017)
    "The History of the Invasion Told in Five Dogs" by Kelly Jennings (May/June 2017)

    Gardner Dozois has announced the contents of THE VERY BEST OF THE BEST: 30 YEARS OF THE YEAR'S BEST SCIENCE FICTION, due out in December 2018 or in January 2019.

    This is a kind of "super-best", with selections from the last 15 volumes of his long-running Year's Best series.

    One F&SF story from 2017, included in Volume 35, is selected here as well: "My English Name" by R. S. Benedict (May/June, 2017)

    A second F&SF story was also chosen: "Finisterra", by David Moles (December 2007). I thought I'd mention that here, since we don't have a thread for 2007 stories.

    Great news—the 2018 Locus Award for best novelette goes to:

    “The Hermit of Houston”, by Samuel R. Delany (September/October 2017).

    This is the first time in eighteen years that a story from F&SF has won a Locus Award! It was well deserved, even though it took a Grand Master to break the drought. Congratulations to the author, and to Charlie!

    Thanks, dolphintornsea! We were very happy for the story and the author, and it was my honor to be able to attend the ceremony and accept the award.

    My F&SF story, "The Prevaricator" has been picked up for one of the "Year's Best" anthos. Can't say which yet, because the editor has asked me not to give details while submissions are still open. But he called the story one of his "must haves."
