Best Science Fiction Novellas of the Year 1. ed Terry Carr. 1979

Prior to the launching of Gardner Dozois’ jumbo-sized ‘Years Best SF’ series in 1984, the annual anthology market had consisted of considerably slimmer volumes which could squeeze in nine or ten stories at best. Terry Carr was several years into his annual collection series, which had started in 1972, when he experimented with a companion publication, consisting of half a dozen novellas. The series lasted only two years. Stories by : Christopher Priest, Donald Kingsbury, Gene Wolfe, Joan D. Vinge, John Varley, Michael Bishop.
