Lookin’ Good: Upgraded by Neil Clarke (Ed.)

UpgradedI’m just going to list a few names here, and then you can tell me whether you want this anthology or not, okay? Here we go. Elizabeth Bear. Benjanun Sriduangkaew. Yoon Ha Lee. Need more? Okay. Ken Liu. Peter Watts. E. Lily Yu. I can keep going for a while, you know.

Alright, fine, I’ll wait while you go order Upgraded, the new, Kickstarter-funded anthology edited by Clarkesworld mastermind Neil Clarke.

Upgraded is billed as “an anthology of original cyborg stories edited by a cyborg. Stronger. Better. Faster. We will rebuild you.” With a stunning cover by Hugo Award-winning artist Julie Dillon, this looks like a must-read for anyone interested in SF short stories in general and cyborgs in particular.
