New Release: More Human Than Human, edited by Neil Clarke!

We’re very excited to celebrate the release week for More Human Than Human, which officially hit shelves this past Tuesday, 11/7. MHTH is our newest themed anthology—this one’s about androids and other humanoid robots—from short fiction editor extraordinaire Neil Clarke (@clarkesworld). You may have seen the book’s front cover floating around, but unless you booked it to the store and already have your copy in hand, here’s a peek at the full wrap-around. If you’re interested in seeing the complete table of contents, head over to the book’s page here, where you can find handy links to purchase it as well.

Donato Giancola (@DonatoArts) has done some outstanding covers for us in the past (here’s a great example), and though we’re probably biased, we think he outdid himself here. He and designer Claudia Noble truly knocked this one out of the park.

There are too many great Easter eggs to list them all here (besides, isn’t finding them for yourself half the fun?), but here’s a small spoiler: beauty certainly is in the eye of the beholder . . .


Friday bonus: Some great trade reviews! Click on the links to read the full write-up for each.

“Well-known SF authors grace this . . . top-notch selection of imaginative and thought-provoking stories.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“The best of the stories gathered here by five-time Hugo nominee Clarke (founder and editor of Clarkesworld magazine) use the tropes of androids and artificial intelligence for multifaceted interrogations of humanity and society . . . Overall high quality.”—Publishers Weekly


You can pick More Human than Human up for your weekend read wherever fine books are sold, and you should feel free to award yourself a few extra points if you’ve already noticed the Philip K. Dick reference in the title, or if you hummed the tune to a particular Grammy-nominated song while you were reading this post.
