To observe an eclipse is to witness a rare and unusual event. Under darkened skies the sun becomes a negative image of itself, its corona transforming the landscape into a strange space where anything might happen, and any story may be true…

In the spirit of classic science fiction anthologies such as Universe, Orbit, and Starlight, master anthologist Jonathan Strahan (The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year) presents the non-themed genre anthology Eclipse: New Science Fiction and Fantasy. Here you will find stories where strange and wonderful things happen—where reality is eclipsed by something magical and new.

Following in the footsteps of the multiple-award-nominated Eclipse One, Eclipse Two delivers new fiction by some of the genre’s most celebrated authors, including Alastair Reynolds’s star-spanning saga of Imperial assassination and courtly intrigue; Stephen Baxter’s tantalizing tale of impermanence and memory, as first contact with an alien artificial intelligence has very real consequences; Nancy Kress’s claustrophobic fable of shared space, life delayed, and critical choices; and Ted Chiang’s evocative story of an all-metal world, its argon-breathing inhabitants, and the scientist who performs the ultimate self-examination.
