Description

Worlds Seen in Passing is an anthology of award-winning, eye-opening, genre-defining science fiction, fantasy, and horror from Tor.com's first ten years, edited by Irene Gallo.

"A fresh new story going up at Tor.com is always an Event."--Charlie Jane Anders

Since it began in 2008, Tor.com has explored countless new worlds of fiction, delving into possible and impossible futures, alternate and intriguing pasts, and realms of fantasy previously unexplored. Its hundreds of remarkable stories span from science fiction to fantasy to horror, and everything in between. Now Tor.com is making some of those worlds available for the first time in print.

This volume collects some of the best short stories Tor.com has to offer, with Hugo and Nebula Award-winning short stories and novelettes chosen from all ten years of the program.
