From release/information: In 1949, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction was founded upon two radical principles: to publish SF and fantasy in one volume and to emphasize literary quality. Fifty years later, F&SF is still going strong--indeed, it is the most acclaimed of SF's longest-running magazines. In honor of this achievement, publisher Edward L. Ferman and editor Gordon Van Gelder have assembled many of F&SF's finest stories from the preceding five years for The Best from Fantasy & Science Fiction: The Fiftieth Anniversary Anthology.

In Hugo Award winner Bruce Sterling's droll "Maneki Neko," a U.S. agent battles a perplexing, worldwide Net conspiracy. In World Fantasy Award winner John Crowley's insightful "Gone," alien invaders present earth with a mysterious and compelling choice. In Maureen F. McHugh's thought-provoking, Hugo-winning alternate history, "The Lincoln Train," President Lincoln's survival begets a world in which white Southerners are exiled to a concentration camp in Indian territory. The anthology also includes Elizabeth Hand's Nebula and World Fantasy Award-winning "Last Summer at Mars Hill"; Gene Wolfe's allegorical science fantasy "No Planets Strike"; Bruce Holland Rogers's Nebula-winning "Lifeboat on a Burning Sea"; Harlan Ellison's angry "Sensible City"; Paul Di Filippo's satirical "Have Gun, Will Edit"; Ray Bradbury's affectionate Laurel and Hardy tribute, "Another Fine Mess"; and Ursula K. Le Guin's Nebula-winning "Solitude." --Cynthia Ward
