Issue 66 – March 2012


And Now for a Few Short Words from our Editor

It wouldn’t be appropriate to end this issue without sending congratulations to E. Lily Yu and Catherynne M. Valente for their respective Nebula Award nominations for Best Short Story and Best Novella. We’re quite pleased to see “The Cartographer Wasps and the Anarchist Bees” and “Silently and Very Fast” on the ballot. Good luck! We’ll be rooting for both of you!

A word of advice to our book collector friends: the signed limited edition of “Silently and Very Fast” that was published by WSFA Press is nearly out of print. You might want to grab one while you can.

In other good news, thanks to the continued growth of our Kindle and Weightless Books e-subscriptions, we will be rolling out some more non-fiction features over the next few months. The first of these is scheduled to debut in our April issue. If you’d like to see Clarkesworld continue to grow, please help us spread the word about our subscription options. Details can be found at

Thanks, as always, for your continued support!
