I was also really happy to note that last one, Wendy Wagner’s “Barnstormers”, which first appeared in Ideomancer. (I was the slush reader who caught that one–for some reason this always makes me feel extra-pleased when the story goes on to do well!)
Strange Horizons makes a great showing, too: several of these stories first appeared there, including mine, plus work by editors Brit Mandelo and Julia Rios made the list. I’m proud to appear in this company.
