An Assortment of Anthologies, Featuring Secret SF Fan Stieg Larsson

Steig Larsson

Welcome back to the British Genre Fiction Focus, Tor.com’s regular round-up of book news from the United Kingdom’s thriving speculative fiction industry.

This week, we begin with the shortlist for the 2013 David Gemmell Legend Awards for Fantasy, which was revealed at Nine Worlds Geekfest in London on Sunday. Being honours decided via public polls, the Legends tend to split the community down the middle, and it’ll be interesting to see what comes of the list released this weekend.

Also in this edition of the British Genre Fiction Focus, news about an assortment of anthologies: a crowd-sourced collection coming from the folks at Angry Robot and Pornokitsch, in conjunction with the Bristol Festival of Literature; and an international effort which promises to showcase A Darker Shade of Sweden, complete with a lost genre short by the late, great Stieg Larsson.

All that, and Al Robertson introduces us to his fist.
