Year’s Best Fantasy 9, Part three

Earlier this year, debuted as an imprint independent from Tor Books by publishing Year’s Best Fantasy 9, David G. Hartwell’s and Kathryn Cramer’s definitive anthology of fantastical stories.

While YBF9 is still available as a print-on demand edition, and you can buy your very own print copy at our store, we’re posting segments of the anthology on, for your reading pleasure. Each of these segments feature three or four stories from the anthology, and are available to all registered users of It’s a great way to sample some of the content in the book before deciding to part with your hard-earned cash, or of simply getting a shorter dose of wonder and the fantastical.

Segment number three features the following stories:

“The Rabbi’s Hobby” by Peter S. Beagle 
“26 Monkeys and the Abyss” by Kij Johnson 
“Philologos; or, A Murder in Bistrita” by Debra Doyle and James D. Macdonald
