Tor.com will celebrate its tenth anniversary on July 20, 2018. It’s hard to believe. I feel like we started yesterday… or was it a million years ago? I can’t decide. What I do know is that we are as excited today as we were then. We wanted to build a place that treated science fiction and fantasy (and related subjects) with gravitas and humor, a place to have fun without shying away from weightier, more thoughtful subjects. In short, we wanted to build a place where we wanted to hang out. Much has changed over the years but the essence remains the same—we’re still talking about the things we love. Through all the hashtags and trending topics, we still find the key to success is focusing on good, solid content.
Short fiction has been a cornerstone of the site since the day we launched. I am excited to announce that, as part of our celebration to mark the occasion, we will be publishing a hardcover anthology of some of my favorite stories over the past decade. Worlds Seen in Passing: Ten Years of Tor.com Short Fiction will be out early this fall. Below is the list of contributing authors. It’s such a stellar group, I really couldn’t not be more proud to have been involved with these stories.
