From Fast Forward 2:
"The Kindness of Strangers" by Nancy Kress, short story
"Catherine Drewe", Paul Cornell, novelette *
"An Eligible Boy", Ian McDonald, novelette
"The Gambler", Paolo Bacigalupi, novelette
"True Names" by Benjamin Rosenbaum & Cory Doctorow, novella
* Note that "Catherine Drewe" is technically a short-story, as it lists at 6,674 words. Don't know why it's listed here as a novelette, but very happy to see it being recommended either way.
From Sideways in Crime:
- "The Blood of Peter Francisco" by Paul Park, short story
- "Sacrifice"by Mary Rosenblum, novelette
Congratulations to all those receiving recommendations. 2008 was a great year. On to 2009!
