Win a copy of The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year Volume 6, edited by JONATHAN STRAHAN

I have five copies of The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year, Volume 6, an anthology edited by Jonathan Strahan, up for grabs, courtesy of the nice folks at Night Shade Books. For more info about this title: Canada, USA, Europe.

Here's the blurb:

An ancient society of cartographer wasps create delicately inscribed maps; a bodyjacking parasite is faced with imminent extinction; an AI makes a desperate gambit to protect its child from a ravenous dragon; a professor of music struggles with the knowledge that murder is not too high a price for fame; living origami carries a mother's last words to her child; a steam girl conquers the realm of imagination; Aliens attack Venus, ignoring an incredulous earth; a child is born on Mars...

The science fiction and fantasy fiction fields continue to evolve, setting new marks with each passing year. For the sixth year in a row, master anthologist Jonathan Strahan has collected stories that captivate, entertain, and showcase the very best the genre has to offer. Critically acclaimed, and with a reputation for including award-winning speculative fiction, The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year is the only major "best of" anthology to collect both fantasy and science fiction under one cover
