Clarkesworld Magazine has named Gardner Dozois to helm its new reprint department, which will feature a pair of previously-published sf stories chosen from the past three decades. The first selections will be in Clarkesworld’s April 2013 edition (and in the podcast as well).
Gardner Dozois won 15 Best Professional Editor Hugos while editing Asimov’s between 1986 and 2004. His The Year’s Best Science Fiction Series is the most recognized anthology in the field.
Neil Clarke, Clarkesworld Editor-in-Chief, commented, “Since my heart attack last year, when readers responded with encouragement and support, I’ve been trying to find a way to say ‘thank you’. The reprint department had been on our wish list for some time and when the opportunity to work with someone of Gardner’s caliber arose, I knew I had found the perfect way to express my gratitude.”
