Toiya Kristen Finley, "The Death of Sugar Daddy" (Electric Velocipede, Spring)
Kelly Link, "Secret Identity" (Geektastic)
Genevieve Valentine, "Bespoke" (Strange Horizons, July 27)
John Kessel, "Events Preceding the Helvetican Renaissance" (The New Space Opera 2)

I hope to be able to announce the TOC for Rebooted: The Web's Best Sci-Fi and Fantasy: 2010 Download, very soon.

As ever, assembling the contents involved some agonizing choices. The book will include an extended "Recommended Reading" list, but I'll say here that the three stories that I most wished to include and couldn't fit were: "A Tiny Feast", by Chris Adrian (from the New Yorker); "Useless Things", by Maureen McHugh (from Eclipse Three); and "The Dragaman's Bride", by Andy Duncan (from The Dragon Book).
