The Best of Subterranean
A peculiar museum that collects the final breaths of the dying. A trickster god plays high school football. A man’s entire life has been sabotaged by a shadowy force, or so says the strange woman with the time-travel box. A musical prodigy is accused of murder but has an idea of how to compose his way out of prison. Profiteers in space stumble upon a prize, if they can survive long enough to seize it.
Horror. Fantasy. Alternate history. Science fiction. Thriller. All these genres and more have been covered in Subterranean Magazine, and many of them are represented in this 700-plus-page anthology of stories from some of the top names in speculative fiction today.
Commemorating nearly a decade of Subterranean Magazine, this collection not only represents all the weird and wonderful that the magazine brought to the readers but the magazine’s dedication to variety and experimentation in its storytelling. From novellas to short stories, all tales were welcome so long as they brought something new to the table.
That is a legacy worth celebrating. The Best of Subterranean is precisely that, the best.
