  1. Hi. Grania Davis and I are currently compiling a collection of Asian science fiction and fantasy stories (in English) and have gathered stories by top writers from Japan, China, the Philippines, and Thailand. We'd like to consider some top-rate short stories from India, perhaps three or four of the best published in India for 2005-2006. I'm wondering if you might be able to let me know which those might be?

    That's a huge question, and perhaps the easiest way to answer it would be to list award-winning short stories up to 10,000 words. Our anthology is intended for a primarily North American audience, but we're interested in stories that have a perspective that's different from typical Anglo-American views of the world and universe.

    Grania and I recently published Speculative Japan: Outstanding Tales of Japanese SF & F (Kurodahan Press, 2007), Grania has edited several anthologies of her own, and we're both professionally published authors in Japan and the USA. The is a serious inquiry for a serious project. You can answer here, but please also e-mail me at my G-mail account:

    I hope I'll hear from someone in the know about Indian SF stories! Thanks for indulging my question.
