World Literature Today's newest issue (May/June 2010) includes a special section devoted to speculative fiction. Editor Daniel Simon writes: "SF in WLT?" and answers with, "In the current issue, it matters less how we define the world and more how we see through it, or around it, and into the realm of other possibilities." And so, SciFi it is - featuring Kij Johnson, China Mieville, Federik Pohl, George Zebrowski, James Gunn, Lavie Tidhar, Pamela Sargent, Paul Kincaid, David Fowler, Grady Hendrix, Tom Shippey, and Davor Slamnig.
Exclusive online content includes Rob Bollmar's podcast interview with Cory Doctorow, the complete text of the short stories by Pamel Sargent and Lavie Tidhar (excerpted in the print edition), Paul Di Filippo's extended reviews of the best speculative fiction of 2009, and much more SF-related content.
