Included are Orson Scott Card's first “Alvin Maker” story in a decade, and an original adventure by Fred Van Lente, creator of Cowboys and Aliens. Other contributors include Tobias Buckell, David Farland, Alan Dean Foster, Jeffrey Ford, Laura Anne Gilman, Rajan Khanna, Mike Resnick, Beth Revis, Ben H. Winters, Christie Yant, and Charles Yu
