2001: An Odyssey in words is a collection of twenty-seven stories, all exactly 2001 words in length and written to honour the late, great author Arthur C Clarke. The anthology is a collaboration between The Arthur C. Clarke Award and NewCon Press which began life as a kickstarter project, exceeding it's target goal in just over a month (SFBook was one such backer).
Those contributing include some of the biggest names writing science fiction today - ten of whom have won the Arthur C Clarke award. Those include our very own reviewer, author and all-round clever bod Allen Stroud.
The collection has been edited by the Director of the Arthur C Clarke Award - Tom Hunter and owner of NewCon Press - Ian Whates Ian has also kindly written a thoughtful introduction to the anthology. It's a wonderfully diverse collection of stories (along with three non-fiction articles) and feels like a rat-pack of 21st century science fiction authors - it's a serious roster of some of the finest writers today. Each story adds something unique to the collection and there isn't a single weak entry.
