Celebrating the Birth . . . Gardner Raymond Dozois

Gardner Raymond Dozois (born July 23, 1947) i
Although a two-time Nebula Award winning short story writer, he is perhaps best known for his editing, both of Asimov's Science Fiction (1984 - 2004) and of The Year's Best Science Fiction.  If you haven't read one of the "Year's Best" anthologies, do yourself a favor and run to your nearest bookstore (new or used) and get one.  With Dozois concentrating so much on Editing, we are lucky to have one story by him available for free, an audio version of "A Dream of Noonday"

      "A man drifts between recollections of his childhood and observations of his present situation. The prose is dream-like, almost hypnotic in its effect, with an overall impact that may well stay with you for a lifetime... or not." - OTRplotspot
