About the Author

Neil Clarke is the award-winning publisher and editor in chief of Clarkesworld magazine, winner of three Hugo Awards for Best Semiprozine, and the editor of The Best Science Fiction of the Year, an ongoing anthology series from Night Shade Books.


"This hefty anthology of imperial SF covers great space battles, small dramas within an empire, hopeless bureaucracy, and even living space stations, zooming in and out to capture every nuance ... The diverse array of stories ensures that there's plenty of interest for any fan of large-scale SF." --Publishers Weekly "Clarke has assembled a wide range of authors -- from old masters like Robert Silverberg to more recent talents such as Aliette De Bodard -- each offering a different take on the central premise... There isn't a bad piece amongst them ... the Galaxy really is there for the taking." --Starburst, reviewed by Alister Davison "As editor Clarke points out in his introduction, when most people hear the term galactic empire, they immediately picture Darth Vader and Star Wars. But there is a long history of star-faring empires in the genre, with stories that imagine our human tendencies to explore and conquer among the stars... The stories gathered here, all of which have appeared elsewhere, show the huge range of possibilities of the chosen theme." --Library Journal "The first must-read anthology of the year, no question, is Neil Clarke's Galactic Empires, an ambitious (read: huge) collection of SF tales featuring far-flung confederations in the stars. The TOC is a who's-who of virtually everyone doing important work at short length in science fiction." --John O'Neil, Black Gate "Neil Clarke is the editor for Clarkesworld Magazine, one of the absolute best short-fiction magazines on the internet, which makes this particular volume a must buy. The other reason to pick this up? The heavy-hitters on the table of contents." --The Verge, "16 science fiction and fantasy novels you don't want to miss in January" "A superb collection of 22 ... remarkable stories." --BestScienceFictionBooks.com, "12 Great New SF Titles to Start 2017"
