One of my reading goals of 2010 is to get to more short fiction. Part of that will surely be accomplished with Is There Anybody Out There?, which I mentioned in my 2010 anthology round-up. I was tipped off to the TOC release from the always helpful Marty Halpern. As soon as I saw the list I was shocked by the inclusion of James Morrow. That was all I needed to make sure to pick-up a copy. As if I needed another reason. It is quite a line-up of wonderful short story writers such as Jay Lake, Paul Di Filippo, and Kristine Kathryn Rusch all checking in on the idea of why if there are aliens haven't we heard from them already?
