Locus Award Winners for Best Anthology

The Locus Award for Best Anthology is bestowed upon the best collection of short fiction that is compiled from the works of several authors. This differentiates this award from the award for Best Collection, which honors compilations of short fiction in which the works are all from a single author.

Though the award had a fair amount of variety until 1987, with Terry Carr's Best Science Fiction of the Year series showing up four times in nine voting years, since 1987, the award has been dominated by Gardner Dozois and his Year's Best Science Fiction series. In the last twenty-five years the Year's Best Science Fiction series has won this award for Dozois eighteen times. Dozois has also won this award three more times with other anthology collections, although in each of those cases he shared the award with a coeditor. In short, it seems that your best bet to have a chance to win this award is to either be Gardner Dozois, or team up to edit a book with Gardner Dozois.
