Strahan Year’s Best 2017 ToC

Here’s the table of contents for the next best-of anthology from Jonathan Strahan, due in April.  I added more details on the locations and tried to categorize between novelettes and short stories but on a few there wasn’t enough info so they just went to short story by default.  So far there isn’t any confirmation of the existence of forthcoming best-of’s from Rich Horton, Neil Clarke, or the “Best American” series.
