Year’s Bests: New stories in single-author collections?

David Hartwell points out that it's easy for Year's Best editors to miss new stories (non-reprints) that appear in single-author collections.

So if you were the author of a science fiction, fantasy, or horror short-story collection that came out in 2009, and your collection contained one or more previously unpublished stories, it might be worthwhile to make sure that various Year's Best editors know about those new stories.

Some of the YBs for work published in 2009 are closed by now, but a couple of them are not quite final. See my Year's Bests info site for details (though there are a couple I'm not yet certain about).
