Only 4 left in stock (more on the way). I read and enjoyed each of the 21 stories in David Hartwell and Kathryn Cramer's collection from 2008 science fiction stories. The introductions were just the right mix of author bios and pointers to other works. I particularly appreciated the inclusion of web addresses for most authors so I could find out more about them immediately after enjoying one of their stories.

It is published by HarperCollins under the Eos imprint. The creators of the books are not involved with the similarly titled Year's Best Science Fiction series. Year's Best SF 6 (2001).

Book in the Year's Best SF Series). by Kathryn Cramer and David G. Hartwell. Each and every story in the book is well-written, intelligent & fun! As a pathologically fast reader I relish anthologies to find new authors & now I have 20 (already read most of Gaiman & he has one in here,too!) Most are hard sci-fi!

I read and enjoyed each of the 21 stories in David Hartwell and Kathryn Cramer's collection from 2008 science fiction stories. The introductions were just the right mix of author bios and pointers to other works. I particularly appreciated the inclusion of web addresses for most authors so I could find out more about them immediately after enjoying one of their stories.

My favorite six stories all had a strong character focus, using future settings and new technologies as background to the concerns of interesting people.

Carolyn Ives Gilman's "Arkfall" is a planetary romance that follows the developing relationships between crewmembers of a living submarine as it drifts through unmapped territory under an alien ocean.

Kathleen Ann Gooman's "Memory Dog" shows how the right dog can be a woman's best friend--and her best link to the past and future.

Alastair Reynolds' "Fury" reminds us that our oldest, darkest debts are sometimes paid by those we hold close.

Jeff VanderMeer's "Fixing Hannover" shows a castaway engineer's value to those who pull him from the sea--and those who come to take him home.

Mary Rickert's "Traitor" and Sue Burke's "Spiders" are each enjoyable on their own, but more so as a contrasting pair. Taking a darker and lighter view, respectively, they illustrate how a child, awash in too much information from the world, can muster the wisdom to focus on what is important. We wonder what becomes of them.

I offer my gratitude for the Kindle version that allowed me to read these stories unobtrusively during a series of boring monologues by the senior executives in my agency. Their collective misunderstanding of the smile on my face during their orations is certain to benefit my career. This collection is worth your time in similar or better circumstances.

I dearly wish that Amazon would provide a table of contents for Kindle ebooks in their on line description in order that I could more easily rate and review the contents; going through and compiling it myself is too onerous. But I digress, as that isn't really germane to this rating/review (are you listening, Amazon?!?!?)

I found many of these stories to be engaging and entertaining, although as with any short story collection, there were those that I considered "clunkers". Overall, it was worth the $6 for the four or five nights' worth of bedtime reading contained herein. As a short story collection, it wasn't a standout, but then they can't all be (and seldom does such come along). I vacillated between a three or four star rating and settled on four as it was better than average but not superb.

First 20 pages fell out the first time I opened the book. This was supposed to be for my University class.

This is a well chosen collection. I enjoy the format for the SF## series. The short introductory bios, with web addresses, allow me to further explore the authors of stories I liked. I have to agree with those that have said the price it right. In contrast to the negative reviewer, I am buying the book so that I *don't* have to explore the internet, reading everything published to find the gems. I am paying for the curatorial effort and for the story in print so I can read it wherever and whenever I care to, and to have someone recommend new authors I may like. This years collection is very satisfying and entertaining.

This is a collection. Many very good science fiction short stories.

Best of the year anthos help sort through the chaff that clutters bookstore shelves. This one, plus the Dozois and Horton collections, do a great service.

I purchased this as a gift for my son-in-law who is a sci-fi enthusiast. My daughter said that as soon as it arrived he sat right down that evening and began reading it. He found it an interesting book of short stories as he could finish one in a sitting; also, he was able to read some of the new offerings for the year this way.
Great Read!
