With a unique combination of foresight and perspective, Dozois continues to collect outstanding work by newcomers and established authors alike, reflecting the present state of the genre while suggesting its future directions. With the editor's annual summary of the year in the field, and his appendix of recommended reading, this book is indispensable for anyone interested in contemporary science fiction.

About the Author:

Gardner Dozois (1947-2018), one of the most acclaimed editors in science-fiction, has won the Hugo Award for Best Editor 15 times. He was the editor of Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine for 20 years. He is the editor of The Year’s Best Science Fiction anthologies and co-editor of the Warrior anthologies, Songs of the Dying Earth, and many others. As a writer, Dozois twice won the Nebula Award for best short story. He lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Another bumper crop of 28 new tales, varying in length from novella down to a handful of pages, drawn from sf's 1991 magazines and anthologies. The standouts: Nancy Kress's assured tale of genetic enhancements that do away with the need to sleep; a splendid far-future yarn from Walter Jon Williams wherein a humanity united under Buddhism faces the challenge of warlike aliens; an eerie fusion of physics and Indian religions from Gregory Benford; memory theft and a bleak near-future from Brian W. Aldiss; an equally bleak 20th-century retrospective from Kim Stanley Robinson; another of Mike Resnick's sprightly future-Africa variations, and of Connie Willis's tales of the London Blitz. Also on the agenda: computer personalities, alternate histories, corporate dirty tricks, feral children, time travel, knowledge of the future, supermen, genetic warfare, homelessness, revenge, photographs, shipwreck on the moon, future sex, alien hurricanes, death, robots, art, generational conflicts, and WW II. Well up to par in terms of quality, quantity, and scope: the essential guide to science fiction's shorter-format activities. -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
