Review:

This is the third installment of David G. Hartwell's annual Year's Best collection, and he writes that it is "full of science fiction--every story in the book is clearly that and not something else."

Hartwell chose 22 stories this time around, a healthy increase from last year's collection. (This doesn't represent more pages, but rather in selecting stories of shorter length, Hartwell was able to fit more of them into the same space.) As usual, Hartwell does a masterful job of picking wonderful works from a variety of venues, and the names here include Ray Bradbury, William Gibson, and Gene Wolfe. This is the perfect collection for readers seeking stories that are quintessentially science fiction. Year's Best SF is rapidly becoming one of the most important annual anthologies in the science fiction field. --Craig Engler
