Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the new millennium, what secrets lay beyond the far reaches of the universe? What mysteries belie the truths we once held to be self evident? The world of science fiction has long been a porthole into the realities of tomorrow, blurring the line between life and art. Now, in The Years Best Science Fiction: Twenty-Eighth Annual Collection the very best SF authors explore ideas of a new world.

This venerable collection brings together award winning authors and masters of the field such as Robert Reed, Alastair Reynolds, Damien Broderick, Carrie Vaughn, Ian R. MacLeod and Cory Doctorow. And with an extensive recommended reading guide and a summation of the year in science fiction, this annual compilation has become the definitive must-read anthology for all science fiction fans and readers interested in breaking into the genre.

Review:

"This venerable annual series continues in its usual mode, emphasizing print magazines and anthologies and highlighting such established authors as Alastair Reynolds, Michael Swanwick, and Robert Reed (who actually has two stories in the anthology). However, relative newcomers like Yoon Ha Lee and Hannu Rajaniemi inject fresh blood, and more stories are drawn from online venues than in previous years. Carrie Vaughn's 'Amaryllis' quietly imbues a semidystopian future with optimism, while Allen M. Steele's 'The Emperor of Mars' explores one man's attempt to stay sane in the face of devastating news. 'Sleeping Dogs' by Joe Haldeman is a cynical look at postwar trauma and government manipulation. Rachel Swirsky's multigenerational 'Again and Again and Again' shows that some things never change. This series remains an excellent resource for those who can't keep up with the field's increasing annual output. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
