Review:

"Continuing the annual tradition, award-winning editor Dozois selects 32 of 2009's strongest short fiction pieces from print and online venues. The authors of these stories are almost all experienced and prolific, with many award winners and few surprise newcomers to be found. The offerings run the gamut of science fiction: for example, Nicola Griffith's 'It Takes Two' explores love through chemical attraction, John Barnes's 'Things Undone' is a time-blurring exploration of alternate history, and John Kessel's 'Events Preceding the Helvetican Renaissance' is a far-future adventure. This smorgasbord of thought-provoking fiction ensures that any reader will likely find something appealing. Rounding out the collection is Dozois's writeup of all things 2009 SF: fiction, nonfiction, media, awards, and obituaries. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
