Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For nearly two decades, readers have turned to The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror to find the most rewarding fantastic short stories. Ellen Datlow, Kelly Link, and Gavin Grant continue this critically acclaimed and award-winning tradition with another stunning collection of stories. The fiction and poetry here is culled from an exhaustive survey of the field, nearly four dozen works ranging from fairy tales to gothic horror, from magic realism to dark tales in the Grand Guignol style. Rounding out the volume are the editors' invaluable overviews of the year in fantasy and horror, and sections on graphic novels, by Charles Vess; on anime and manga, by Joan D. Vinge; on media, by Ed Bryant; and on music, by Charles de Lint. With a long list of Honorable Mentions, this is an indispensable reference as well as the best reading available in fantasy and horror.

Review:

"The excellent 19th volume in this distinguished anthology series offers 40 stories and poems sure to please fantasy and horror connoisseurs. Highlights by relatively new talent include Delia Sherman's winning suburban fantasy, 'Walpurgis Afternoon'; Glenn Hirshberg's 'American Morons,' a disturbing tale of the second Gulf War; and Mark Samuels's gruesomely powerful 'Shallaballah.' Notable contributions by veterans include Bruce Sterling's 'Denial,' a fantasy unlike his cybernetic science fiction; Howard Waldrop's wild vaudeville 'The Horse of a Different Color (That You Rode In On)'; and Isabel Allende's 'The Guggenheim Lovers,' a beautiful story about lovers within Bilboa's Guggenheim Museum. Datlow, Link and Grant, assisted by various sub-editors, provide thorough summations of the year in each genre and various media as well as a list of honorable mentions for 2005." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.

Review:

"The editors present a veritable feast of fantasy and horror, some of which readers will relish, and others of which, in the grand tradition of the genres, may turn stomachs." VOYA

Review:

"[A]ll-around high-quality storytelling." Library Journal
