I love this anthology series. If you're on the prowl to find some new sci-fi authors or simply enjoy short fiction, this is an excellent place to turn. If you're deeply interested in what's happening in the industry itself, the summation at the beginning gives a nice overview of the past year including other sources for short work. A word of advice if you care about spoilers or allowing stories to unveil themselves in their own time, read the introductory paragraphs after you finish the story. ( )

I don’t read nearly as much science fiction as I used to, my tastes having turned more toward the mystery genre in recent years, but one thing that I always make sure to buy each year is the volume of science fiction short stories and novellas edited by Gardner Dozois. This is the 33rd straight year that he has edited this outstanding anthology, and as always he has chosen some of the best work in the field. As ever with such a collection, my favourites are not necessarily the favourites of others, but anyone who is interested in this genre is going to find at least some stories in this book that they will love. In addition to excellent work by such authors as Nancy Kress, Paolo Bacigalupi, Allen M. Steele, Ian McDonald, Kelly Link, Aliette de Bodard and Eleanor Arnason (to name just a few), Dozois also provides a summation of the previous year in terms of publishing, both with respect to publishing houses, magazines, semi-prozines and sales, as well as an extensive obituary list and a list of “honorable mentions.” If you are interested in speculative fiction in short(ish - some stories here are quite long) form, this is the single most essential volume to read. Very highly recommended! ( )
