Hugo Award-winning editor Gardner Dozois' annual anthology has long been considered the standard by which other best-of-the-year SF collections are judged. After two decades' worth of superlative science fiction, Dozois now presents a retrospective compilation culling from the last 20 years. Here under one banner is some of the finest work by the genre's leading authors, with a star-studded list of contributors that features among others: Stephen Baxter, Greg Bear, William Gibson, Terry Bisson, Greg Egan, Ursula K. Le Guin, Robert Reed, Robert Silverberg, Bruce Sterling, Charles Stross, Michael Swanwick, and Gene Wolfe.A number of the selections are now considered classics. Some notable stories include: Blood Music, Greg Bear's Hugo-winning exploration of nanotechnology. Bears Discover Fire, Terry Bisson's tongue-in-cheek consideration of future ursine evolution. The Left Hand of Darkness, Ursula K. Le Guin's coming-of-age SF tale. The Winter Market, in which William Gibson returns to the subject that made him a cultural icon, cyberpunk. With work spanning two decades, this is the most significant science fiction short story anthology published in years.
