The Year's Best Science Fiction: Thirtieth Annual Collection The Year's Best Science Fiction: Thirtieth Annual Collection edited by Gardner Dozois
reviewed by Sandra Scholes
Long running compilation books of the best science fiction writing don't come any better than this. The anthology has the very best SF authors explore new worlds with many different settings and outcomes and raises several questions about what is out there in the universe, the truths of aliens, and the reality of these tales as the award-winning authors write about them. Many well-known authors try to answer the questions that are on all our minds on the universe and those deep, dark parts.

The Year's Best Science Fiction: Twenty-Ninth Annual Collection The Year's Best Science Fiction: Twenty-Ninth Annual Collection edited by Gardner Dozois
reviewed by D. Douglas Fratz
Each year for almost three decades, the massive collection of science fiction stories in this series has been the most important book of the year for lovers of short SF. While the shorter best-of-the-year volumes provide a valuable complement, it is this one that provides the most comprehensive reading experience, and the best guide to where the field currently stands, and where it is likely going in the future, and the 29th volume is no exception.

One Million A.D. One Million A.D. edited by Gardner Dozois
reviewed by Peter D. Tillman
This is an anthology of six original novellas of the very far future, commissioned by the Science Fiction Book Club, in a departure from their usual reprints-only policy. The authors are all well-known: Robert Reed, Robert Silverberg, Nancy Kress, Alastair Reynolds, Charlie Stross, and Greg Egan. Plus a nice introduction by super-editor Gardner Dozois. A stellar lineup!

Galileo's Children Galileo's Children edited by Gardner Dozois
reviewed by Mario Guslandi
Theme anthologies are a challenge for fiction editors. If they seek original material they have to rely upon the authors' ability to properly cope with the subject, whereas if it's a reprint anthology they need a good memory and an extensive knowledge of the literature addressing that particular issue. No problems there for an experienced editor/writer, even when the topic (science vs. superstition), although quite intriguing, is far from being a simple one.

The Year's Best Science Fiction, Eighteenth Annual Collection The Year's Best Science Fiction, Eighteenth Annual Collection edited by Gardner Dozois
reviewed by Nick Gevers
It goes without saying that this is an eminently worthwhile book, one of SF's major institutions, now in its 18th volume. There are many highlights here, selected in spite of certain predictable editorial pitfalls (such as undue obeisance to established names, and an occasional seeming unawareness of how contrived and clotted data-dense Hard SF diction can become). Any year's output of short fiction is bound to be beyond ready summary; perhaps it is best to go by theme, tracing skeins of trend through it.

The Year's Best Science Fiction The Year's Best Science Fiction: 17th Annual Collection edited by Gardner Dozois
reviewed by Charlene Brusso
The selection here is broad ranging enough to satisfy nearly every reading taste, from the surreal originality of Dave Marusek's Sturgeon Award winner, "The Wedding Album," to the well-travelled terrain of Fred Pohl's HeeChee-based "Hatching The Phoenix," from the touching humanity of James Patrick Kelly's Hugo Award-winning novelette "1016 to 1" to the powerful chill of Richard Wadholm's "Green Tea."

The Good Old Stuff The Good Old Stuff edited by Gardner Dozois
reviewed by John O'Neill
The promising subtitle "Adventure SF in the Grand Tradition" was all that was necessary to conjure up images of purposeful men in cast iron spaceships, shouting orders to each other across a steamy engine room as mighty stellar drives propelled them into the dark void. Cool.

The Year's Best Science Fiction: Fifteenth Annual Collection The Year's Best Science Fiction: Fifteenth Annual Collection edited by Gardner Dozois
reviewed by Steven H Silver
This anthology continues to be the leader in the field. Dozois's insightful summary of the previous year's SF and an extensive recommended reading list on their own make this book worth buying.
