7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By B. PERKINS on June 22, 2006
Format: Paperback
This was the first Hugo collection since the death of Isaac Asimov, the series' original editor. With big shoes to fill, Connie Willis does a wonderful job of setting up the short story, novella, and novelette winners for 1989-91.

And the writing is quite good. This is one of my favorite collection of Hugo Winners, as it shows just how much the genre has matured. Stories like "Bears Discover Fire" by Terry Bisson and Ms. Willis' own "The Last of the Winnebagos" show an amazing, heart-wrenching depth. Others, like "Boobs" (Suzy McKee Charnas) and "Enter a Soldier. Later, Enter Another" reveal a fresh sense of humor.

Lois Bujold contributes a detective story to her Miles Vorkosigan series in "The Mountains of Mourning," Mike Resnick adds a pair of stories set in his much-celebrated neo-Kenyan settlement of Kirinyaga, and the alternative-worlds hypothesis of quantum physics is intriguingly explored by both Joe Haldeman ("The Hemingway Hoax") and George Alec Effinger ("Schrodinger's Kitten").
