Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In his seventh-edition introduction, Strahan remarks that 2012 has been a period of self-examination for speculative fiction, as writers experimented with redefining the genre while remaining true to its principles, and publishers sought innovative ways to distribute content. Certainly this collection of 32 stories represents a stunning range of styles and themes from authors established and new, evidence of a vital field with engaged advocates. “Fade to White,” Valente’s ironic advertisement-fueled world of domestic bliss, is a multiple-award nominee. “Mono No Aware,” another award nominee by Liu, is a poignant tale about a man’s heroic sacrifice, informed by a significant game of Go. Many stories edge into horror, such as Hopkinson’s original take on werewolves in “The Easthound” or Link’s haunted space voyage in “Two Houses,” and some are wryly humorous, like Klages’ tale of sibling rivalry in “The Education of a Witch.” Some defy easy description, such as Johnson’s disquieting “Mantis Wives” or Gloss’ naturalist-inspired “The Grinnell Method.” Like previous anthologies, this is a must-read for fans of science fiction, fantasy, and short stories in general. --Krista Hutley
