Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Veteran editor Dozois, 15-time Hugo winner, offers 30 stories, several of them Hugo-nominated. The table of contents is dominated by familiar names like Michael Swanwick and Greg Egan, but occasionally leavened with relative newcomers like Hannu Rajaniemi and more obscure authors like James Alan Gardner. Settings range from the present-day (Nancy Kress's The Erdmann Nexus) to the distant future (Ian McDonald's The Tear) and alternate history (Aliete de Bodard's Butterfly, Falling at Dawn). Similarly the moods range from relatively upbeat (Dominic Green's Shining Armour) to pessimistic (Swanwick's From Babel's Fallen Glory We Fled). In some entries the SF elements appear to be almost an afterthought, but most earn their inclusion. Dozois also provides short biographies, a detailed overview of the year in SF and a lengthy list of honorable mentions. This is a worthy addition to a venerable series. (July)

Review

“This is a worthy addition to a venerable series.” ―Publishers Weekly

“The 25th installment of editor extraordinaire Dozois's annual collection packs a wallop.” ―Publishers Weekly

“For more than a quarter century, Gardner Dozois's THE BEST SCIENCE FICTION OF THE YEAR [25th Annual Collection] has defined the field. It is the most important anthology, not only annually, but overall.” ―Charles N. Brown, publisher of Locus Magazine
