    Shadows vs Rainbows part 2!

    The chattering stops and it zooms onto Jackson and DeathStiker.
    <p>Jackson: "Welcome to the what is it? Oh yea second battle of the Rainbow Factory vs Shadow Factory. Dont worry about the bosses they're ok. Who are the Fighters Deathstriker?"
    <p>Deathstriker: "We have drumroll plz?"
    <p>GG: *Throws drumsticks at them.* "NO!"
    <p>Jackson:This battle has been requested twice and btw people can be used more than once but not after when they had a battle. Nitro vs Woodentoaster!
    <p>Nitro shoots fire right at WoodenToaster jukes it and flies right at Nitro and kicked his face.
    <p>WoodenToaster trys again but is hit by fire. Nitro flies around WoodenToaster at hyper speed and shoves his hoof in his mouth but WT slices Nitro's hoof with a dagger and Nitro falls to the ground and WT stomps on his stomach. Nitro hoofs WT in the face while his hoof was on fire. WT gets up but meet a log to the head.
    <p>Jackson: Well that was quick I think WoodenToaster is alright.
    <p>DeathStriker:Well folks we cant do The same people vs each other again. So choose from the list. SEE YA AND HAPPY GRINDING AND DRAINING.

    This is a good one and a must for SF lovers

    This SF Years best is one of the best, David and KAtheren have put out in the past 3 years. I did not like last year, but this is good stuff. All stories were good Nancy Kress, Ballantino, Bear , but hold your breath until you get to the end. A master writer but one who claims Genre is a librarian's problem. He is not known to write SF, nevertheless a good writer is a good writer in any context. Rick Moody is the name and the story is 'Albertine Notes' what an incredible Time-Travel story, totaly different from anything else i have ever read. Has similarities to 'Vanilla Skies' i think. Enjoy it, I did. Pay special attention to the Argentinian writer who just got translated after 20 years. She is top of the line, her story in a way similar to the famous classic 'Forbidden Planet', though more romantic, well she is a woman after all so romance is got to be there.
