Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Chosen by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America in 2002, this slim anthology includes the four Nebula Award winners in the categories of short story, novelette, novella and novel (represented by an extract), plus a couple of runners-up (James Patrick Kelly's "Undone" and Mike Resnick's "The Elephants on Neptune"), an introduction by editor Kress, a list of nominees, a few brief essays and a list of past winners. While it's good to have the Nebula winners for a given year gathered in one place, some readers might wonder whether there's enough content here to justify such a book. On balance, the answer is yes, if only because of the unlikely juxtapositions. It's fascinating to watch Jack Williamson's expansive, far-future speculation, "The Ultimate Earth," rubbing shoulders with Kelly Link's tight, nervous little maybe-ghost story, "Louise's Ghost." It's also amusing to imagine how Mike Resnick's sardonic elephants from Neptune would wreak havoc in Catherine Asaro's SF retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" (The Quantum Rose). In short, the variety of taste shown by the SFFWA continues to be striking and heartening. (Apr. 1) Forecast: This anthology series is finding a niche for itself by not competing with the two major best-of-the-year collections-Gardner Dozois's mammoth assembly that favors literary experimentation and David Hartwell's relatively compact selection of more traditional SF. Still, the two big anthologies are better bargains. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
KLIATT
Editor Kress gathers together the 2001 (not 2003, as the title might suggest) Nebula Award-winning short story, novella and novelette, as well as an excerpt from the Nebula-winning novel and the two winners of the Rhysling SF Poetry Award, a runner-up for best novelette and some general remarks on the genre by well-known SF writers. It's nice to have all the winners in one place, but since most of these stories will end up in the annual "best of..." collections, it isn't an essential purchase. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2003, Penguin Putnam, Roc, 230p., Root

    For fans of sci-fi

    Though interesting and fun to see what is contained inside this volume, there is no question that this anthology is for science fiction diehards. The collection includes the 2001 winners of the Nebulas in four basic categories: Best Novel (an extract from ¿The Quantum Rose¿ by Catherine Asaro); Best Novella (¿The Ultimate Earth¿ by Jack Williamson); Best Novelette (¿Louise¿s Ghost¿ by Kelly Link); and Best Short Story (¿The Cure for Everything¿ by Severna Park). Additionally two runner-ups (Best Short Story: ¿The Elephants on Neptune¿ by Mike Resnick; and Best Novelette: ¿Undone¿ by James Patrick Kelly). A fifth category, Best Script lists the winners. The five categories are clearly defined with the four print ones based on number of words. Other information about the awards including a complete list of nominees makes for an entertaining time for those who appreciate the vastness of the genre............ Harriet Klausner
