The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year:
(Not to be confused with, "The Year's Best Science Fiction and Fantasy" -- which is hardly comparable)
• Highly Original
• Captivating Prose, Beautifully Written
• Thought Provoking
• Genuine, Clever
• And All Around Enjoyable.
I absolutely love this anthology. That's coming from---not just a very, VERY particular reader, but---someone who typically does not enjoy short fiction. This series is great for avid fans of the genre(s), and those looking to it for the first time.
Oh and these editions are published on really high-quality paper, as well.
Strahan puts together all the best, most engaging, fascinating, and [literally] awesome award winning pieces from each year. What you see is exactly* what you get. I've been collecting these for years, and will continue to do so unless or until there are no more to be had (which is something I both doubt and dread in equal parts).
'Not sure how relevant this is as well, but, I feel I should also note that it doesn't matter which volume you might decide to pick up first. They're just episodic, stand alone short stories; so you wouldn't be missing out on anything by reading them non-sequentially.
That being said, Volumes No. 7 & 3 have been my favorite thus far.
Alright well I'll quit slobbering allover the place.
Bottom line: go ahead and grab one of these collections and get lost in the realms of wonder and intrigue for a while -- you won't regret it.
