The Year's Best Science Fiction: Thirtieth Annual Collection 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
An Insightful Collection of Science-Fiction Stories This vibrant collection of contemporary stories is sure to delight any science-fiction enthusiast. Science fiction has a profound ability to assess the present and predict the progression of society with alarming accuracy. I am especially interested in how newer works like these compare to classics—sure technology has changed over time, but the general concepts remain the same. This is a great collection of stories full of insight and thrills. On that note, if you are looking for an old school collection that is timeless, I highly recommend the collection entitled The Best of Phillip K. Dick.
