"[The] Year's Best Fantasy series is rapidly becoming a welcome shelfmate to the current grandfather of 'year's best' series, the Windling/Datlow Year's Best Fantasy and Horror." "
&mdashGreen Man Review"

“The seventh annual fantasy anthology from the renowned husband-and-wife editing team of Hartwell and Cramer is arguably the strongest and most thematically diverse.
