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.
