This is a fine assortment of science fiction and fantasy stories from authors you may have read, and others not as familiar. As usual in this series, each story is preceded by a short bio of the author. So, you'll learn that Rachael Swirsky is a graduate of the University of Iowa, famous for its writing program. Her story "Marry the Sun" is amusing and clever in the way it combines the mundane of love relationships that don't quite work out with Greek mythology, and add in a grad student of astronomy for the scientific twist. Elizabeth Bear's story of aliens manages to create an alternate timeline in modern history, poke at our societal flaws and be puzzling and frightening, all in the space of a few pages. Lots of treats in this anthology, with a great introduction by editor Jonathan Strahan, discussing what is sci fi today, and current trends.
