"An almost unheard-of diversity of tales absolutely sing in this superlative anthology..." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review
"If these annual best-of anthologies indicate where speculative
fiction is heading, readers should be excited for the future of the
genre...These are stories to take your breath away, to make you
laugh, to bring you to despair, to give you hope, to creep you out,
and even to break your heart...all are interesting, vibrant, and
worthy." -- Booklist, starred review
