    Review quote
    "Gardner Dozois's Year's Best Science Fiction anthology, an annual volume of gigantic size and awesome range, has after twenty years become a wondrous trove of great stories and an archive that has immeasurable historical significance. Now Dozois has selected the best of the best."- Robert Silverberg "If a science fiction fan from 1984 chanced to stumble into a time warp and pop up in the here and now, and wanted to know what had been happening in his favorite genre in the last twenty years, all you'd need to do was hand him a copy of Gardner Dozois's "Best of the Best." This is two decades of the best that science fiction has to offer, chosen by the most respected editor in the field...a copy belongs on the shelf of every SF reader."- George R. R. Martin, bestselling author of "A Game of Thrones" "The short story is the heart of science fiction, and editor Gardner Dozois understands more about the short story and about science fiction than anybody else, which is what's made this series so terrific! But now, to have Gardner's picks for "The Best of the Best" collected all in one volume is beyond terrific! It'll make nonreaders of science fiction realize why the genre has so many devoted fans, and the readers of science fiction hyperventilate. This is the cream of the cream of the crop! And all in one place! I cannot wait to read it!"- Connie Willis, winner of many Hugo and Nebula awards "For more than a quarter century, Gardner Dozois's "TheYear's Best Science Fiction" has defined the field. It is the most important anthology, not only annually but overall."- Charles N. Brown, publisher of "Locus Magazine" "The title says it all. If you like science fiction, you need this book! Gardner Dozois is the savviest editor alive, and his picks are brilliant, thought-provoking, and immensely entertaining. Sell your grandmother if you must, but buy this book!"- Michael Swanwick, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, and The
