Review quote

"The best anthology I have read in a while, this is great for keeping up with what is going on in the worlds of fantasy and horror, or simply as a collection of fine stories."--The Zone "This is the anthology to pick up every year if you want to read the best short fiction from the previous year and get overviews of the best fiction, non-fiction, films and video, anime, and music that was released in that year."--Green Man Review "Long lived and always outstanding." --"Science Fiction Chronicle" "A standard that... will be the one to beat in the future." --"Locus" Treasures abound here." --"Minneapolis Star Tribune"" ""You can't improve on the "best," but as the editors of this landmark anthology series show in its most recent volume, you can find fresh new angles from which to present it.. . . The usual generous survey essays only enhance the volume's reputation as indispensable for the year.""--Publishers Weekly"show more
