Hugo Award-winning editor Gardner Dozois’ annual anthology has long been considered the standard by which other best-of-the-year SF collections are judged. After two decades’ worth of superlative science fiction, Dozois now presents a retrospective compilation culling from the last 20 years. Here under one banner is some of the finest work by the genre's leading authors, with a star-studded list of contributors that features among others: Stephen Baxter, Greg Bear, William Gibson, Terry Bisson, Greg Egan, Ursula K. Le Guin, Robert Reed, Robert Silverberg, Bruce Sterling , Charles Stross, Michael Swanwick, Gene Wolfe. A number of the selections are now considered classics. Some notable stories include: ‘Blood Music’, Greg Bear's Hugo-winning exploration of nanotechnology. ‘Bears Discover Fire’, Terry Bisson's tongue-in-cheek consideration of future ursine evolution. ‘The Left Hand of Darkness’, Ursula K. Le Guin’s coming-of-age SF tale. ‘The Winter Market’, in which William Gibson returns to the subject that made him a cultural icon, cyberpunk. With work spanning two decades, this is the most significant science fiction short story anthology published in years.

Review:

The closest thing the field has to a single 'canon-forming' volume. (Strange Horizons)

Dozois has gathered together a stunning array of the best in shorter SF. (Publishers Weekly)

There is no one better qualified to edit this book. If Gardner Dozois says these are the best of the best, you can bet the farm on it. (Mike Resnick)

The brilliant from the brilliant (SFCrowsnet.co.uk)
