To enjoy this collection more: read Mr. Dozois' intro AFTER you read the story. 18 juillet 2014

Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Great Annual collection, I have all of them except the first, and so on. I have finished the first three selections, and the choices are excellent, as usual. (I am partial to hard sci-fi.) You know what this is- buy it, read it.

I write this review to say one thing: To enjoy the stories more, please read Mr. Dozois' short author intro AFTER you read the story. I love him and his choice, but in previous years my enjoyment of the stories was often lessened by his letting the cat out of the bag in those two or three sentences where he talks about the stories.

I will continue to buy these each year. Unconditionally.

the best of the annual anthologies as it provides an interesting ... 9 août 2014
Par Ronald E. Foore - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Being a guy in my 60's I miss the 'golden age' of SF with Heinlein, Asimov, Norton, etc. These stories were OK. I can't put my finger on what seemed to be missing. Maybe some contemporary SF authors are attempting to out-do each other with wild and creative ideas but my sense is that many times this evolves into disjointed and flimsy story lines. First and foremost, remember that you are first writing for a diverse readership so allow the reader to catch up to your ideas. Master the art of writing a novel This series is, in my opinion, the best of the annual anthologies as it provides an interesting and in depth look at all of the past year's obits of writers, awards, and issues pertaining to the genre. If you like SF then this book is a must for your collection.

A Long Month of Dozois 14 octobre 2014
Par John M. Ford - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This collection contains thirty-two science fiction stories published in 2013 and selected as the best by editor Gardner Dozois. It begins with the usual well-crafted Summation of the significant events and influences of the past year. The Honorable Mentions section at the end of the book is also valuable, giving readers a sense of what other significant fiction saw the light of day in 2013.

The stories are the main thing, though. Here are seven that stood out from the rest:

Paul McAuley's "Transitional Forms" introduces Ray Roberts, who guards the perimeter of a desert "hot zone" that contains mutated--and mutating--organisms. It is crucial that these organisms not be allowed to contaminate the surrounding ecosystem. Roy's job is complicated by organizations who want to obtain a sample and commercialize the mutant forms. One day Roy meets Janine and they end up having some beer.

In Allen Steele's "Martian Blood" a researcher arrives on Mars and arranges to meet some of the natives. He has some theories he has about Martian culture he wants to discuss with the Martians themselves. It makes sense to hire a local guide to help approach the proud and violent Martian tribesmen. Fortunately he finds a guide who grasps the unique nature of his mission.

In Aliette de Bodard's "The Waiting Stars" we join a deep space mission to recover a lost warship and, perhaps, its crew. Mission success is complicated by how embedded one of the warship's crew has become in the culture of her captors.

Nancy Kress's "One" is one of those "inner space" stories. Following his recovery from a serious accident, Zack discovers that he has an unusual mental ability. As the story unfolds, he strives to understand and control it. This makes him somewhat difficult to live with.

Melissa Scott's "Finders" is about a salvage operation in a remote region of our solar system. The Carabossa's crew speculates that a recently-located high-tech artifact has been undervalued by those who discovered it. They take a chance to recover enough advanced technology from it to get them out of debt and allow them to stake out a better future. The odds are good. In the beginning, that is.

Brendan DuBois's "Hard Stars" follows a squad of American security personnel as they seek a safe haven from swarms of lethal drones. Their customary tools are unavailable because of the drones' abilities to detect and destroy any kind of electronic activity. The human element becomes the key to success.

James Patrick Kelly's "The Promise of Space" is my favorite story in this year's collection. It is built from transcripts of an ongoing conversation between a hospital patient and his visitor. It becomes clear that they have a certain shared history.

This is one of those good-but-not-great collections. I doubt this is due to any lessening of the Dozois editorial talent, so I'll conclude that 2013 must have been a thinner-than-usual year for short SF. I'm looking forward to the possibility that 2014 will turn out a little better.

always excellent and Mr 27 septembre 2014
Par Russell Newsom - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I read this every year; always excellent and Mr. Dozois deserves thanks and praise. Of late however, a problem: needs better copy editing! Some of the manuscript errors reach the point of confusing the reader, rather beyond multiple spellings of character names. The stories are excellent and save me from much searching for gold amidst dross. These are mostly all gold.

I have collected these from the beginning of the series. I have never been disappointed by the content. That is not to say I love every single story I read, but for me Dozois is hitting about 80%. Some of my favorite stories of all time are in these collections. Dozois must work day and night to read enough material to produce this series.
