Many wonderful science fiction short stories were published in 2008. Based on their in-depth knowledge of the genre, David Hartwell and Kathryn Cramer have been selecting the most-worthy science fiction short stories for inclusion in their yearly anthology for the prior 13 years. The Year's Best SF 14 is the compendium of their choices for 2008. These stories are for the science fiction fan, who enjoys venturing out of this world, this time, this universe, but not out of logic or comprehension. From official release/information:
Product Description: Unique visions and astonishments—new stories by: Tobias S. Buckell and Karl Schroeder; Cory Doctorow; Neil Gaiman; Kathleen Ann Goonan; Alastair Reynolds; and Michael Swanwick.
Last year's best short-form SF—selected by acclaimed, award-winning editors and anthologists David G. Hartwell and Kathryn Cramer—offers stunning new extrapolations on what awaits humankind beyond the next dawn. The art of the story is explored boldly and provocatively in this powerful new collection of Year's Best speculative fiction.
