My copy of this volume is without it’s dust-jacket and is in a relatively sorry state, but it’s absolutely readable, and I’m starting to read it now! (Jan 2023) Edited just by Ted Dikty, his length review of The Science-Fiction Year is an intriguing read – if you read it after a few beers of glasses of wine you might […] The post The Best Science Fiction Stories and Novels : 1955 (ed T.E.

At the time of writing (April 2022) I haven’t seen a print version for Horton’s 2020 Edition which is long overdue, and Amazon currently is showing an Aug 2022 publication date for Kindle version of the 2021 Edition with no mention of a paperback version. Horton has helpfully posted a near-complete ToC for the 2021 edition (he notes ones final […] The post The Year’s Best Science Fiction & Fantasy 2021 Edition (ed Rich Horton, Prime Books 2022) first appeared on Best SF ..read more

I do get a steady drip-drip of email requests to review items on Best SF. Frustratingly, they’re invariably unpublished authors with a horror/splatterpunk/crime/fantasy novel to promote, who haven’t taken a moment to check the focus of this website. A few days ago I did get a nice, personalised request to see if I would be interested in reviewing a copy […] The post L.

A handsome book, my copy printed over here in the UK by Amazon. I’d like to think my online order triggered a single print-run just for me, but I’m guessing probably not. It’s on my ‘to be read’ bookshelf. I’ll fill in the reviews as I read the stories, but for the moment, here are the contents : We start […] The post Nebula Awards Showcase 55 ed Catherynne M.

The sixth volume in what is now the longest-running current Year’s Best SF anthology. Due out in deadtree format just before Christmas Day – that’s one of *my* christmas presents sorted out then! Strahan has published the ToC online, and I’ll put this here for the moment. 21 out of 32 author names ‘ring a bell/sound a gong’ with me.

The second volume in Strahan’s new all-SF anthology. At the time of writing the paperback version is several weeks off being published, but as a ToC (in author name order) is available, I’ve popped that in here for the moment. 17 of the 26 authors are known to me, and by the power of Math that means 9 of the […] The post The Year’s Best Science Fiction, Vol. 2 (ed Jonathan Strahan, Saga Press 2021) first appeared on Best SF ..read more
