Nebula Awards 33: The year's best SF and fantasy chosen by the Science-fiction and Fantasy Writers of. .

Nebula Awards 33: The year's best SF and fantasy chosen by the Science-fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (Nebula Awards Showcase). The fiction is wonderful, from the breezy if forgettable "DaVinci Rising" to the earthy, cerebral yet wrenching "A Birthday", the writing is still as good as Science Fiction ever was, which is to say it's pretty terrific. But please, enter more fiction and cut out some essays! If I want essays, I'll hunt them down at a library (I doubt that I'd spend a great deal of money to read this many of them). The point of sci-fi is to read the stories.

Every reader - and I guess every writer - has some blind spots, and I guess this book may be one of mine. I just don't think "32" was a good year for science fiction. Most of the stories seem average at best. Nothing is particularly distinguished in this book. I enjoyed the essays in most Nebula Awards annual books and even the essays in this one don't seem all that thoughtful. (Writers complaining and whining and groaning...etc.) Of course some years are better than others and this seems like one of those down years. Suggest the reader try other years first before getting this collection.

The fiction is wonderful, from the breezy if forgettable "DaVinci Rising" to the earthy, cerebral yet wrenching "A Birthday", the writing is still as good as Science Fiction ever was, which is to say it's pretty terrific. But please, enter more fiction and cut out some essays! If I want essays, I'll hunt them down at a library (I doubt that I'd spend a great deal of money to read this many of them). The point of sci-fi is to read the stories. Some background on the authors and the stories is useful and enjoyable, and the balance is difficult to find, but this volume leaves you aching for more stories, which isn't altogether a bad thing (and may be the intent). Once you're there, though, don't miss the stories. Would you believe a near-future story on abortion that pulls no punches yet leaves you wondering just where the author is coming from? How about an alternate history that makes you believe that a Balkanized America was not only possible, but likely? How about a "protective" universe that kills those that get too close to the truth? You gotta buy this book, you'll like it a lot -- despite all the non-fiction, not because of it, because the fiction is that good. You'll wonder why you don't read more of this.

I am a great fan of anthologies and science fiction short stories generally.
That said, I am sad to say that this book disappointed me more than any other book in recent memory. There was no discernable evidence of science in any of these science fiction stories. In most there was very little evidence of a story line.
Probably the best description of my opinion is that I gave this book away before my wife could read it so she wouldn't know what I had bought.
