Printed in the United States of America. nued to talk about the Death of Science Fiction throughout 2002 (some of them with ill-disguised longing), the unpalatable fact (for them) is that science fiction didn’t die this year, and doesn’t even look particularly sick. In fact, sales for many genre titles were brisk, and not only were there not fewer books published this year than last, several new book lines were added that swelled the total and are going to swell it more next year (and this isn’t even counting print-on-demand titles and books sold as electronic downloads from internet Web sites, things much.

Worla
1. "New Light on the Drake Equations"...How do you take a story about a hermit sitting on a mountain waiting for aliens to contact him, and make it interesting? Not this way. Zzzz
2. "More Adventures on Other Planets"...Depressed and unpleasant scientist gets more depressed and unpleasant on a big virtual reality project. Turn the page, pass the Prozac. D
3. "On K2 with Kankaredes"...Mildly interesting man vs. nature yarn about mountaineers who let a giant alien bug tag along on a tough climb. C
4. Stories 4-8 too silly, confusing, boring, and/or unoriginal for me. Read at your own risk.
5. "The Chief Designer"...More fact than fiction, a mesmerizing and poignant account of the man who launched the Soviet space program. Top-flight character development. A+
6. "Neutrino Drag"...Whimsical, fast paced story set in San Diego features two unforgettable aliens. B
7. "Glacial"...Zillions of worms tunnel innocently through ice on a distant planet...or do they?? Only their mad scientist knows for sure. This one has it all: brilliant concept, solid characters, suspenseful plot. A+
8. "The Days Between"...Nightmarish space travel story marred only by its ultimate pointlessness. C
9. "One-Horse Town"...Well written, snappy, and literally multi-dimensional view of the Trojan War. A
10. "Moby Quilt"...Weird life in an alien ocean. Moves at the speed of mud. "Solaris" it's not. Zzzz
11. "Raven Dream"...Bittersweet, world-within-a-world story of loss and redemption. C
12. "Undone"...Maybe if I were smart enough to follow this convoluted story about time travel and shape shifting...no, I still wouldn't like it. D
13. "The Real Thing"...Near-in-the-future mogul (suspiciously reminiscent of Bill Gates) pollutes the Internet with diabolical, reality-bending commercialism. Gimme that old time Linux! Thematically heavy-handed, but cleverly written. B
14. "Interview: On Any Given Day"...Think they have problems now? Wait until you catch this terrifying glimpse of what's in store for the next batch of American teenagers. B
15. "Isabel of the Fall"...The Middle Ages make a comeback way in the future. Ingenious science blends surprisingly well with gloomy, gothic fable thick with religious overtones. B
16. "Into Greenwood"...Mind-blowing concept: sentient trees! Actually this spellbinding story is chock-full of great ideas. Convincing science and fascinating characters combine to create a totally believable --yet utterly alien--world. A+
17. "Know How, Can Do"...What does it mean to be human? What is love? What are the implications of genetic engineering on our very souls? Amusing story about the world's smartest petri dish packs a philosophical wallop! A
18. "Russian Vine"...Aliens gain upper hand on Earth by making humans illiterate. Dubious premise supported by shaky explanations and flimsy plot. D
19. "The Two Dicks"...Alternate history story has a sweaty Philip K. Dick struggling to escape a confusing, sinister, and nightmarish reality. Hey-just like one of his characters! Plus, there's another notable Dick in the mix that we just don't hear from enough these days. A
20. "May Be Some Time"...Heroic British explorer from 1912 gets frozen in Antarctica and defrosted in 2045 NYC. Unfortunately, not much happens after that. However: the story is worth reading, believe it or not, because of the author's brilliant use of old-time British idiom. B
21. "Marcher"...This one must have sneaked in while Mr. Dozios was on break. Read at your own risk.
22. "The Human Front"...Promising alternate history set in World War III Scotland takes a turn for the absurd three-quarters of the way through. They should have called it a book two stories ago. D

This anthology is slightly better than some of the more harrowing and frustrating collections that had been compiled by Mr Dozois in the previous years. "Glacial" was good. "On K2 with Kankaredas" was cute. But some of the other unbelievably boring stuff that is now-a-days celebrated as cerebral sci-fi dragged the anthology down.
Dream
As always a great book. I love them all (so far!). The seller delivered as promised and the book was in perfect condition, even better than seller said! I ordered another one (18th) and I haven't gotten that one yet but I've had time to read this one fully! The other selller will not be getting a good review, lol.
Jorius
This is my favorite book to buy each year. Mr. Dozois puts together a great collection. I've been reading it for the last 10 years and am now purchasing the ones I don't have.
Cktiell
Great book!
Thordira
Great stories for any sci-fi fan, only a couple are average.
Gigafish
This is probably one of the best selection of science fiction short stories. Gardener Dozois have experience and seems to find hidden treasure year after year
Have not read yet. Multiple authors for different short stories. Bought because I like the editor and have other annual editions.
