Comments The Year's Best Science Fiction: Twenty-Second Annual Collection

  • Rob

    What is there to say about a Dozois collection? Good stories, good way to discover new authors (and publishers). It's your usual mixed bag of good and great stories, running the gamut to taste. Individual ratings and notes:Includes:(1) "Inappropriate Behaviour" by Pat Murphy: ★★★★(2) "Start the Clock" by Benjamin Rosenbaum: ★★★★(3) "The Third Party" by David Moles: ★★★➟ ½ extra star for concept.(4) "The Voluntary State" by Christopher Rowe: ★★★➟ I think I liked w [...]

    [Commentary on individual stories as I read them]Inappropriate Behavior (novelette) by Pat MurphyThat one needs a bit of time to sink in - it's all about failures to communicate on so many different levels, not only the obvious one. Makes me want to read more by Murphy.Start the Clock (shortstory) by Benjamin RosenbaumThat was new and different and making you think. Yes.The Third Party (novelette) by David MolesAmbitious in places but it does not really work.The Voluntary State (novelette) by Ch [...]


  • Christy

    I picked this book up at Half Price Books a couple of weeks ago, not having read any of this series of collections before. I'm so glad I did. This is a wonderful way to find great short science fiction. I have subscriptions to Fantasy & Science Fiction, Asimov's, and Analog, which brings lots of good short SF to my door, but this introduces lots of fiction that I would not be able to find on my own. Some favorites from this collection: "The People of Sand and Slag" by Paolo Bacigalupi, "Scou [...]


  • Timons Esaias

    These Dozois collections are always solid. Oh, yeah, there are sometimes one, maybe two stories that don't appeal to my taste at all, but they aren't really clunkers. I strongly recommend that someone trying to learn a lot about SF in a short time (especially how to write it) should skip the "greatest novels" list and read a dozen of these annual Year's Best anthologies. I'm catching up on a few that I didn't crack open in the first decade of this century, and the stories in this one are entirel [...]


  • Robert Hepple

    Published in 2005, The Mammoth Book of the Best New SF 18 is an anthology of 28 short stories all originally published in the UK in 2004. Note that this book is published stateside under a different title, as the series has been running for some years longer. The stories vary from an ultra-short 3 pages in length to a more substantial 74 page novella. All are well written, but the inevitable variations in style means that personal tastes will vary.


  • Sorin Craciun

    As usual you find different genre of SF among the included stories in the anthology:1. Inappropriate Behavior by Pat Murphy: ****2. Start the Clock by Benjamin Rosenbaum: ****3. The Third Party by David Moles: ***4. The Voluntary State by Christopher Rowe: ****5. Shiva in Shadow by Nancy Kress: ****6. The People of Sand and Slag by Paolo Bacigalupi: ****7. The Clapping Hands of God by Michael F. Flynn: ***8. Tourism by M. John Harrison: ***9. Scout's Honor by Terry Bisson: ****10. Men are Troubl [...]


  • Nicholas Whyte

    This came out in 2005, the year of the Glasgow Worldcon, and I guess that because I felt I had thoroughly chewed over that year's short fiction in the Hugo process I didn't urgently need to read this. That was wrong: Dozois has as ever pulled together an excellent set of stories, full of variety of approach and length. As noted below, I had read only the few stories which got shortlisted for the major awards, and one other which I had seen in its original anthology. Of the stories new to me, the [...]


  • James

    every single one of these collections is essential reading for true fans of science fiction short stories each lengthy volume has a stellar array of all mini-genres and areas of powerfully influential science fiction: hard science, speculative, steampunk, alien invasions, apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic, space opera, fantasy, aliens, monsters, horror-ish, space travel, time travel, eco-science, evolutionary, pre-historic, parallel universes, extraterrestrials in each successive volume in the series [...]


  • Bronwyn

    My fiance recommended that I check out these anthologies of Science Fiction when I was bemoaning the lack of new authors to check out. I am reluctant to spend money (and time) on new authors if I'm not reasonably sure I'm going to enjoy reading it, so I went to the library and checked out this anthology. It was excellent- out of the entire book (which is sizable), there were only 1 or 2 stories that I wasn't crazy about, and a few more that I liked but wasn't a fan of the author's style. I would [...]


  • Lord Humungus

    Almost like the heyday of great SF, this is yet another collection with lots of fantastic stories. There are great pieces by David Moles, Bisson, Albert Cowdrey, Daniel Abraham, Reed, and Paul Melko. Also some good stories by Paty Murphy, Vandana Singh and Colin P Davies.However my favorites include "The Voluntary State" by Christopher Rowe, "Mayflower II" by Stephen Baxter, and the hilarious Company story "Mother Aegypt" by Kage Baker. I loved Kage Baker's story so much, I went and bought sever [...]


  • Jeff Daly

    I listened to the audiobook version, read by Madelyn Buzzard. Overall I give it 3/5 stars. I was disappointed with the work in general. I was not fond of the reader, so maybe that cast a shadow over my ratings. There were 5 I liked enough that I would give them 4/5 stars individually: "Inappropriate Behavior" by Pat Murphy "Ten Sigmas" by Paul Melko "Men Are Trouble" by James Patrick Kelly "The Garden: A Hwarhath Science Fictional Romance" by Eleanor Arnason "Leviathan Wept" by Daniel Abrahamsta [...]


  • Florin Constantinescu

    Clearly 2004 must've been one of the best years ever in short science fiction.This is one of the best retrospective anthologies ever, if not one of the best anthologies period.Standouts were the Moles, the Bacigalupi, the Flynn, the Baker, the Baxter, the DuBois, the Reed, the Cambias, the Arnason, the Hamilton, and the Williams.Not only this was the largest number of standouts in any anthology I have read, the remaining stories were of pretty high level, with only one or two under-average ones. [...]


  • Ian

    I've read several of these collections and none of them completely disappointed, but this one had by far the highest average quality of stories. Inappropriate behavior is an excellent use of sci-fi as a lens for abnormal but sympathetic characters, House of Sand and Slag is a dark but beautiful story that highlights the importance of empathy in a world where cruelty rules, and oh so many other great stories in this anthology, Id recommend it to anybody that wants a taste of good contemporary sci [...]


  • Dan

    Loaned to me by a friend whose opinion I trust. But this thing is huge! I skipped around in it. That's the upside of collections, I guess. It did remind me of the excitement I had as a teen-ager, waiting for the next edition of the SF magazines to come out. Enough so that I have subscribed to the e-book version of Analog.


  • Mike S

    If you like science fiction you will not be disappointed by this book, there are several really great stories, I looked forward to reading this book during the work week, and reserved 30 to 60 min's per night to it, so I could take my time and really savor it. This is a really great collection. If I ever own a house that has a library I plan on buying every volume in this collection.


  • Stephen Dorneman

    Another solid collection from Dozois, although I believe only a few of these stories will stay with me for very long - but I'm sure Paul Melko's "Ten Sigmas," Caitlin Kiernan's "Riding the White Bull," James Patrick Kelly's "Men Are Trouble," and Pat Murphy's "Inappropriate Behavior" all will.


  • John Devlin

    If you read one sci-fi book a year, this is the one. Always stories of high caliber with a few tossed in that will keep you thinking weeks later, not to mention the collection is a primer for what science and technology everyone will be talking about five to ten years from now.


  • Streator Johnson

    As always, the best annual collection of sci-fi stories anywhere!


  • Anthony

    The Last of the stories I read was, Investments, by Walter John Williams.An excellent novella telling a story of a complex - both socially, and politically - story of business and family.


  • DeAnne

    Gardener always puts together a good mix of stories, and this one is no exception. Plus, this one has a funny story from my mefi buddy John Aegarda relatively unknown but wonderful talent.


  • Paul Bryant

    Best so far :The People of Sand and Slag (what a bad title! what a great story!), Bacigalupi2/28


  • Ankit Lal

    A respectable collection.


  • Craig

    Always a very good read. About 2/3 of the stories are 4* plus.


  • Phyllis
