Here’s the full review, from the November 15th issue:
In “Old Paint,” Megan Lindholm illustrates the bond between people and their “cars,” while Bruce Sterling’s “The Peak of Eternal Light” explores the necessarily formal bonds between genders in a far-future colony inside the planet Mercury. Together with 26 other short (or short short) stories by today’s best sf writers, award-winning editor Hartwell’s latest entry in his popular series presents a feast of fine writing, scintillating thoughts, and intriguing tales, all grounded in scientific possibilities.
One of the best collections of the year, without a weak tale in its list, this is highly recommended for fans of the short story and of sf in general.
Year’s Best SF 18 will be published on December 10th.
