REVIEWS

Praise for The Year's Best Science Fiction: Twenty-Fourth Annual Collection

“For a broad and eclectic overview of SF and its varieties, Dozois’s huge anthology remains essential.”—Gary K. Wolf, LOCUS

“Gardner Dozois is of course the granddaddy of the annual anthology . . . His housebrick of a collection is the closest thing the field has to a single ‘canon-forming’ volume.”—Strange Horizons magazine
