"Anyone interested in contemporary short sf should own this volume"
---Washington Post Book World
"All of the stories in the collection are thought-provoking and well-written, succeeding on their own as stories quite apart from the genre label."
---Arizona Daily Star
"This anthology represents contemporary SF at its very best. . . . There's little doubt that Dozois is to the 1980s and 1990s what John W. Campbell Jr., was to the 1940s and 1950s---the finest editor in the world of short SF."
"For anyone interested in sf short stories, this is the best---indeed, the only---place to start."
