I’m an avid reader. I’ll pick up anything from a short story to an epic novel and I enjoy many different genres. I read everything from mysteries and thrillers to horror and fantasy. But science-fiction has always been my favorite.
I’m Currently reading The Year’s Best Science Fiction: Thirtieth Annual Collection edited by Gardner Dozois. There are several excellent science fiction anthologies and collections published each year, but I’ve been reading Gardner’s collection for over a decade. Each year he assembles a selection of stories from the best and brightest in speculative fiction. The stories vary in length from a few pages to multi-chapter novella.
Gardner Dozois is an award-winning editor and has been inducted to the science fiction Hall of Fame. Both his talent as an editor and his passion for speculative fiction contribute to the continued success of this particular annual collection. This collection is more focused than some of the other available anthologies, which include both science fiction and fantasy. Science fiction covers so much ground and asks so many questions that you could easily fill multiple volumes without including fantasy and other genres. This is one reason why this collection is an annual must buy for me.
If you’re a fan of science fiction and you looking for an assortment of excellent stories or you just prefer reading short stories instead of novels. I highly recommend The Year’s Best Science Fiction: Thirtieth Annual Collection Available from Amazon.com in paperback or Kindle e-book format.
