Publisher details: "Long regarded as the premier annual collection of science fiction stories, Gardner Dozois's latest volume of The Year's Best Science Fiction continues this tradition of excellence with twenty-five representing the finest offerings in the field.

Among the gems included here are:

"Story of Your Life" by Ted Chiang, in which the story of alien contact and a very human drama merge beautifully
"The Island of the Immortals" by Ursula K. Le Guin, in which a brave traveler investigates the reasons why people shun the exotic island
"Approaching Perimelasma" by Geoffrey A. Landis, which boldly takes us into a black hole and through the stunning changes that ensue
"Taklamakan" by Bruce Sterling, a wildly inventive tale of future spies in a Lost World
"The Summer Isles" by Ian R. MacLeod, a moving novella reflecting an alternate history in which the Great War turned out a bit differently
Completing the collection are Dozois's insightful survey of the year in science fiction and a long list of Honorable Mentions.

With its explorations of outer space and inner space, with its examinations of what it means to be human today and tomorrow, and with its love of a good yarn, this volume remains the single best source for science fiction stories.
