Without question, I really think this is the best genre anthology of the year. Best American Fantasy did something more ambitious than any of the others could even dare. It might have single-handedly disproved the notion of the ‘SF ghetto’. You’ll find stories from McSweeney’s, the New Yorker, Zoetrope All-Story, alongside those of Analog. Yeah it’s a mixed bag (some of these like The Whipping…I can’t even tell what the SF element is), but that’s kind of the point. You won’t find a more diverse collection anywhere else.
