    1. So, yeah, I'm running about 15 years behind in my reading, but the nice thing about these Dozois Best Of collections is that they don't date quickly. This volume is good fiction, composed by talented and capable writers, and was excellent reading.I did realize, as I was going through, that this is the last collection where all of the stories would have been written before the September 11 attacks, which was followed by darker SF. There's probably a master's thesis in there, somewhere.Anyway, the [...]


    2. New Light on the Drake Equation - Ian R MacLeod (SCI FICTION May 2001)More Adventures on Other Planets - Michael Cassutt (SCI FICTION Jan 2001)On K2 with Kanakaredes - Dan Simmons (Red Shift (ROC) AC Sarrantonio Ed.)When This World is All On Fire - William Sanders (Asimov's SF Oct/Nov 2001)Computer Virus - Nancy Kress (Asimov's SF April 2001)Have Not Have - Geoff Ryman (Magazine of F&SF April 2001)Lobsters - Charles Stross (Asimov's SF June 2001)The Dog said Bow-Wow - Michael Swanwick (Asimo [...]


    3. These collections are always worth a read. This one is about a decade old, but holds up pretty well, with the exception of some predictions about the future of the internet that feel a bit dated. In fact, the future of the information superhighway and information tech is a recurring theme in this collection (at least 4 stories focus on it). Oddly, I noticed an abundance of sexual content in the stories (sometimes graphic), which I don't recall being the case in the other collections I've read in [...]


    4. My favorite story in the collection is the one I've read three or four times before: "The Dog Said Bow-Wow" by Michael Swanwick. The collection also includes a story I have read before and still, on second reading, actively dislike: "Lobsters" by Charles Stross. There were a few other stories that combined length with not being my cup of tea, which made this 780-page volume a slow read. Other than the Swanwick, my favorites were: "Interview: On Any Given Day" by Maureen McHugh (rejuvenation tech [...]


    5. every single one of these collections is essential reading for true fans of science fiction short stories each lengthy volume has a stellar array of all mini-genres and areas of powerfully influential science fiction: hard science, speculative, steampunk, alien invasions, apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic, space opera, fantasy, aliens, monsters, horror-ish, space travel, time travel, eco-science, evolutionary, pre-historic, parallel universes, extraterrestrials in each successive volume in the series [...]


    6. Lots of great material by Ian MacLeod, Dan Simmons, William Sanders (whose work I would explore later), Kress, Jim Grimsley, Michael Blumlein, Paul McAuley, Chris Beckett and Ken MacLeod. Also one of my favorite Swanwick stories, "The Dog Said Bow Wow", which would form the basis for his later series with Darger and Surplus. I also loved "The Chief Designer" by Andy Duncan. Once again, I recall the book cover easily, which means it's either distinctive or I spent a lot of time enjoying the book. [...]


    7. This anthology is slightly better than some of the more harrowing and frustrating collections that had been compiled by Mr Dozois in the previous years. "Glacial" was good. "On K2 with Kankaredas" was cute. But some of the other unbelievably boring stuff that is now-a-days celebrated as cerebral sci-fi dragged the anthology down.


    8. Εξαιρετική ανθολογία με ιστορίες ανθρώπινες, αλλά που σε ταξιδεύουν. Η επιστημονική φαντασία είναιτο αγαπημένο μου είδος λογοτεχνίας για αυτό το λόγο, παίρνει και εξετάζει τον άνθρωπο πέρα από το πρόσκαιρο και το εφήμερο και σε βοηθάει να βγάεις τα δικά σου συμπεράσματα. Ε [...]


    9. Really cool stories about a smart house that is taken hostage by an escaped AI, an alien bug that climbs K2, and a woman who sling-shots around a black hole to go into the future, where information technologies run the economy.


    10. If you read one sci-fi book a year, this is the one. Always stories of high caliber with a few tossed in that will keep you thinking weeks later, not to mention the collection is a primer for what science and technology everyone will be talking about five to ten years from now.




    11. ေရငတ္တုန္း ေရတြင္းထဲက်သလို ၀မ္းသာအားရဖတ္တယ္။ အမ်ားစုကို နားမလည္ႏိုင္ဘူး။ ဉာဏ္မမီဘူး။ Hard Science-fiction မ်ား။



    12. Abandoned (twice!) not because there was any problem with the short stories; I'm just not a big fan of the short story form.
