Brilliant, bold, unusual, and soaring flights into the hitherto unforeseen yet increasingly possible future, Year's Best SF 15 offers truly breathtaking stories by some of speculative fiction's brightest lights, including:
Stephen Baxter • Nancy Kress • Alastair Reynolds • Geoff Ryman • Bruce Sterling • Peter Watts • Robert Charles Wilson • Gene Wolfe • and others
