I've been reading the Gardner Dozois annual best-of short SF collection for 21 years now. (Started with #3, and I still haven't found the first two volumes.) Usually takes me most of the year to get through it, since it's a big fragile paperback that doesn't travel well, and the end of every story is a convenient stopping point. (And then I start something else that's harder to put down in the middle.)
Finally finished number 23. As usual, most of the stories were good this year. I thought the best ones were the stories by Gene Wolfe, Neal Asher, and Dominic Green. There was no single standout classic, though.
Recommended, if you like SF at all. Short story collections aren't that popular, which is a shame because the ratio of ideas per page is excellent.
