A bunch of completely amazing stories in here and then some that haven't aged as well. Highlight include GRRM's A Song for Lya. Tiptree's The Girl who was Plugged In. I actually even really liked Niven's Inconstant Moon even though I don't usually like his stuff. Ellison's The Deathbird will not be to everyone's taste but I found it pretty affecting. Le Guin's Omelas is one of those perfect 10 page masterpieces.

Sometimes, they give Hugo awards because, well, they feel like they have to, and the stories aren't that good. This was not one of those times. Some of these are the best of the best. "Those Who Walk Away for Omelas", "The Queen of Air and Darkness", "The Girl Who Was Plugged In", "Deathbird", "Eurema's Dam", all of them are a cut above even that top slice you'd expect to see, and there isn't a dog in the pack.

Read an abbreviated edition of this book...not all these stories are in it.

All were good solid stories though.

Inconsistant Moon was interesting for me. Read it the day after watching Melancholia, so had a good dose of end of the world fiction.
