"Best of" Collections are tricky beast. Writers of the Future has a mandate to focus on unpublished authors, which I appreciate, but this collection was a little bit of a dud. The stories were workmanlike, but only a few excited me and none blew me away. Traditional SF is a minority, with most of the collection devoted to fantasy (did we really need 2 'waifish deformed girls with magical powers at the shore stories?), horror, and religious (but not explicitly Scientologist) fiction.

Not a bad boo

After meeting most of the authors and illustrators of this fantastic compilation of the year's best, I was excited to delve into this book. David Sakmyster's story, "The Red Envelope" was a melodic and haunting tale of tradition, obsession, and love beyond the grave. It is a seductive piece, one that I believe that would be rich to see on-screen.
