Horton provides a representative sample of the Best SFF from across the various publication sources, print and online.
Almost three dozen stories, gleaned from sources far and wide, to keep you quiet for a long time!
Wow, I’ve read all of Horton’s 2012 volume in 2012, a big improvement over previous years.
A handsome book, and Horton has cast his net very far and very wide, he certainly can’t be faulted for being conservative in the range of sources from which he chooses.

A late arrival on my doorstep, and it’s taken much longer to finish the review than I had hoped. Note to self : faster dude, faster!

As has been the case with others in his take on the year’s best SF there is less I agree with than is the case with the other year’s best volumes.
