5 Comments on TOC: The Year’s Best Science Fiction #27, edited by Gardner Dozois

  1. I’ve read three of these stories so far, and they were definitely pretty damn good.

    Nice to see some online sources on the list.

  2. Excellent point!  Which reminds me that several of the stories — as now noted above — can be found online.

    Er… Where are Alastair Reynolds and Greg Egan’s stories? Their name does appear on the advertized cover at Amazon’s.

  4. Not sure — wither the TOC source is wrong, or the cover image is wrong.

  5. Hey there, I was wondering if anyone knew a forum or community where there are discussions on the stories within this collection. I’m having some trouble understanding the last paragraphs of Things Undone by John Barnes and would love some insight from fellow readers. Any info would be appreciated
