The Year's Best Science Fiction is a series of science fiction anthologies edited by Gardner Dozois. The series, which is unrelated to the similarly titled Year's Best SF series, is published by St. Martin's Press (Griffin).
In the UK the series is entitled The Mammoth Book Of Best New SF and is published by Robinson.
In 2005 Dozois edited a "Best of the Best" compilation. That compilation and the entire series is to be re-released as e-books in October 2012.
Famous quotes containing the words fiction, year and/or science:
“Americans will listen, but they do not care to read. War and Peace must wait for the leisure of retirement, which never really comes: meanwhile it helps to furnish the living room. Blockbusting fiction is bought as furniture. Unread, it maintains its value. Read, it looks like money wasted. Cunningly, Americans know that books contain a person, and they want the person, not the book.”
—Anthony Burgess (b. 1917)
“The golden mean in ethics, as in physics, is the centre of the system and that about which all revolve, and though to a distant and plodding planet it be an uttermost extreme, yet one day, when that planets year is completed, it will be found to be central.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Today the function of the artist is to bring imagination to science and science to imagination, where they meet, in the myth.”
—Cyril Connolly (19031974)
