Críticas:

"Athoughtful array from a star-studded assemblage of writers. . . . [whose] subject matter travels far and wide in time, space, and human memory." Publishers Weekly

"Intellectually demanding. . . .Avery elite, highly curated set of stories; an obvious taste is at work." Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

"Astandout. The initial entry was a huge success, and 2016 editorKaren Joy Fowler brings a unique, refreshing perspective to this curated collection of the year s best sci-fi and fantasy short stories. Salman Rushdie, Charlie Jane Anders, Kelly Link, and Dexter Palmer lead a strong field of contributors who offer up some of modern genre s best writing andmost intriguingideas." B&N SciFI & Fantasy Blog

All in all, this second edition provides a comprehensive overview of the themes and troupes of science fiction and fantasy that continue to fascinate readers. . .the impact of the stories more than makes up for its comparatively smaller package. Highly recommended, especially for those interested in the finest short stories the two genres produced over the past year, but missed reading them when originally published. Bookgasm

"The second edition to theBest American Science Fiction and Fantsy, edited by Karen Joy Fowler (Mariner), is just as strong as the first, if not stronger. . . .With heavy-hitting authors such as Salman Rushdie, Anders and Sofia Samatar, this volume showcases the nuanced, playful, ever-expanding definitions of the genre and celebrates its current renaissance." The Washington Post

"There has never been a better time in science fiction and fantasy short fiction, and you need look no further than this collection to see that truth. Within, you will find magic, aliens, dystopia, fairy tales, terrifying technology, far-flung futures, uncanny planets, and more. But you ll also find heartbreak, laughter, compassion, complex morality, acceptance, strength in numbers, love, justice, the absurd, and the bittersweet. Let this collection take you to lands uncharted, and lands unknown, and lands unseen you will be glad you went, and in these countries, there is something for everyone." Tor.com"

Reseña del editor:

“A great, fun, romping collection of stories.” —San Francisco Book Review

“This volume’s diverse list of well-known and rising stars . . . makes it a welcome addition to the 'Best American' series.” —Washington Post

“A powerful collection that is worth your time, attention, and love.” —Tor


In its inaugural edition, The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy featured a diverse array of authors, stories, and sources. John Joseph Adams scours the magazine racks and websites to find the very best stories, and this year's guest editor, Karen Joy Fowler, is sure to curate a collection that encompasses all corners of the genres. As the best-selling author of both The Jane Austen Book Club and We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, Fowler knows firsthand just how different one author‘s writing can be from work to work, and she will bring that literary sensibility to her selections. However, she is also a longtime insider in the world of science fiction and fantasy, having won numerous Nebula and World Fantasy Awards and cofounded the James Tiptree, Jr. Award for works of science fiction or fantasy that expand or explore the understanding of gender. With this top-notch combination of series and guest editor, The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy builds upon the foundation established in its first year.
