    I especially liked Yoon Ha Lee's "The Starship and the Temple Cat." The other few stories in here that I found of some interest are
    • Elizabeth Bear's "Okay, Glory"
    • Darryl Gregory's "Nine Last Days on Planet Earth"
    • Dave Hutchinson's "Golgatha"
    Ursula LeGuin's "Firelight" was also of some interest, but really just as a coda to the Earthsea series. Other than that, and perhaps a couple of others, this anthology wasn't of much interest at all. Maybe it's generational and I'm just not attracted to current-day sci-fi.

    This last volume in this series and it's a pity. Many of these stories are really well written and I have no idea how anyone could really have narrowed down the Hugo short-list. In hindsight there were only a small few that I didn't re-read the second time around. I still adore "The Witches guide to escape.." This was a book with stories that I enjoyed enough to want to buy the book so that I can re-read them again at my leisure
