The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year: Volume Eleven

Summary: 28 stories spread over some 600 pages. I’m going to review a couple of those stories (leaving out the horror settings as usual) in the next weeks. Already the first one from Valente is terrifically great.

  • 417 •  • Whisper Road (Murder Ballad No. 9) • Caitlín R. Kiernan • I despise horror. For those that like that genre, this story might also be pointless. Especially within an anthology called „Best SF and Fantasy of the Year“ – this story doesn’t contain SF, nor fantasy at all. Just (one? or) two girls on a road trip after having shot an elderly couple.
