    Aside from the Nebula winners (which I read long ago), I recommend Geoffrey Landis' 'Winter Fire,' which displaces the horrors of Yugoslavian dissolution on 22nd century Salzburg, and Walter Jon Williams' 'Lethe,' where loss among a set of clone couples is handled sensitively. If you bother to read the whining (and counter polemics) about the state of the art and business, then also read the essay by William Tenn [Phil Klass] where he amusingly defines the essence of SF as 'quarrelsomeness.'

    A rather ho-hum collection for a showcase. The histories of science fiction were kinda interesting, but I've read better ones in earlier anthologies. About the only story I thought interesting was Catherine Asard's The Spacetime Pool and the chapter excerpts from Ursula K. Le Guin's Powers novel, which I do want to pick up and read. As for the rest, I'll wait and see what next year brings. A rather ho-hum collection for a showcase.
