October Books 21) Year’s Best SF 7, edited by David G. Hartwell

I finished this on Saturday, and was hoping to do the same write-up comparing its contents with the 2001 stories on the Hugo and Nebula shortlists, but won’t really have time to do that. Just to note, though, that this was a year when I think the shortlists were at least equal to if not better than Hartwell’s selection – there are only two overlaps, Michael Swanwick’s “The Dog Said Bow-Wow” and James Patrick Kelly’s “Undone”. Other stories I liked from Hartwell’s selection included Richard Chwedyk’s “The Measure of All Things” (to which the Nebula-winning “Bronte’s Egg” is a sequel) and Ursula Le Guin’s “The Building”.

    Link to the General Grant order is fascinating – article raises the issue of multiple loyalties, but doesn’t really follow through on how the jews coped with that.
