Not really a review at the moment but a point of interest for anyone who usually orders the UK version of this annually.
Normally at this time of the year I would be looking for "The Mammoth Book of Best SF ........" to be released from Robinson /Little Brown. For anyone who has collected and read the entire series as I have, we are now up to 29,and the 2016 review would have been number 30. I couldn't find a UK publishing date and contacted RLB, only to be sadly told they wouldn't be releasing any further volumes in the series and that I should ask the US publishers ,StGriffin, if there was going to be a UK release. Alas in reply to my email I was told at this moment in time the answer was no, and I would be better off getting the American print.
Content wise I know there is no difference but its disappointing to see the UK version series end. I like to see all the covers lined up on my bookshelves. I mourned the death of Ellen Datlows "Years Best Fantasy and Horror", but at least we can still get this, all be it with a different number. I'm ordering this presently and will review it over the next few weeks.
Well, I've finished it and its the usual strong mix of stories, though like in my previous volumes review, there are certain elements that are becoming a little repetitive, ie themes on the impact of global warming, AI's influencing peoples lives, terraforming experiments, on going short story sagas by the same authors. None of them are particularly poor, just a bit more of the same . A couple of stories really did hit a nerve though, "Prodigal" by Gord Sellar and "They All have One Breath" by Karl Bunker. Worth the price of the book alone I felt.
