Received this book through Early Reviewers. I don’t normally read SF - I found some of the stories interesting but I probably wouldn’t bother reading it again or investigating any of the authors further. ( )

I really enjoyed this best of British sci-fi. I wasn’t sure if there was going to be a British angle or if the words would be different – – seeing that I am from the states and live in Minnesota. But in a number of the stories you could understand I think the story better if you are a student of the British English language. I actually enjoyed a number of these stories because of that perspective. I think they’re more careful with the choice of words– – And therefore a little less action and a little more intellectual and analytical approach. As with any best of some of the stories are better than others but overall I’d highly recommend it. I find short stories to be very satisfying and I’m always interested to know if the author is working on a novel or if the short story is really all there is to the storyteller in the author for that story.I hope the number of the stories turn into novels. One of the other reviewer’s did a great job and outlining each of the stories in detail so I won’t go into that. But I can I highly recommend this best of anthology. Glad I got it through early reviewer’s. Paul Floyd Minneapolis Minnesota ( )

I enjoyed this much more than the equivalent Fantasy collection. The stories were a lot of fun and covered a wide range of topics, from the serious to the small. I really enjoyed "The Land Of Grunts And Squeaks" and "From The Wicked, Only Weeds Will Grow" ( )

This collection of 23 stories published in 2019 would be a wonderful gift for any of your friends interested in Science Fiction. It serves as a sampler of what authors are writing about now and what issues are being raised and discussed in the socio-political laboratory that is Science Fiction. As the Editor, Donna Scott, points out in her introduction, this collection was prophetic in its content. Many of the stories published in 2019 are about issues, such as protecting ourselves from natural threats outside our homes, the control of our world by AIs, the creation and reinforcement of a two-tier society by extreme provision of luxury for the few, and control of water being used as weapon of war, that we see realized today.

With 23 stories covering such a range of topics and live issues this collection provides plenty of food for thought and enjoyment.

I’m a little overdue in writing up this review as I got a copy of Best of British Fantasy (ed. Jared Shurin) a few days before and I wanted to have time to refresh my palette before diving into the Sci Fi compendium, Best of British Science Fiction 2019. As she has done for a number of years, Donna Scott has brought together an excellent collection of works, most of which clearly fit the genre although there are a few exotic tastes in here as well.

Indeed, the opener (The Anxiety Gene by Rhiannon Grist) is as much fantasy as anything. Without giving too much away, it draws on multiverse theories from the field of physics but that’s about as scientific as it gets. It is a taut thriller though and, if you can proceed on the assurance that spaceships and aliens lie ahead, not a bad place to start.

There is plenty of variety including one or two that seem fitting for this pandemic year. In particular, I think of Ab Initio by Susan Boulton, set in the aftermath of a much more devastating plague. Some of the stories are quite long but there are also some very brief ones. I think the briefest, also with very pointed contemporary connections is Ghosts by Emma Levin. Barely a couple of pages long (quite a meaningless measure unless your eReader has the same sized font and screen as mine!), it illustrates the potential dangers of an increasingly digitally orientated world.

Finally, one of my favourites which, I admit, has a strong whiff of ‘fairy tale’ about it: The Land of Grunts and Squeaks by Chris Beckett. If we ever do encounter truly alien aliens, communications are likely to be a significant issue – history shows that it has been hard enough even with other Homo sapiens. This one is an excellent brain twister, which you will either want to talk or think about.

It has been another good year for British Science Fiction: long may that continue.
