Twenty-six stories, selected by editor Donna Scott from disparate places, that represent some of the best SF published anywhere during 2020: stories of heroism, stories of loss, stories of wonder. In this volume you will encounter deftly crafted tales that explore such things as the progress of AI consciousness, considerations in health and social care, and the meaning of those things that are unique in their significance to mankind: the true meaning of love, and the linear nature, or not, of time. Best of British Science Fiction 2020 is once again edited by Donna Scott, a recent chair of the BSFA and a distinguished poet, writer, and stand-up comedian. Donna is also a free-lance editor who has worked behind the scenes for a number of major publishers over the course of several years. Contents: Introduction - Donna Scott War Crimes - M. R.

Just like the other year it was a nice bundle. I am looking forward to the bundle of 2021. I appreciated a lot of the included stories. ( )

A good, creative collection of speculative fiction.
1) War Crimes by M.R. Carey:**** Very good story about a time-bomb and frozen corporal park set in London.
2) Blue and Blue and Blue and Pink by Lavie Tidhar:***1/2. Strange little story about small aircraft pilots making cargo runs into a zone of fuzzy-wuzzy mind-madness.
3) Infinite Tea in the Demara Café by Ida Keogh: ***1/2. Nice story about a widower who travels through different cafés in different universes and helps someone deal with grief.
4) All I Asked For by Anne Charnock:****1/2 Very good story - a 46-year-old pregnant woman's fetus is transferred to an artificial womb ward in a 'baby bag' to complete the gestation period. Great mother story.
5) The Savages by David Gullen: **** Unique world-building with a very intriguing species and gender dynamics.
6) Lazarus, Unbound by Liam Hogan:**** Far-future, outer space story, with an ubiquitous AI in a post-singularity setting. Would like to see this idea developed more!
7) The Cyclops Teika by Marija Smits:**** About a meteorite that infects a person with alien nanobots that, yes, create an special 'eye' in her forehead.
8) Brave New World, by Oscar Wilde, by Ian Watson:***1/2. Two time travelers go back in time with optimistic intent to pick up Oscar Wilde and bring him to the future.
9) Chimy and Chris by Stephen Oram:**** A professor raises a sentient human brain in a vat. Cool ending.
10) Mudlarking by Neil Williamson:*** In this futuristic view of Britain, they no longer have the luxury of waste.
11) Infectious by Liz Williams:**** A bored, wealthy artist catches a deadly disease on purpose.
12) Cofiwch Aberystwyth by Val Nolan:***1/2. A vlogger visits a dangerous area of Wales that was destroyed in a nuclear terrorist attack.
13) Panspermia High by Eric Brown:***1/2. Very short, funny story narrated by a bufotoxin.
14) EXHIBIT E by L. P. Melling:*** An image of the destruction of Earth appears on surface of the moon.
15) The Lori by Fiona Moore: ***1/2 A human driver goes in search of a missing sentient battle tank named Kursk.
16) Wilson Dreams of Peacocks by Melanie Smith:**** Excellently written, really would like a longer version of this story! Genetic hybrids, dream viewing, ominous imagery.
17) Variations on Heisenberg’s Third Concerto by Eleanor R. Wood:**** A scientist brings a composition back from a parallel universe but it is never the same twice.
18) The World is on Fire and You’re Out of Milk by Rhiannon A. Grist:******* The best of the collection. The world is on fire and a woman preps to go buy milk. Perfect story for our current pandemic.
19) The Turbine at the End of the World by James Rowland:***1/2
20) What Happened to 70? By C.R. Berry: ***1/2 The number 70 disappears.
21) Rings Around Saturn by Rosie Oliver: **** Geeky spaceflight tale. May the best team win.
22) The Good Shepherd by Stewart C Hotston:**** Thoughtful first-person story from a security surveillance AI.
23) Pineapples Are Not the Only Bromeliad by RB Kelly: ***1/2 Bot meets bot in the grocery store.
24) Like Clocks Work by Andi Buchanan:**** Space ship to a new world, with a robot that evolves into human form.
25) Watershed by John Gilbey: ***
26) Here Today by Geoff Nelder: *** ...gone tomorrow! ( )

I don't read science fiction very much these days. I loved it in my youth - space operas, rocket ships, ray guns and the like. I requested this free Early Reviewers copy thinking I might struggle to get through it. I was pleasantly surprised that nearly all of the stories engaged my imagination with interesting ideas about science and the future. I'm glad I read it. ( )

This was really delightful! What a thought provoking collection of stories! I haven't been reading much science fiction lately and this really sparked my interest to pick up some more. Wonderful puzzles, interesting worlds, thoughtful conundrums. A really good collection. Nice length to the selections. I found it a great book to pick up any old time when I had just a few minutes to read. There was always something there to enjoy and ponder. Thank you very much to LibraryThing and the publisher from whom I won a copy in exchange for my honest review. ( )

[Disclaimer: I got this book via LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program]
I usually appreciate a lot the anthologies of British SF brought by Newcon Press. This time however I was a bit disappointed. Probably the fault is in the year 2020 and the pandemic: even if Donna Scott says that she choose not to select too many stories even loosely related to it, I noticed a sad tone in many of the short stories. The ones I appreciated more were Infinite Tea in the Demara Café by Ida Keogh, The Savages by David Gullen (I am not sure I understood it, but the idea is really strange), Lazarus, Unbound by Liam Hogan (I would even have made it longer), Infectious by Liz Williams, Panspermia High by Eric Brown (really funny), Variations on Heisenberg’s Third Concerto by Eleanor R. Wood (a twist on multiverse), What Happened to 70? by C.R. Berry (a lot of suspension of disbelief, but nice idea), The Good Shepherd by Stewart Hotston (probably the best of the lot), Pineapples Are Not the Only Bromeliad by RB Kelly (an affair is an affair) and Like Clocks Work by Andi C Buchanan. Pity for Brave New World, by Oscar Wilde by Ian Watson; the idea was fantastic, but the realization somehow fails. ( )
