    A collection of the best science fiction prose written in 2006 from some of the genre's greatest authors, including James Patrick Kelly, Wil McCarthy, Susan Palwick, Tom Purdom, Robert Reed, Michael Swanwick, James Van Pelt, Howard Waldrop, Alastair Reynolds, Ian McDonald, Mary Rosenblum, Stephen Leigh, and Joe Haldeman.

    Chris says: "Good collection, uneven narration"

    Overall

    This is a good collection of Sci-Fi short stories, ideal in length for listening to if you want to get a whole story in on a walk. Most are well done, but I do have to note that some of the narration wasn't steller.

    Most notably, the narration for "Bank Run" by Tom Purdom, the second story in the book, lacked any sense of excitement. Even sections that should have been highlighted by some sense of urgency by the narrator, like when the windscreen of the ship the main characters are on is shot up and shattered by weapons fire, is read in the same, unexcited and unexciting tone as sections describing routine financial transactions.
