If I were to recieve a "Years Best..." collection from you I would immediately quit my job and read every word. I believe the fact that I am already planning to quit my job is irrelevant.

I have been reading this series since year 1. It is consistently where you find the up-and-coming new authors. Two years ago I distributed to my kids a list of the issues I was missing as possible solstice gifts. I've gotten 2 of those so far. Maybe 12 to go, but year #1 is $$$.

So, it seems clear to me, about time I got a free copy.

Crisp clean pages with that smell only a new tomb has, the soft whisper of the spine being broke into submission. Entire new worlds opening up before us, new friends to be made, new enemies to be scorned. The anticipation builds, "SEND MY COPY NOW". he screamed, terror evident in the cracking of his voice.
