[PDF / Epub] ★ Fantasy: The Best of the Year, 2008 Edition Author Rich Horton – Agedanna.info
The stories in this collection were not engaging enough to draw me to finish reading it. Not recommended.

The Goss and Abraham stories published originally in Logorrhea are outstanding, but I loved several more stories too including Zivkovic and McLeod. Includes a story by Kelly Link. Disclosure #1: I tend to deeply dislike short stories written after 1960. They are usually full of overdescription with a lack of plot. So, I 'm not a short story kind of person.
Disclosure #2: I bought this collection purely because my childhood friend has a story in it. So I'm more than slightly biased...and I only read as far as her entry.
As you may expect from the above, this volume is not for me. It's full of pretty descriptions that go nowhere. A few notable exceptions that make this volume worthwhile even for the nonshort inclined
"Unpossible" by Daryl Gregory. This story is charming and evocative, exploring the line between childhood fancy and adulthood.
"Light" by Kelly Link. Full of excessive absurbdism rooted in fairy tale, the descriptions were riveting.
"Heartstrung" by Rachel Swirsky (my abovedisclosed childhood friend). Structurally a classic short story where the two main character grow into different phases of their lives, it takes this motif a stretch further. The two women, in a way, change places. This story also has something to say about Stepford Wives and making societal roles part of cultural practices. Aboveaverage collection of short stories. Most are 'modern' rather than 'classic' fantasy.
