Summary (From the publisher):

"An excellent anthology, packed with fine stuff and including many good stories originally published outside the science fiction magazines."--Fantasy & Science Fiction

This acclaim was typical of the many fine reviews of last year's compiltion of the WORLD'S BEST SCIENCE FICTION, and it is equally comparable to the current volume, in which nearly half of the stories will be new even to regular readers of the American science fiction magazines.

Here are stories of space exploration, strange human societies of tomorrow, adventures in the far future and compelling visions of world apocalypse. These are the finest stories of modern science fiction, a rich treasury of wonder to stay in your memory while the future continues to become the present.
