Science Ficition The Best Of The Year 2007The 320 page Science Ficition The Best Of The Year 2007 Edition anthology has been out since last spring. It contains 12 works of short fiction (short stories, novellas, etc.) that were originally published in 2006. But unlike with the 2006 edition, the publisher, Wildside Books, and the editor, Rich Horton, haven’t managed to secure an audio edition. But that doesn’t mean we can’t listen to at least some of the stories.

Check these out:

Well done.”review from John @

Escape PodThe House Beyond Your Sky
By Benjamin Rosenbaum; Read by Paul Tevis
Podcaster: Escape Pod

“The simulations, while good, are not impenetrable even to their own inhabitants. Scientists teaching baboons to sort blocks may notice that all other baboons become instantly better at block-sorting, revealing a high-level caching mechanism.”
