There is not a story in the bunch that is not engaging to the reader.... This year's showcase seems to have an underlying theme about communication and responsibility. Whether this was intentional or not, the message is a pertinent one, and this year's selections are enjoyable and meaningful. This is an excellent book for lovers of science fiction. -"SeattlePI.com"Praise for "Nebula Awards Showcase 2013" "Essential fare for short story aficionados, even though some of the contents have appeared in other collections." - "Kirkus Reviews" "Featuring writing of the highest quality in the genre, this compilation is certain to appeal to those demanding imaginative fiction." -" Booklist" Praise for "Nebula Awards Showcase 2012" "From the cover by Nebula-winning artist Michael Whelan to the very last page, this remarkable anthology is filled with the very best....
