The 9th Annual of the Year's Best SF Author:Judith Merril Judith Merril is the most successful science fiction and fantasy anthologist in the country. Her good taste, her scope, her candor and her defiant imagination have contributed enormously to the growing stature of s-f literature. She has been a key figure in lifting s-f from a small esoteric group of devotees and placing it, rightly, in the lim... more »elight of the general literary scene. Not too long ago, s-f was read by thousands. Today it is read and enjoyed by millions.
This excellent collection -- the 9th in her series -- is a happily balanced one which will please the hard-core s-fers and will satisfy those other countless readers who, for a few hours, are looking for a thoughtful escape into that special reality called the imaginative.
