"Rich Horton’s take on the year in speculative fiction is, historically, the one more willing to seek out the overlooked niches and corners of genre in concatenating its sequence of ‘best of’. The 2014 Edition of The Year's Best Science Fiction & Fantasy proves no different... Horton casts his net to wider seas, capturing less typical sf tales." Speculicition

The 2013 edition of Rich Horton’s The Year’s Best Science Fiction and Fantasy... has a particularly pleasing spread of contributors. Some of those are familiar; some are more new... Of the various year’s best anthologies, the Horton series is a favorite of mine... Horton tends to include a diverse range of authors with pieces from various publications; also, because the series is more generally dedicated to speculative fiction as a whole, it tends to represent a more accurate range of the year’s greatest stories than those best-ofs that focus only on one genre or another."
