Twenty-six stories, selected by editor Donna Scott from disparate places, that represent some of the best SF published anywhere during 2020: stories of heroism, stories of loss, stories of wonder.
In this volume you will encounter deftly crafted tales that explore such things as the progress of AI consciousness, considerations in health and social care, and the meaning of those things that are unique in their significance to mankind: the true meaning of love, and the linear nature, or not, of time.
Best of British Science Fiction 2020 is once again edited by Donna Scott, a recent chair of the BSFA and a distinguished poet, writer, and stand-up comedian. Donna is also a free-lance editor who has worked behind the scenes for a number of major publishers over the course of several years.
