The Best Science Fiction of the Year 5

By Terry Carr

Rating: 4 stars

Does pretty much what it says on the tin. The year in question is 1975 and there are some cracking stories by some excellent names of the day in this collection. Amongst others, Cordwainer Smith delivers another story from his ‘Instrumentality of Mankind’ universe, we get two crackers from John Varley, an excellently creepy story from Ursula K. Le Guin and a slow-burning novella that eventually sucked me in by Lisa Tuttle and George R. R. Martin. A great collection with hardly a misstep amongst them.
