I don’t know how many of you have been following the short fiction end of year summaries that Rich Horton has been posting over in his sff.net newsgroup.

I thought the stories were each quite good, and original. My favorites were Sarah Monette’s “A Light In Troy”, about a survivor of a conquered country who think she sees a child of her people, though all were thought to have been killed; Lavie Tidhar’s “304, Adolf Hitler Strasse”, about a strange perversion in a Nazi conquered alternate history; and Vylar Kaftan’s “Lydia’s Body”, about a woman lost in time, stranded in the body of a woman of the frontier.
