The Year's Best Science Fiction: Twenty-Seventh An&hellip by Gardner Dozois
For this collection Gardner Dozois selected SF stories which he considered as best amongst those published in 2009. The one from previous year was very honest - this one is slightly weaker.

Once upon a time five young people go for a weekend to an isolated, old creepy cabin in the woods to spend some... hmm... let's call it "quality time"... Those five are the perfect representation of stereotypic victims of zombies, maniacs, monsters, ghosts, creatures, aliens, beasts, spirits, apparitions, entities, etc. which usually hunt to death young Americans everytime they step out of their comfort zone (at least in films)… Read more
