Today’s fans of science fiction and fantasy have an appetite for stories that address a wide variety of voices, perspectives, and styles. There is an openness to experiment and pushing boundaries, combined with the classic desire to hear about spaceships and dragons, future technology and ancient magic, and the places where they intersect. Contemporary science fiction and fantasy looks to accomplish the same goal as ever - to illuminate what it means to be human. With a diverse selection of stories chosen by series editor John Joseph Adams and Diana Gabaldon, The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy 2020 explores the ever-expanding and changing world of SFF today.

I loved it so much I returned it

Considering this is the second book I’ve returned ever in the five years I’ve had audibles. The performances we’re good. I felt that all the stories pandered to the current cancel culture and political issues. Written for like minded, little to no imagination with sci-fi aspects thrown in. I did enjoy one story. Even though I felt it followed the formula I described above.

Wished it could of been better

I’ve listened to about half the audio book and am now going to stop. I wanted to like each story but they left me not inspired or wanting more.

Disappointing

I love the writing of Diana Gabaldon, especially the Outlander series but apparently we do not share similar taste in Sci Fi stories. Perhaps I prefer more traditional Sci Fi and this is the leading edge of the genre. In any event, I was glad when it finally ended!
