Horton: Anthologies <— Anthologies —> Adams: Best American SF&F

This annual best-of-the-year anthology focuses on the themes of publisher Baen's novels and other anthologies: space opera, adventure stories, and military SF. The editor's prefaces introduce each book's stories. Volume 1 has a longer essay by David Drake, reviewing the history of significant stories and novels on these themes, while David Weber has essays in Volumes 2 and 3 exploring the nature of military SF. The series' scope expanded slightly with the second volume, as indicated by the title change.

Most-reprinted authors: William Ledbetter, Brad R. Torgersen, and Michael A. Williamson (3 each).
