Summary:

Science fiction and fantasy can encompass so much, from far-future deep-space sagas to quiet contemporary tales to imaginary kingdoms and unreal beast. But what the best of these stories do is the same across the genres--they illuminate the full gamut of human experience, interrogating our hopes and our fears. With a diverse selection of stories chosen by series editor John Joseph Adams and guest editor Charles Yu, THE BEST AMERICAN SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY 2017 continues to explore the ever-expanding and changing world of science fiction and fantasy today, with Yu bringing his unique view--literary, meta, and adventurous--to the series' third edition.--
