Nebula Awards No. 22: Sfwa's Choices for the Best Science Fiction and Fantasy, 1986

George Zebrowski, Editor Houghton Mifflin Harcourt P $19.95 (332p) ISBN 978-0-15-164929-7
This year's anthology of the Science Fiction Writers of America's Nebula Awards winners and nominees includes some of the best authors in the field, although here they are continuing their previous concerns rather than breaking new ground. Gregory Benford brings back a character from one of his novels only to put him in a curious hell along with Ernest Hemingway and Isaac Newton. Orson Scott Card returns to his postholocaust Utah for another wry moral tale and Isaac Asimov, named a grandmaster, is represented by a brief, recent Robot story and a droll after-dinner speech. Kate Wilhelm has another of her hypnotic tales of unresolved relationships and Lucius Shepard is still refighting his hallucinatory Vietnam War in the South American jungles. (April)
