The Year's Best Science Fiction, edited by Gardner Dozois

I read this soon after reading Hartwell/Kramer's for the same year and skipped the stories I'd read in that. I particularly liked:

"The Wedding Album" by David Marusek - Sims from a wedding become involved in the meatpeople's lives.

"Galactic North" by Alastair Reynolds - Shipmates become prisoners and follow their individual very long lives before meeting again at Galactic North.

"People Came From Earth" by Stephen Baxter - Humans on Mars have increasingly difficult lives.

"Green Tea" by Richard Wadholm - A horrifying story of how things go wrong on a spaceship and the revenge that follows.

"Hunting Mother" by Sage Walker - A "world" asteroid is inhabited by mutated humans; the duty of one may include killing his mother.

"How We Lost The Moon, A True Story by Frank W. Allen" by Paul McAuley - Experimentation on the Moon creates disaster.

"Phallicide" by Charles Sheffield - A genius from a Mormon-like cult makes medications.

"Exchange Rate" by Hal Clement - Explorers on a new world try to deal with the natives.
