The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year: Volume Ten (Best Science Fiction & Fantasy of the Year) - Jonathan Strahan

I've read the last several volumes of Strahan's Best SF&F and found that his tastes and mine have consistently meshed well over the last few years. I always enjoy his collections, but this volume is so far excelling them all. I'm about 2/3 of the way through and have so far marked more stories 5/5 than in any other of Strahan's anthologies -- and I still have ten more stories to read! 2015 must have been an amazing year for short SF/F -- either that, or Strahan had some better-than-usual insights this time around (maybe it's a combination of both).
