The Best Fantasy Stories of the Year, 1989
The Best Fantasy Stories of the Year, 1989 by Orson Scott Card
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“The Best Fantasy Stories of the Year” was a short-lived anthology series exclusive to audio cassette, long out of print and next to impossible to find online. Recently, I had the pleasure of listening to an mp3 rip of their release for 1989. It was a great collection of stories, ranging from the dramatic story of a psychic running from love in “Prescience”, to coming-of-age story of a young girl in “Jack Straw”, to the bizarre detective story “A Dirge in Clowntown”.
I am still in debate over which was my favorite, which I suppose is the reason I enjoyed the anthology so much. My only issue was the audio quality, but even that was passable by the standards of recordings of the time. I really hope that Orson Scott Card and the other people involved in the series re-release the series thus allowing a new generation of readers to listen to such wonderful tales.
