The Best Science Fiction of the Year 14 - Terry Carr

A better than usual anthology this one, and also from the mid-80's, so more impressive for that, the average being 3.88 overall. 13 stories, and four are excellent. Carr has managed to start with the best, have two of them in the middle, and funny, at that, and end with the other. Impressive organisation.
