Reviewer and editor Rich Horton has posted his summary on the Non-US/Non-UK anthologies for 2009, which includes books like The Apex Book of World SF, Exotic Gothic 3, and X6. Here’s an excerpt:
The Apex Book of World SF is actually a reprint anthology, but several stories appeared there for the first time in English, so it qualifies for this summary. I recommend it highly in any case. My definite favorite among the new stories was Alexsandar Ziljak’s “An Evening in the City Coffeehouse, with Lydia on my Mind”, about a producer of illegally gathered VR porn, who foolishly falls for one of his subjects, only to find that her background is much stranger than he could have imagined.
