I can't agree with guest editor Mark Helprin on all of his choices in this edition of the venerable anthology series (such as Robert Lacy's "The Natural Father"), but there is certainly some excellent reading here.

For my money, the highlights are "Entrechat," by Edith Milton and "The Water-Faucet Vision," by Gish Jen.
