Read full description of the books The Year's Best Science Fiction: Eighth Annual Collection:Story #1, Mr Boy, is all I have read so far. I loved it, but I'm still not sure what to think of it. It is some sort of twisted coming of age novel mixed with a heavy dose of satire and cyberpunk. I'm not sure what the overall point of it is yet, but I'm sure there is a deeper meaning because of all the metaphor and symbolism. It explores a person who has been stunted annually for the last 13 years to remain 12, so now he is technically 25. Everybody in this future world is highly modified, or at least the people that can afford it. People who can't afford it are referred to stiffs. "stiffs" makes me think of corpses, which doesn't make much sense at first. The protagonist also has a dirty obsession with "corpse porn", which is really just pictures of dead people. I do not want to give away too much about it, just incase anyone else wants to read it. I shall revise this review if I come to any further insights about this story, or if the other stories strike me in any way.
