The editorial pair here single out the 'Red Shift' anthology by Al Sarrantonio for mention a number of times, so likely worth a look. Overall, it seems 2001 was a really good year for SF stories, and this volume starts brilliantly, and ends almost as well. This anthology averages a hugely impressive 3.97, and that is good enough for full marks. Four standout stories, and only two are average.

I love this annual collection

I just love this collection. I tend to not read sci-fi because so much of it is poorly written, but this series is wonderful, full of so many great things, and for the most part well-written "The Measure Of All Things" is the real stand out this year but even the slower moving stories end up with something that really stretches the mind. This series of anthologies bring back the wonder of the stories I was introduced to in my youth. My favorite yearly anthology.
