Karl Schroeder's story and Charles Stross's story are both very good - they make this collection worth buying. However, most of the rest are mediocre at best, and a few are kinda poor; you get to the end and you're like "what was the point of that?"
Is is really the best scifi had to offer the year this collection came out, i feel like sci-fi might need to go home and rethink its life.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Year's Top-Ten Tales of Science Fiction 4 to be better than the print version?
Not better but more available. I have more time to listen than I do to just sit and read.
What did you like best about this story?
The varied stories of future / science fiction. Each is a window to watch the story without devoting 12 to 15 hours for longer books.
Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?
The plants which take care of the world are lonely and depressed. And a bit confused. The old human race just does not make sense to them.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No other reaction other than enjoying the story.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Accents, particularly the Scottish and Irish were bad enough to be off putting. The stories are dull and dreary. It's hard to see why any of them made any top ten.
