Currently reading The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year Volume Six.

So far: The Case of Death and Honey by Neil Gaiman is an excellent bit of Sherlock Holmes fiction involving death and bees (somewhat obviously).

The Cartographer Wasps and the Anarchist Bees by E. Lily Yu is, as described in the title, also about bees, though more as metaphor for human society -- very good.

Tidal Forces by Caitlin R. Kiernan was too abstract for me, and I ended up skipping it after a few pages.

Younger Women by Karen Joy Fowler was a surprisingly decent and sinister take on the "young vampire in love" story.

It's been a good, but not yet excellent, short story collection, with Neil Gaiman's offering as a real standout.
