New Voices in Science Fiction, ed. by Mike Resnick
This compilation was published in 2003, and indeed, it includes a couple stories by authors who have gone on to hit it big in the science fiction community - Cory Doctorow, for example. Some of the stories are a bit trite and unoriginal, but others are quite good. The story "The Faithful" by Kage Baker is utterly brilliant, and I laughed out loud at the ending. I actually read it over again to better appreciate it. For a book I randomly picked up in a hostel in Switzerland, I was very pleased with this.
