Which edition of the "lives of the saints" is the most acclaimed english version?  There are several options...I'm not sure which is best.

It depends what you are looking for. An excellent place to start, I suggest, is the Prologue of Ochrid by St. Nikolai Velimirovic. It is available here online for free, and can be purchased in book form from several online sites and Orthodox bookstores. St. Nikolai does a great job of giving overviews of several saints that celebrate each day, some important or characteristic details, stories, or quotes from them, and also proceeds to give a beautiful homily for each day of the year.
