Thirty-two short stories by authors such as Carrie Vaughn, Robert Reed, Alastair Reynolds, Nancy Kress, Ian McDonald, Paul J. McAuley, Damien Broderick, Michael Swanwich, Aliete de Bodard and much more.
This book doesn’t just contain a wonderful collection of sci-fi at it’s best but each story begins with an author background as it sets the stage for the story. There is, sadly, a long list of those we’ve lost in 2013 and early 2014 along with an informative look back at the publishing industry.
And I have to send out kudos to illustrator Jim Burns for the amazing cover.
I’ve long been a fan of short stories. Each word must move the story forward, something every author should master before they begin a book.
I definitely recommend you add this book to your collection.
