5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking set of stories 8 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
You know when you're sitting in a waiting room or you're on the train and you just need something to while away an enjoyable few minutes? Then buy this book.

I am not normally an SF reader but a couple of the contributors have written books that I do like so I thought I'd give it a go. I'm so glad I did. I don't think there is one story in the whole collection that isn't strong.

Danuta Reah's "The Trouble With Dragons" is full of tension. Stuart Aken's "Rebirth" reinforces mankind's need to interact with mankind. I loved "The Removal Man" by David K Paterson and"Cat's Eye" by Peter Holz. i have to say though, that the prize for the most memorable sentence goes to Peter Ford's "Golf Planet" - "Come to think of it there must be space pilots who've never been to Widnes."

Thoroughly enjoyable. Thoroughly recommended.

This anthology from Fantastic Books Publishing contains 25 short stories from finalists in their 2012 competition. Daniel and Gabi have done a splendid job of editing the stories in the anthology ~ so good to get lots of stories in one book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A varied and offbeat mix! 20 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
'Fusion' contains a widely ranging selection of short stories including space opera, near-future dystopia, humour, social comment and more. The book has a flavour of the good old traditional science and speculative fiction magazines, with their selection of stories and features from celebrity and hitherto unknown writers. There is also a nostalgic pulp element in there, and the collection overlaps into both fantasy and horror genres. Normally, I would not take so long to read a collection, but it is currently available only as an e-book and I have been reading on screen using Kindle for PC. As an avid reader of the genres represented in 'Fusion', I agree with another reviewer who considers the stories to be of an ideal length for a coffee break. With this in mind, Luddite though I am, I intend to purchase a portable Kindle to enjoy a quick read of this and other fine science fiction that I am just discovering. 'Fusion' may be read through in one gulp or dipped into over a period, and I will be coming back to some of the stories. Rather than describe the contents in detail, I will urge you to read for yourself. There are 25 stories for a very modest outlay, providing a good read that is just that little bit different. A further plus for this purchaser is the charity donation element. Dare we hope for a print version? That cover would look good on any shelf!
