**** 'The literary equivalent of a well-presented buffet of tasty snacks, this latest science fiction anthology from Solaris serves up an intriguing mix of 19 short tales from some of the best SF writers at work today. Helmed by BFSA chairman Ian Whates, it's a selection that doesn't set out to be a definitive genre portrait, instead trying to capture a sense of SF's wild variety and experimentation... the overall standard is impressive [and] the highlights include Adam Roberts's sublimely brilliant ''Shall I Tell You The Problem With Time Travel?'', a story so good it alone is worth the cover price.' --SFX Magazine
'this anthology of new short stories is essential reading.' --BBC Focus magazine
