Reminds me why I used to love anthologies,
This review is from: Solaris Rising: The New Solaris Book of Science Fiction (Paperback)
Now, in any anthology of short stories, the inevitable question arises: which one was your favourite? The answer has to be "I don't know". The stories are all so gripping, so beautifully crafted... Short story anthologies were how I got into the genre, and this collection really reminds me why. Some of them, like "Point Zero", I really wanted to see expanded into novels. Others, like "Dreaming Towers, Silent Mansions" were perfect as they are.
Short story anthologies are also perfect for dipping into, so I'd recommend this book to anybody who ants a taste of the best science fiction being published today, or anyone who wants to have a look at the genre without too much pressure.
