4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection, 9 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Solaris Rising: The New Solaris Book of Science Fiction (Paperback)
Ian McDonald - A smart, well-mannered uprising of the dead

A 'Facebook for the dead' brews revolution in a near-future Nigeria. Is this the setting for his next novel?

Dave Hutchinson - The incredible exploding man

A journalist and a scientist are involved in an accident at a collider research facility and are 'changed' by the experience.

Paul di Filippo - Sweet spots

Two kids discover a strange way of influencing events and learn more about life in the process.

Ken MacLeod - The best fiction of the year three

In Paris, US ex-pats watch a public demonstration of what appears to be anti-gravity device. But nothing is what it seems...

Tricia Sullivan - The one that got away

Very odd scenario played out on a beach where scavengers look for 'core'. Did not convince...

Stephen Baxter - Rock day

Matt wakes up in a near-future Liverpool to find his father missing, things all running down but his dog is still glad to see him.

Stephen Palmer - Eluna

A obscure locale and overuse of daft names (e.g. exnoo) bothbefuddle but also tease...Promising

Adam Roberts - Did I tell you the trouble with time travel?

A scientist bent on achieving time travel does so at a cost. Very dark.

Lavie Tidhar - The lives and deaths of Che Guevara

While the central conceit is never explained, this story easily achieves critical mass and packs a beautiful final twist.

Jack Skillingstead - Steel lake

Confused story about family relationships and a powerful new drug.

Mike Resnick and Laurie Tom - Mooncakes

Very dull story featuring cakes and space exploration.

Steve Rasnic Tem - At play in the fields

Moving story of an iced medical case being revived after a global collapse.

Ian Watson - How we cam back from Mars

Brilliantly paranoid tale about a Mars mission that is apparently rescued by unseen 'aliens' who supply deli sandwiches...

Pat Cadigan - You never know

Strange things happen in a New York shop when cameras are installed. But even stranger things happen nearby.

Richard Salter - Yestermorrow

The timeline fractures in 2013 causing people to live their lives in a random pattern of days. The hero is trying to catch a murderer. Unconvincing.

Jaine Fenn - Dreaming towers, silent mansions

A team are sent via a one-way portal to another world. But all is not what it seems and things start to unravel.

Keith Brooke and Eric Brown - Eternity's children

A classic story: an old spacer returns to a planet he helped open up, which has a unique alien-sourced product, in this case an immortality treatment...

Alastair Reynolds - For the ages

Starts with the lone narrator burning an indelible message about her expedition, while her oxygen supply runs down. Her tale unpacks a really big idea...

Peter F. Hamilton - Return of the mutant worms

A short story about a short story, told by an ex-SF writer. Very funny.
