How can the theme of maps and mapping be interpreted? Let me count the eighteen ways. None of the stories failed to engage, and all hooked me from the first line. This anthology is an education in writing short, in writing historical, in writing military SF, in writing within highly detailed research, in writing normal world. It also proves a direct line into the inner workings of the writers’ minds. And what fascinating places those proved to be. Read and enjoy.

This is not the first SFFWorld title I’ve reviewed. Previously, I’ve reviewed their 2012 (Visions of Apocalypse) and 2014 collections (Wars to End All Wars). For the most part, I enjoyed these collections and had notable favourites. So when I was offered the chance to review the collection on a theme of a subject I adore (maps), I jumped at the chance.

Maps define our world and it’s something we take for granted. They are used to inform, educate, aid, influence and yes – manipulate. I studied map theory as part of a short GIS course I did a few years ago before I decided to work as a freelance writer. Armed with the knowledge of these themes and ideas of mapping in general, I eagerly entered into this collection of 18 short stories with an open mind and a little too much excitement for a man in his 40s.

Each one focuses on a different element of maps, each utilises maps or the process of mapping in some way as an essential part of the narrative. The most interesting element is observing each writer’s perceptions of maps although not all stories look at the ideas or concepts behind maps directly. It is this that grabbed me the most and it is this I most looked forward to reading about. In that respect, the volume certainly fulfilled the potential I hoped it would fulfil. But these are short stories, and ultimately fiction is to entertain. Does it succeed in that regard?

I must say that I enjoyed every story here. It is a solid collection presenting some great ideas and some interesting stories. However, few of the stories really stood out for me above all the others. I didn’t particularly find that any kept me hooked or gripped to the extent that I flew through them. But saying that, I didn’t feel that any of them were bad either.
