4.0 out of 5 stars Very dark, in general Feb. 19 2012
By Icabod Brothers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The writing cannot be denied as excellent throughout this collection of stories. However, the majority of the stories are exceedingly dark. Not the right read if you're looking to be uplifted about stories of the future.

Again, very well written and engaging stories, just a bit depressing in overall tone.

3.0 out of 5 stars The problem with Anthologies... but a good one. Jan. 14 2012
By Enkidu844 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The problem with anthologies - especially ones that combine stories from different time periods - is that the quality of the total works will vary. The first story was quite bad and left me with a feeling of 'uh-oh, what did I just spend my money on', most stories are average, but some (old and new) are real gems and well worth the purchase.

All in all, a good buy for traveling and short jaunts. But not something you could sit down for a long read over.
4.0 out of 5 stars A lot of literature for the buck! Sept. 23 2012
By Kurt A. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Lightspeed Magazine is a science fiction and fantasy e-zine that specializes in carrying only the best. Among the participating authors are such big names as Orson Scott Car, Stephen King and Ursula Le Guin, just to name a few! This anthology collects all of the stories from the first year of Lightspeed, containing some 48 stories...if I counted correctly.

As you might expect with an anthology of stories by different authors, they run the gamut from the so-so to the fantastic - though admittedly, a good deal of that is taste. Personally, I loved David Barr Kirtley's Cats In Victory, Genevieve Valentine's The Zeppelin Conductors' Society Annual Gentlemen's Ball, and Stephen King's Beach World. Probably the best part of a book like this is that it can introduce you to authors whose work you have never encountered before, or reintroduce you to authors you thought you knew.

I really enjoyed this nice, thick book, and I don't hesitate to recommend it. It's a lot of literature for the buck!
4.0 out of 5 stars thoroughly recommended Sept. 1 2012
By John Haylock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
i've been disappointed with many recent sf anthologies, but this one is excellent, a combination of big names and new guys, the literary quality is very high,and the themes explored are often novel and never less than intriguing, this is on a par with Gardner Dozois hugely entertaining field leader, the massive annual sf round up ...'Best new sf', purchase with utter confidence, and here's to volume two !
4.0 out of 5 stars 4 1/2 July 1 2012

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Some unpleasant stories, but many excellent stories. Lots of variety. Really worth the moolah. Cheaper than a subscription to a sci fi mag
