HASH(0x9bc33228) von 5 Sternen Science Fiction And Fantasy By Leading Writers 5. März 2006
Von Kevin Spoering - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
For those of you that prefer pure 'Hard' science fiction please be advised that some of the sixteen stories here contain elements of fantasy, and I for one also prefer 'Hard' science fiction. Nevertheless, every one of these stories are page turners and will keep your interest. These writers are veterans, and at the beginning of each story editor Lou Anders, also an accomplished writer, introduces each one of them, they all have impressive credentials. All of the stories demonstrate great creativity, and the words just flow off the pages. After reading this, perhaps you, like me, will realize that a lot of unanticipated bad things may materialize out of future capabilities. Read and enjoy.

Lou Anders oversaw the fine anthology LIVE WITHOUT A NET: his latest compilation, FUTURESHOCKS, gathers new science fiction and horror stories which have roots in biological, technological and sociological change and feature works by seasoned authors, from Paul Di Fillipo and Mike Resnick to Harry Turtledove and Louise Marley. Any who enjoy speculating about the future's dangers will relish a collection which gathers engrossing stories of future dangers.

Von average - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is an interesting book, if a little flimsy quality if you are going to be paying trade prices. Groovy cover, though. Some decent stuff here, and it was certainly interesting to see Chris Roberson in something like this.

A pretty good collection, average rating for stories almost makes 3.5.

HASH(0x9bc33a80) von 5 Sternen interesting science fiction anthology 3. Januar 2006
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
As described in the introduction, this sixteen collection science fiction anthology focuses on future trending of "new fears arising out of sociological, biological or technological change". Each tale centers on a particular hot button that a relatively large populace believes will lead to the end of society as we know it; similar as pointed out by Mr. Anders to the 1950s and 1960s nuclear trepidations. The contributions range the spectrum of controversy such as bioengineering or "living" after death, and of course AI, etc. Overall the compilation is superb with some tales going very deep in spite of the shortness. A shocked audience will ponder bad choices that lead to the denigrating of a group; not necessarily purebred human. Though a few tales surface the potential, they do not dig deep into the impact; however, for the most part most of the compilation will leave readers wondering whether Pogo is right that we met the enemy and he (or she or it) is us.
