Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am more of a fan of "hard" science fiction, but bought this kind of on a whim. It wasn't really for me. I'm willing to take a risk on anthologies because if a writer's style or whatever doesn't grab me, I can just go to the next story. The problem with this book was that most of the stories didn't work for me. Make sure you are familiar with a few of the writers before you buy this, if you like their work I'm sure you will like the book. Oh well, live and learn...

Some of the stories were pretty good and many had a fantasy slant, but none were what I'd call Science Fiction, and I really wanted to read some good SciFi. I bought the Kindle edition for 99 cents, so it's not like I feel cheated either. I was just looking for space ships or future tech, something like that. I bought volumes two and three of this series at the same time (also for 99 cents each) so wish me luck with those.

The stories in Eclipse 1 were apparently intentionally chosen because they're a little offbeat, not necessarily the "hard" science fiction found in most of the "years best science fiction"-type anthologies.
Since -- for the average reader, at least -- one's personal preferences in rating one story better than another are largely subjective, most anthologies are a mix of stories covering the whole ten-point scale from "didn't like it at all / hated it!" to "Wow! I loved it".
And that was the case for me with the stories in Eclipse 1. Although almost all the stories were on the upper end of my personal 10 point scale. Most I liked, a few I loved. There were only a couple that I considered not finishing reading. And there was only one that I actually didn't read to the end. (I rarely walk out of even horrific movies, either.)
I'm not a professional writer or editor or literature critic by any means, but I thought that most of the stories were well-plotted and well-written. I liked the writing style and sub-genre of some more than others, but I think that's to be expected.
The short summary is: I liked Eclipse 1 well enough that I'm planning to buy Eclipse 2. And probably Eclipse 3 and ... .

Format: Paperback
This is one of the best original anthologies that I have read in some time. Several of the stories here made my Hugo nominations ballot. I am not a huge fan of fantasy, but I loved "The Last and Only, or Mr. Moscowitz Becomes French" by Peter S. Beagle, "In the Forest of the Queen" by Gwyneth Jones, and "Larissa Miusov" by Lucius Shepard. Considering all the bad short fiction that I have read in other anthologies, this one is head and shoulders above the rest. Bravo, Johnathan!
