Like Legends, the list of writers in Far Horizons reads like a Who's Who of the genre: Le Guin, Joe Haldeman, Orson Scott Card, David Brin, Simmons, Nancy Kress, Frederik Pohl, Gregory Benford, McCaffrey and Greg Bear, as well as Silverberg himself. And like Legends, the authors take a page or two to introduce their stories so that newcomers won't be totally lost. The average story in Far Horizons is, as you might expect, a significant cut above the average SF story, although this anthology is not quite as successful as its predecessor. Authors like Le Guin and Simmons have come up with some first-rate stuff, but Card and McCaffrey have produced stories that are mediocre at best. Overall, though, the book has far more ups than downs, and serious readers won't want to miss this one. Those new to the world of SF will also find Far Horizons an invaluable reference when they're looking for good authors to read. --Craig E. Engler
This is a typical science fiction anthology. Silverberg, a Grand Master of the field, has an unerring eye for the good stuff. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Paul J. Martos

Great stories by lots of top authors. In this book many wonderful sci-fic authors revisit worlds/universes they had written about previously and write a new story in that world. Read morePublished 4 months ago by deserthound

Some stories a bit tedious, especially if you are unfamiliar with the works they are basing the story on. Better to read some of their original novels.Published 5 months ago by Dr.Z
