Book Description

From a misty beach in Massachusetts to worlds both distant and alien, some of the best writers in science fiction—some old favorites like Robert J. Sawyer and Stephen Baxter, some up-and-coming—explore some of the many places our future may take us. You’ll find problems we face right now, as in Edward M. Lerner’s “The Night of the RFIDs” and Richard A. Lovett’s “Tiny Berries”; and others that may (or may not?) be much farther down the road, like the very alien viewpoints in Juliette Wade’s “Cold Words” and Carl Frederick’s “The Universe Beneath Our Feet.” You’ll find engaging characters like the very young extraterrestrial with a critical mission (in the White House) and an unforgiving deadline in David D. Levine’s “Pupa,” and the retired astronaut with Alzheimer’s who must remotely salvage a Moon mission in Marianne J. Dyson’s “Fly Me to the Moon.” All are guaranteed to entertain and to make you think in ways you’ve never thought before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the best of the best December 17, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of my earliest introductions to science fiction anthologies was a paperback called "Analog Annual" in the early 70s. Stories from that book are still some of my favorites nearly 40 years later. That was my introduction to Analog, the longest-running SF magazine in existence.

And this latest anthology carries on in that tradition, representing some of Analog's best stories of the new millenium. There's a little something for everyone here:

* "Outbound" by Brad Torgersen starts with the end of civilization. Then it goes on a roller-coaster ride from there as a lone survivor, a young boy, tries to survive and find hope.

* "The Universe Beneath Our Feet" by Carl Frederick shows us life in a very alien society, a race of intelligent crabs that live under an ice layer; and it shows the challenges they face when one of them dares to question common wisdom.

* "Quastiones Super Caelo Et Mundo" by Michael F. Flynn is an alternate history, but not a military story (as so many alt-histories seem to be). Rather, it's an alternate science history, exploring what would change if one small bit of knowledge had not been lost in ancient history.

* "The Purloined Labradoodle" by Barry B. Longyear is... just... weird. And I say this as someone who has been reading Longyear since his first stories back in the 70s. The man is one of my writing inspirations; but this story reads like nothing else of his I've ever read. It's loopy and silly and a whole lotta fun. In a world where personality is easily recorded and transferred to humans, animals, and artificial life forms, nothing and no one is what they/it seem.

4.0 out of 5 stars A look through alien minds September 9, 2012
By Norma
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The stories in this book will take you on a ride through widely different alien mindviews, and some of our own (like "Forget Me Not")which should make you look at yourself and at our society in a new way. I believe this is the most important aspect of science fiction, though the entertainment factor is important, too. And this collection has both. Interesting insights into alien minds, ideas that make you think twice, and some entertainment, too. But if you like battles and lots of action, this book is not for you. In my opinion, these are some of the best stories in the book: The Universe Beneath", "Pupa", "Sheena 5", "Shed Skin", "Kyrie Eleison", "Cold Words".
