Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The latest story collection by one of the field’s outstanding writers makes a valuable addition to any self-respecting sf collection. The title story, like most of the other pieces, is character-centered as a single mother wrestles with high-tech taking over her town. “Patent Infringement” is a fine if brief epistolary story on the subject; “The Most Famous Little Girl in the World” is the story of the lifelong friendship of two women set against a background of alien contact. “First Flight” is an affectionate homage to the classic Tom Corbett, Space Cadet TV show of the 1950s. “To Cuddle Amy” is a powerful short-short horror story about disposable children. “My Mother, Dancing” deals with a human race called on to seed with life a completely barren universe. That Kress remains a master is everywhere evident. --Roland Green

Review

"Another of the author's substantial and provocative examinations of near-future biotechnology. . . . Kress is certainly the most probing writer of the past decade on this theme."  —Locus magazine



"Exemplifies all that is compelling and admirable about science fiction."  —David B. Coe, author, Eagle-Sage


"The keeness of vision to. . . see the possibilities for the future very clearly, and they are both fascinating and frightening."  —San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle


"A depth of imagination unusual even among SF writers."  —Analog

Nancy Kress is a very original Science Fiction author and I love most of her stories! I didn't think much of "Beggars in Spain" however, even though it won both a Hugo and Nebula awards. It just had too much mean spiritedness against the main characters who didn't need to sleep and excelled at most intellectual pursuits. I think a lot of people would want to know some of those people -- I know I would. Of course my wife and I met at MIT, so I'm not insecure in that way, but even so it's depressing to base a story on such uniform jealousy!

I bought this book because I like Nancy Kress's writing. As I read, I found out that I had read many of them before in various annual "Best Of Science Fiction" anthologies. Nonetheless, I enjoyed reading them again. There are no cookie cutter characters here. Thoughtful, well constructed stories, guaranteed to entertain.

Written by multiple award-winning author Nancy Kress, "Nano Comes to Clifford Falls And Other Stories" is a magnificent anthology of thirteen tales, with a foreword from author Mike Resnick. From exploring the human condition to just making readers laugh, Kress' writing flows with versatility; readers are in for something different with every story. "Nano Comes to Clifford Falls: And Other Stories" is highly recommended for community library fiction collections.

It is an interesting change reading the scifi written by a woman, I can certainly see and feel a difference in the stories. Besides that, very interesting stories and well written. I have found the second story in this book is my favorite so far, very unique. Recommended for any serious scifi collection.
