5.0 out of 5 stars i want more! January 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a great collection of shorts. I wanted it to be longer, the stories all were exquisite but it wasnt long enough. I read it all in an evening and found myself wishing for more. If you like science fiction and are looking for a brilliant collection this is for you, plus at this price its a total steal!

You might want to skip the second story unless you are into poop. Al of the stories still get your mind thinking about the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars good anthology January 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
overall a good read, a bit repetitive in the short story themes and even somewhat out of the true sci-fi sense of the word!

the illustration/image part of the book bring nothing to it and is totally irrelevant to any of the stories...

5.0 out of 5 stars readers need to be shocked before they'll think February 1, 2014
By Jpryde
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Makes me wonder if this book was mis-categorized under sci-fi. Maybe should have even filed under social-futurism or pre-release news stories.
A couple of unforgivable editing errors here and there and a bit heavy on the Neil Stephenson worship but definitely a statement. Good read.

More About the Author

Nancy Fulda is a Hugo and Nebula Nominee, a Phobos Award winner and a Vera Hinckley Mayhew Award recipient. She is the first (and so far only) female recipient of the Jim Baen Memorial Award. Her short story "Movement" recently received a Readers' Choice award from Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine.

Praise from Reviewers:

"As engrossing and brief and clever as a Twilight Zone episode, Fulda's story hooks your attention from the first sentence and stays with you long past the startling, yet fitting, end." -- Tangent Online

"The Breath of Heaven -- essentially a retelling of the HAL 9000 story, but with a very different outcome -- with its intricate examination of directives was a quite plausible updating of the classic three laws of robotics, and in some ways outshone both Asimov and Clarke in the way the story unfolded." -- Pearson Moore, Sift Book Reviews

"Movement is an award-caliber story, and clearly a major breakthrough in the career of Nancy Fulda." -- Aaron Hughes, Fantastic Reviews Blog
