A year post-publication, this volume of stories was a pleasure to re-read. The authors, all Writers of the Future Contest Finalists (many placing multiple times) as well as contest Winners, deftly weave plot, character, setting, and theme -- some like samurai swordsmen, leaving small cuts upon our consciences; others like Ariadne, guiding us through the Minotaur's Labyrinth eliciting thrills, fears, and wonder.
While one can never account for personal readers' tastes, the skill displayed herein with story and words demonstrate why you find these authors' stories and novels snapped up for new anthologies and for many of the top professional markets of today (Asimov's, IGMS, Nature, Baen Universe, Daily Science Fiction, Fireside). Their number include Aurealis Award (Sean Monaghan) and Hugo Award nominees (Kary English). I am humbled to have my name appear among them.
Here are tales of hard sf and epic fantasy; post-apocalyptic tales (both sf and mythical horror), space opera and urban fantasy. For me, however, it is more than the awe and wonder these stories (and anthologies, see 2nd & Starlight as well) evoke, it is the characters and their personal journeys, the heart at the center of each tale that elicit a moment of pause…and reflection. Happy anniversary, Starlighters!
