and so on.. Congratulations to the editor of this 4 Star collection. Nicely done.
“What will it mean to be human in the future?” asks the cover blurb for Humanity 2.0.
Fifteen authors provide fifteen distinctive, wildly differing, extremely thought-provoking stories which each present a unique vision of the possibilities.
Each and every story is worth savoring as if it were a fabulous fifteen course meal. You will want to let each story settle after reading, roll around in your mind for a while, and open new pathways for ideas, before you start on the next one. It is worth taking the time to enjoy the journey.
My favorite stories were “The Iron Star” by Robert Silverberg, “Green Girl Blues” by Martin L. Shoemaker, and “The Wave” by Ken Liu.
Short thoughts on each story:
“The Waves” by Ken Liu 5 stars
A lyrical tale which illustrates how stories are an integral part of our humanity, in whatever form it takes.
“Justice and Shadow” by Angus McIntyre 4 stars

“Nexus” by Nancy Fulda 4 stars
A lovely story. I would be thrilled to read more about Tyra’s and Zek’s adventures.
