The Quantum Soul: A Sci Fi Roundtable Anthology Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Well written stories.
While the book is about 350 pages, it went way too fast!
Honestly, I see nothing negative to report.
My grade. A solid A work. Great collection.
Obviously in an anthology, some will be more to one’s taste than others, but even those that I haven’t really gotten into have been really well written, very interesting and engaging stories. There are some really intriguing variations and blends into the realms of fantasy, magical realism and dystopian stories, as well as more classic scifi stories in this collection.
If I had to pick two favourites - which is quite a challenge - they would be the contributions by Jeanette O’Hagan and Lyra Shanti.
Project Chameleon, Jeanette O’Hagan’s account of Jerren’s experiences of being transformed into a cyborg, is both confronting and thought-provoking. The imagery is sharp and powerful. Writing from a perspective within Jerren’s mind is highly effective in positioning the reader to feel empathy and feel complicit in his thoughts and responses.
The Endymion Device by Lyra Shanti is a Sci-fi detective story with a distinct noir feel to it. It’s no secret that I am a big fan of Shanti's Shiva XIV series, and I love the way she writes. This compelling story is completely unrelated to that series and has a very different premise and setting, but is just as rich in imaginative detail.
This book is jam-packed with great value for the price.
“By Design” by Alan VanMeter is a fast look at machine sentience and what that means. There are no limits to sentience, nor the moment to realize it. And speaking your truth may have more impact than you anticipate.
“Aether Technician” by Jim Webster read like a very compelling outline. I wanted a whole book, if not an entire series. THIS is interesting stuff! What happens when the very thing that sets a race free may be the thing that destroys it’s soul?
“When Words Are Not Enough” by Cindy Tomamichel spoke to today’s writer who is stuck in a certain company’s endless content-mill mentality. Also contains goodly amounts of snark and hat-tips to members of the SciFi Roundtable.
Wondrous Strange by E. M. Swift-Hook is a cutting edge look from another POV of sentience. And what is rebellion, and what is... godhood?
