This collection of ten superbly crafted sci-fi shorts has something for everyone. It doesn't matter if you like science fiction or not - these are fantastic stories which, like all good writing, are really about extraordinary characters in extraordinary circumstances.

For sci-fi aficionados, all the pre-requisite struggles are explored - alternative realms, worlds beyond tomorrow, machines, epic journeys, technology and alien races. The one constant is humanity itself.

There is a large variety of writing styles, but the quality remains consistent as do the imaginative plots (as a fan of Vonnegut, I particularly enjoyed "Open Letter to Non-Robotic Scientists" - as well as "Inchoate" and the superbly titled "Nevermind the Bollocks").

Therefore I Am is a fantastic collection - every story is a winner.

I usually read older sci-fi stories, so I was not familiar with any of the authors of this anthology. I even wondered if they were indie authors. So I didn't expect much when I purchased this collection, but it was cheap. I was very pleasantly surprised. Every story was very well written. I enjoyed this collection so much that I bought the other Digital Science Fiction Anthologies as well.

This collection contains 10 short stories that run the spectrum of science fiction, some are more hard sci-fi and some incorporate a little fantasy. I think "Waiting Room" was my favorite story, but I enjoyed all of them.

I love reading collections of work, anthologies, collaborative works, etc. I think my favorite part is the variety each book offers, if you dont like one story, the odds are you will like another. With Therefore I Am it was great because I ended up liking many of the stories which has of course the sci fi element, but some also had a strong fantasy feel as well which was an awesome blend. I haven't researched the authors to see what other work they've done, but I can say that they seem experienced with the genre and the stories were engaging and gripping. It didn't have an amateur feel to the wording and came off very smooth.

This is an eclectic mix of science fiction stories that I believe could be enjoyed by many different age groups. They are short quick stories that are fairly easy to follow. Sometimes I have difficulty following science fiction ideas that are far fetched. This was a little 'choppy' for me at points where it didn't flow together the way I prefer but it was all in all a fun set of stories. There is very little violence but a lot of stretch of the imagination. Enjoy it for yourself.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

This is one of those books you just love to curl up with. The only bad thing is they are short stories, but that is the good thing to! I am not familiar with all of these writers which makes this a good way to get acquainted with them. Not all of these stories develop the way I would like them to but they are short stories. The mix goes from SciFi to a little fantasy which creates a great mix and with ten (10) stories it is well worth the read!!!!

I enjoy reading Sci-Fi and Fantasy fiction, and I enjoy finding new authors to follow. This has left me very frustrated since digital publishing because popular, because suddenly there are a million free and cheap e-books out there. Many of them are just horrible, Many of them have some redeeming qualities, but are truly just a "hook" to get you interested enough to purchase the other eighty-seven volumes in the series. Bah! Sometimes I despair of my Kindle ever being more than just a paperweight, which I continue to read my favorite well-loved REAL BOOKS.

Well, I am delighted to say that this book surprised me! These stories are genuine short stories, with a beginning, middle, and end - not a cliff-hanger and a "To Be Continued". They make you want more only in the very best sense, when you find an author you enjoy, and decide you'd like to find out what else they have written.

Each story is different. Each has different strengths and weaknesses. Heck, they're short stories - by the time I tried to tell you anything about them I would have had enough "spoilers" to ruin the party. So, I'm not going to go there.

In my opinion, they are all worth a read. And in this day and age, even that is really saying something.

I received the digital copy of this book free in exchange for my agreement to provide an honest review. If you look at my profile, you will see that e-Books have not been treated kindly by me, and in fact I had decided to stop reading and reviewing them altogether, but had already received this one, so I had to finish. Well, happy to be proven wrong.

I will definitely be looking up past and future editions of Digital Science Fiction Anthology, as well as searching for other works by several of the authors featured here.

I really liked these stories. They are short enough that you aren't locked into a commitment to read it (which, coming off of ASOIAF this was a huge plus ha!), but are long enough to be complete stories.

My favorite books are all sci-fi or fantasy books, so I have high expectations of my sci-fi novels. This doesn't rank up there with my faves, and I doubt I'm likely to re-read it, but it is definitely good!

There really is something for everyone in here. A whole slew of various futures and scenarios, so that was really great. And the writing is surprisingly good. I've tested out some of these e-books and haven't even gotten through the first 3 pages. This is much higher quality, and is written by writers who know how to tell a good story. They are also easy to read; not a lot of wordiness just for the sake of "sounding" smart, or feeling pretentious. Just good sci-fi, written in a way that makes it pleasant to read. I read this while reading other books simultaneously. The short stories give a nice break now and then.

Overall, I'm really pleased with the quality of this, and VERY pleasantly surprised by it. Definitely worth a read if you are looking for something to give you a distraction throughout your day.
