I was intrigued and pleased with the variety of stories and the possible outcomes given by the authors. Everyone will like something in the book, I liked a great deal.
This book solves the dilemma. Wikipedia acknowledges well over 2,000 authors and the list of science fiction titles is in the thousands also. When I walk down isles of science fiction in Barnes & Noble I’m overwhelmed. I wanted an easier and more effective way to explore the genre. Visions of the Future is like a guide to the multiple types of science fiction and provides a taste of the best of the best author’s writing style. This book streamlines the search process leading you to authors who best fits your taste.

Catherine Asaro's "Light and Shadow" and Brenda Cooper's "My Father's Singularity" were also favorites of mine. I especially liked how Asaro included five pages of notes at the end of her story explaining how Riemann surfaces worked and how they could be used for faster than light travel.
The luminaries who did nonfiction at the end of the book were quite educational. It was neat to hear from people such as Ray Kurzweil and Martin Rees. (Martin is Astronomer Royal for the United Kingdom.)
