Like all good science fiction, the stories focus on the human elements of the narrative and use the sci-fi elements as backdrop. This kind of sci-fi gives writers whole new worlds to populate and cuts the restraining orders of reality to ribbons. Always, though, the stories come back to the people that populate those worlds and how they react to the adversity of being stuck on strange planets, eaten by blobs, put in a position where they have to sacrifice themselves to save others, or the woman who comes across a very special man.
Sometimes operatic, sometimes intimate, sometimes intimate in that way, The Welcome and Other Sci-Fi Stories provides a tasty treat of delightful morsels of science fiction.
‘Control Freaks’ by Tom Benson was hilarious and I thought this one would be hard to beat by the other contributing authors. Then I came across ‘Digital Escapes’ by Paul Ruddock. Wow!
The Best In Shorts Award – Paul Ruddock for ‘Digital Escapes’. Absolutely loved it!
I particulary liked the story "Control Freaks". If ever I find a memory disc on the floor, I will be sure to stomp on it and break it into tiny pieces. My favourite story, was "Digital Escape" by guest author Paul A Ruddock. I can imagine technology advancing in the same way that has been described in this story. It certainly would be scary if this happened. The ending to this story is very clever.
I thought this book was a great way to get to know the names and styles of individual authors. There were a couple that I will definitely look for other books of theirs.
