    At the time of reading (2004) I probably would have given this book 5 stars, but now remembering the stories, some were two sensual, most too much science fiction for my modern brain. Would not re-read.

    http://nhw.livejournal.com/211123.html[return][return]Not madly impressed; most of the stories I had read before as they were Hugo or Nebula finalists, or collected somewhere else, and the remaining ones were generally not up to much. (Honourable mentions though to "Flowers for Alice" by Cory Doctorow and Charles Stross, and especially to "Only Partly Here", by Lucius Shepard, the first successful genre story I've read about 9/11). There is also a surprisingly unprofessional level of misprints. http://nhw.livejournal.com/211123.html[return][return]Not madly impressed; most of the stories I had read before as they were Hugo or Nebula finalists, or collected somewhere else, and the remaining ones were generally not up to much.

    A war fought with the use of time travel, intelligences trapped in a computer program, a man whose synesthesia conjures up a kindred spirit, and a sentient house awaiting its master's return are just a few of the imaginative and fascinating concepts contained in this anthology. Some of the stories seemed more fantasy than science fiction, but I enjoyed almost all of them. A very satisfying collection.

    This book took about 4 months for me to read, but it was pretty enjoyable for the most part. None of the stories was bad, that I can remember, most of them were pretty interesting, and a couple were outstanding (Neil Gaiman, big surprise, and "The Chop Line" by Stephen Baxter was really freaky), hell of a buy for a 50 baht used impulse buy.

    I did enjoy it, but the last two stories struck me as more fantasy than Sci-fi.

    A fairly uneven selection of last decades SF - the standouts are The Empire of Ice Cream, a nice existential chiller and Only Partly Here - a slow burning 9/11 gothic story.
