I read mostly science fiction and romance, and often a combination of the two.
This a collection of science fiction stories by various authors. While I prefer to read short-story collections that have some sort of joining themes, the variety of science fiction and the quality of the stories makes up for this. There is a bit of something for everyone here - including time-travel, exploration, horror, romance, artificial intelligence and speculative science.
Not all the stories were a hit with me, but none of them were complete misses, either. My two favorite stories were probably the first story, 'Real', and another called 'The Silent Dead'. Even the stories I didn't particularly care for were well written, and I simply didn't care for them because they aren't a story type I like. 'The Wedding', for example, is horror more than science fiction to me, but it was well done regardless.
A few of the stories did feel clipped at the end, even for short-stories. Some felt unresolved. One of the hardest aspects about writing short fiction is the ending - leaving the reader appeased and not making the story feel like it's been abruptly cut off.
Overall, this is a recommended read for science fiction fans.
