I must say that it is a slick and professional production that you would expect to see from New Scientist.

It opens with a brief introduction to each of the contributors with summaries of their most memorable works and poses the question “what next?” to settle us in and give a hint of what to expect from their relevant pieces. Some are humorous, the responses are a mix of optimism, pessimism and humour that sets the tone for their individual work.

About half the pieces were great, the rest were eh. But that's a high enough average for me to give the next issue a go.

The fiction was much better than the non-fiction. The former tended to be crisp and mature, the latter tended to feel like underfunded feature pieces or chapters that were edited out of a larger work.

Really cool publication, I'm definitely buying the rest. The non-fiction, such as China's teutheriffic tour of a squid lab, generally outshines the fiction, but you can tell from the contributors' names it's all top-flight material.

Collection, and I think the 3 stars pretty much cover most of the stuff in it. More comments some other time.

I love this quarterly. It is by far my favorite publication out there.
