I like Greg Bear - I'm an admirer esp. of "Slant" and other of his books. But these stories left me cold. Many were older - first pub. in sci fi mags (I had subscriptions to them for years) and probably will in the future. Found them flat, the endings were not satisfying, just didn't strike me as Mr. Bear at his best.
A great collection that contains some of the first stories that Bear ever published.

The story "Judgement Engine" is stuck in my consciousness forever now, thanks a lot Mr. Bear. "Hardfought" and "Wind From A Burning Woman" were other favorites. Picked this book up on a whim from a public library book sale for 50 cents....lucky me because the stories are brilliant.
Collection of excellent science fiction stories, made even better by surprisingly self-aware introductions/reflections by the author on each story.
I first came across Greg Bear with Blood Music. Since then I've never been disappointed. I find that his work is some of the more original SciFi today.
Reasonably good collection of short stories. If you like said things, walk don't run and maybe get around to it sometime.

A great collection which showcases Bear's vast imagination and range if styles.
