Variant Reflections is a collection of twelve sci-fi/fantasy short stories that explores humanity, and, in my opinion, what it means to be human. The stories are enjoyable, thought provoking (and one in particular) rather chilling and will likely keep me awake for a few days to come. A couple of the stories didn't really do it for me and felt like they could use another go over or a bit more time on a better ending, but that could just be my own interpretation of them.

Robert Robinson's Varient Reflections is an eclectic set of short stories they vary in genre from sci-fi to military and in essence, there is something for everyone. Many of the stories have the potential to be expanded and perhaps made into a novella or full length novel. I particularly liked the first 3 stories, for me they had the most potential. But of course this is personal preference. I would be happy to read more of Roberts work, and would love to see his stories develop. 4*

I really liked this book. A collection of sci-if short stories that felt more like a movie anthology to me. Each story is its own, but there were definite connections, and I imagined this as one futuristic world, and each character dealing with some major catastrophe that happened in their part of the world/universe. Great read.

I received this book during a free promo to provide an honest and unbiased review.

Well I read the twelve short stories in this book and have a over all opinion of this book being OK. Some of the stories confused me and some seemed like they weren't complete stories. I did enjoy "Tin Soldiers" and wished it was longer. "Mirrors and Shadows" was my favorite and made me want to know more. But the others just were confusing or felt incomplete.
