I'm really impressed with this anthology; it has great storytelling and mystery aspects too. I really like three of the stories alot but not so impressed with two of them. My personal favorite story of the whole anthology is called Nothing Personal. It had unique plots twists that I never expected but thoroughly enjoyed. On a side note this book was sent to my hubby for purchasing another book for me called The Cartmandu Legacy by Carol Berg. I'm happy to say that I would recommend both books fo ...more

I always bug my father for a new book when I go and visit him. Granted it takes me months to finish them and he always threatens to kill me if I don't bring them back quickly, he still picks a book out for me to take home.

EDIT: I couldn't get into this book. Each story started strong but ended up being 20 pages too long.
A collection of six novelllas edited by Resnick, a sort-of companion volume to DOWN THESE DARK SPACEWAYS from 2005. I didn't think it was as strong of a collection as the earlier volume, but it includes good stories by Pat Cadigan, Kristine Rusch, and Resnick himself.

An interesting collection of a genre that I normally would not read. The combination of mystery and science fiction is an intriguing one to contemplate, and fun to read.

It's a 5 star book just for the 150 page excerpt from Implied Spaces but the rest of the stories are pretty good too with one exception.
Interesting concept and for the most part, well-executed. Some stories better than others. Resnick is the editor.
If you like sci-fi and mysteries, this has 4 readable novellas that straddle the fence between genres.
Nice easy Sci-Fi read.
Thoroughly enjoyed it.
