Ok, I needed a fast injection of Science Fiction and so picked up this "little" book that had been resting (and gathering dust) on my shelf. To be completely honest, I have yet to read a really good Baen book (they always seem to have the feel of cheapness..), and so, my hopes are not that great for this one, although it does contain a couple of interesting names, like Gregory Benford and Gene Wolfe.

This is a review-in-progress, which means that I will add a small review of each individual short

There were only 3 or 4 stories in here that grabbed my attention. More interesting: the writings at the end about why genetic coding for long life is not necessarily likely to be successful. Recently it's occurred to me that much of SF is concerned with finding ways to live longer than nature would normally allow, and/or become immortal - I wonder if Baen had similar thoughts.

Contains one of my favorite magical realism stories that I've written "The Nature of Things". I was honored to have it included. I'm working on a novel-length series that actually ties into "Nature".
Mixed bag. Some good ones, but they were pulled down by the rest.
Lots of stories, something for everyone.
