A great collection of stories showing Walter's amazing range and versatility.

Has everything from fantasy to a sequel to Hardwired via super heroes (the first Wild Cards story ever), alternate histories of "Elvis", Lord Byron, and Well's Martians interrupting the Boxer rebellion.
I liked some of the stories in this better than others but most of them were pretty cool. Some of them have actually poked and prodded me toward reading other stuff of his that I would normally shy away from.

Really good book of short sci-fi stories. Stumbled across this book and enjoyed it more than I thought.

Walter Jon Williams has published twenty novels and short fiction collections. Most are science fiction or fantasy -Hardwired, Voice of the Whirlwind, Aristoi, Metropolitan, City on Fire to name just a few - a few are historical adventures, and the most recent, The Rift, is a disaster novel in which "I just basically pound a part of the planet down to bedrock." And that's just the opening chapters ...more
