Definitely not my favorite collection of short stories. Orson Scott Card has a way of picking stories with heavy sexual themes. My favorites were: A Gift from the GrayLanders (Michael Bishop), I Am the Burning Bush (Gregg Keizer), and Vestibular Man (Felix C. Gotschalk).

A very strong anthology featuring great work from some established writers interspersed with promising stories from some newcomers.
Bruce Sterling's story make this totally worth the read, and so are many of the other stories.
