really liked it
bookshelves: f-sf
Read from July 26 to 28, 2011 — I own a copy

I am cautious of collections, but was pleasantly surprised by this. The writing was of a consistently competent standard, with some fresh ideas and some new writes as well as a few more well known. It seems to be popular to create new dystopias-perhaps the world vision is bleaker in a world with pointless wars, crumbling economies and imminent climate collapse. 2 stories appealed to me in particular-The Cassandra project by Jack McDevitt which is a good spin on the conspiracy theories about the moon landings, and Jackie's Boy by Steven Popkes, an optimistic dystopic story about a talking elephant.
