Read from February 15 to 22, 2012 — I own a copy

Fine in parts – though somewhat padded with stories that simply are not Extreme Science Fiction as claimed by the anthology’s title and I am not just talking about the obviously out of place, predictable, and forgettable story entitled Stuffing by Jerry Oltion.

However the book is worth it alone for the excellent: The Pacific Mystery by Stephen Baxter, The Region Between by Harlan Ellison, Wang's Carpets by Greg Egan, and The Days of Solomon Gursky by Ian McDonald. In the next rank also well worth reading are The Creator by Clifford D. Simak, Merlin's Gun by Alastair Reynolds, and Judgement Engine by Greg Bear (the last if only because it is by far the most intriguingly extreme science fiction conception set out in the book).
