This is a very good collection of genre fiction from around the world. No two of the stories are alike, which means that while not all of them will appeal to every reader, every reader will find something enjoyable. For me, the standouts were "The Lo ...more

Terry Pratchett
“A good plan isn't one where someone wins, it's where nobody thinks they've lost.”
Terry Pratchett, The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents

Michael Flynn
“Everything in the universe is older than it seems. Blame Einstein for that. We see what a thing was when the light left it, and that was long ago. Nothing in the night sky is contemporary, not to us, not to one another. Ancient stars exploded into ruin before their sparkle ever caught our eyes; those glimpsed in glowing "nurseries" were crones before we witnessed their birth. Everything we marvel at is already gone.

Yet, light rays go out forever, so that everything grown old and decayed retains somewhere the appearance of its youth. The universe is full of ghosts.

But images are light, and light is energy, and energy is matter; and matter is real. So image and reality are the same thing, after all. Blame Einstein for that, as well.”
Michael Flynn, The January Dancer

Michael Flynn
“He was a man of great depth but of limited breadth, so that while he knew very little, he knew a great deal about it.”
Michael Flynn, The January Dancer

Warren Ellis
“If contemporary literary fiction doesn't read a bit like science fiction then it's probably not all that contemporary, is it”
Warren Ellis

Thomas Merton
“My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it. Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.”
Thomas Merton, Thoughts in Solitude
