In any collection, there is at least one story that isn't as interesting as the rest, but I really think of any in this collection that made feel that way about this book. I am partial to space stories though, so it is likely that has something to do with it. Overall though, I think this is one of the better collections to come out for a while. Quite enjoyable, and I'd recommend it for anyone with the space bug. ...more

Wileyacez Hahaha..won this from SF Signal podcast (I'm a weeener!) on my third try. I haven't read a lot of Sci Fi lately, let alone short stories, and these were great ones. Very enjoyable, so thanks a bunch to the great folks over at SF Signal. ...more

This anthology of stories featuring the adventurous and entrepreneurs of humanity, constantly striving to breach the final frontier, was very good. It contained stories of all sorts— thrilling to hilarious, sombre to silly, drab to downright unforgettable.
My favourites were~
1. Tombaugh Station— Robin Wayne Bailey
2. Excalibur— Jack McDevitt
3. The Race for Arcadia— Alex Shvartsman
4. A Walkabout Amongst the Stars— Lezli Robyn
5. Sunrise on Mercury— Robert Silverberg
6. In Panic Town, on the Backward

Old style SF stories, the kind I grew up with.

Maybe it's because I recently read Andy Weir's The Martian (edited by Schmidt), but I rather hoped that the stories in this anthology would be less whimsical and more suggestive of what we might do to actually get off our planetary backside and plant an outsole on the next step to the stars. However, if you embrace the whimsy, all the stories are good and some are excellent--and the question of how to proceed with the dream does get some attention. ...more

A nice collection of near-time science fiction. My favorites were The Race for Arcadia (Shvartsman), A Walkabout Among the Stars (Robyn), and Orpheus' Engines (McKitterick). ...more

I have a review of this in the Jan issue of sfrevu. The stories were solid, with no clunkers, but nothing rose above the ordinary.

Strong collection of short space stories for the hard-SF fan. Some better than others, but overall good traditional stories.
