(Pangaea #1)

4.14  ·  Rating details ·  14 ratings  ·  6 reviews
At least four times in Earth's history, the continents have come sliding together to form a single mass-a super-continent. Geologists have dubbed the most recent such formation Pangaea. Of course, Pangaea broke up a long time ago, and because it did, different portions of mankind developed in drastically different climes and circumstances. But what if we were living on one ...more

Yes, I have a story in this collection, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy the work of my betters and recommend them to you. there are some very fine tales here and as you read through the anthology, you get a really good sense of the world and the changes afoot. if you like alternate earths, this one is for you. ...more

I backed this Kickstarter campaign due to many of the authors involved. It sort of reminded me of a role playing game sourcebook as authors each wrote a story based on a different country and there was some shared back matter. Overall I’d have preferred essays about the world, the ethnic breakdown and how human society was affected by having only a single landmass. It bad but lacking something that made me genuinely interested in the place as a setting

Picked this one up from the kickstarter because the premise sounded cool and I like several of the authors. Taken as a whole this collection was alright. The complaints I have are pretty minor but there just wasn't anything that really made me want to pick up the next volume that they're kickstarting.

My biggest single complaint is that almost every short story in this collection just felt like set up for another, bigger story. While there was a plot thread that was followed through a handful of

Pangaea was a project I backed via Kickstarter for many reasons, a number of the authors included in this anthology were very familiar to me having read many of their other works both original and licensed properties and I find the idea of a central theme being shared amongst authors very appealing. In this collection the core idea is that the Earth has a single supercontinent and many of the environmental conditions which created our global society as it is never happened so how would mankind d ...more

Pangaea is a great collection of stories speculating what life could be like if Earth was a super continent. There is a mystery that runs through some of the stories starting with the first one. Other stories are essentially independent. One story, "A Dearth of Dragons" by Adam Troy-Castro, is a standalone masterpiece of storytelling. The only story I did not care for was Russ Colchamiro's "The Kites of Alogornae" which was too mean spirited for my taste. The collection ends with Peter David's " ...more

Whata great beginning to what I hope goes on for a long time.
Full of writers I love.
One world.
That is a wild idea.

Some of the stories touch or overlap in very interesting ways.
The 2nd book will be very welcome by me...I can't wait to see where this goes.
