I haven't read the whole book, but I did get this arc because of one of the authors Alison Ingleby. And she wrote the short story "The Climb" which follows the short moment of Harry, who has been imprisoned because he stole some food. And in this dystopian future, people are imprisoned for their crimes but are able to win their freedom by completing impossible challenges

In Harry's case, he has to climb a mountain called "The Nose" which in reality it is impossible to climb up with safety protect

An interesting compilation of science fiction short stories. There’s a story for pretty much anyone. I have to give five stars to the short by Alison Ingleby, “The Climb”. Set in the future in a prison camp in Yosemite National Park, where convicts can gain freedom by a solo climb of El Capitan. As a climber myself, this was very intriguing to me. To climb The Nose without any gear would mean almost certain death. Our protagonist, Harry, is going to make the climb. No ropes and nothing to catch ...more

This is the start of a quarterly anthology of science fiction story, based in all sorts of areas, from AI to romance, dystopia to aliens, all in the near to far future. There are lots of different authors leaving their short stories in this anthology.

My first to read was by one of my favourite authors, Alison Ingleby, and is called The Climb. It is an interesting story on prison life, with a chance for freedom, but also the ugliness of reality shows such as The Running Man or Death Race (Jason S

This is a voluntary review of an ARC. I was given this by Alison Ingleby, who wrote one of the short stories “The Climb”.

Usually I do not go for collections of short stories because quite often I find them “too short” and I’m left frustrated.

However.....every story in this collection was brilliant in their own way. They wasn’t too short and were all thought provoking. I really enjoyed reading this collection.

A good anthology of stories from different authors. Some authors I have read before and some were new. I liked the mix of different stories and their take of what the future was. Great to read a story in between appointments and at lunch time. All kept my interest and reading until the end. Some made me laugh and some made me think. I liked them all.

I really enjoyed the short story, '20 mechanical catcalls hitting Meifeng square in the face on the streets of New York City in 2025'. Sweaty construction workers have been replaced by ubiquitous AI devices who inappropriately comment on women's appearance and weight. A funny and wry, imaginative account of 'progress' ...more

Breathtaking & provocative stories

I like sci fy because it challenges me to consider what it is to be human. Each of these stories succeeded in that challenge.
