• Dori Bangs • (1989) • short story by Bruce Sterling: 4.5 star
• The Edge of the World • (1989) • short story by Michael Swanwick, 4-star, unusual & effective fantasy
• Silver Lady and the Fortyish Man • (1989) • novelette by Robin Hobb: 4+ star, romance in the dept store.

Picked this up at a local library book sale. Didn't really enjoy any of the stories aside from one or two, which ended too quickly for my liking. I would go as far as to say that most of the short stories in this collection could barely be considered science-fiction, and some of them have absolutely nothing to with the genre (I'm looking at you, story about hermaphrodite.) Also, the editing was terrible.

If you read one sci-fi book a year, this is the one. Always stories of high caliber with a few tossed in that will keep you thinking weeks later, not to mention the collection is a primer for what science and technology everyone will be talking about five to ten years from now.
