This is kind of a mixed bag of short stories. Most of the authors here are well established SF writers, and they generally created very engaging worlds, though I found the plots and characters somewhat more lackluster. Standouts included "The Island" by Peter Watts, "To Raise a Mutiny Betwixt Yourselves" by Jay Lake (great universe and characters, somewhat flat story), and the hilarious "Catastrophe Baker and a Canticle for Leibowitz" by Mike Resnick. Overall very enjoyable, if somewhat uneven and not particularly deep.
