The music of Rush, one of the most successful bands in music history, is filled with fantastic stories, evocative images, thought-provoking futures and pasts. In this anthology, notable, best-selling, and award-winning writers each chose a Rush song as the spark for a new story, drawing inspiration from the visionary trio Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart.
Enduring stark dystopian struggles or testing the limits of the human spirit, the characters populating 2113 find strength while searching for hope in a world that is repressive, dangerous, or just debilitatingly bland. Most of these tales are science fiction, but some are fantasies, thrillers, even edgy mainstream. Many of Rush's big hits are represented, as well as deeper cuts...with wonderful results. This anthology also includes the seminal stories that inspired the Rush classics "Red Barchetta" and "Roll the Bones", as well as Kevin J. Anderson's novella sequel to the groundbreaking Rush album 2112.
2113 contains stories by New York Times best-selling authors Kevin J. Anderson, Michael Z. Williamson, David Alan Mack, David Farland, Dayton Ward, and Mercedes Lackey; award winners Fritz Leiber, John McFetridge, Steven Savile, Brad R. Torgersen, Ron Collins, David Niall Wilson, and Brian Hodge, as well as many other authors with their imaginations on fire.

I'm a RUSH fan, but ...no..not this book
I did recommend it but with a huge disclaimer that some of it was worse than listening to a golf-themed science fiction movie.
do better next time and I will
There is a very good background story to part of this book dealing with Red Barchetta and I thought that was a great story in itself. I'll say that there was a lot of overly written stories here that didn't hit the mark but I'll leave it up to the personal tastes of others. Those more into Sci-Fi might enjoy this more, but look up the Red Barchetta story that is part of this book and it might just pull you in
