I AM SURE THAT NOT HAVING A BRAIN IS FATAL.
I am not sure what the theme was for this collection. These stories cover the gambit for types of Sci-Fi, as well as quality. You will probably find a story in here that you like, but you are also certain to find some you don't like.
THERE ARE ALIEN GROUPIES?
My favorite story was After The Coup, by John Scalzi, but I had already read it, as it is part of The Human Division. Brit Mandelo wrote a really cool, yet haunting story called "The Finite Canvas" (also in Dozier's 30th annual). Scalzi had another good story called "The President's Brain is Missing". Ken MacLeod's "Earth Hour" was good and should appeal to techies. I was disappointed in Sanderson's "Firstborn". It was not bad, just not as good as what he usually writes. Charles Stross had two entries from his Laundry series. I am not a fan of British Humor, so I could not finish these long stories. Day, McCarron and Swirsky had paranormal chick lit stories that put me to sleep.
The narrators are top notch, everyone a professional.

Strong voices lend depth to unique and off the beaten path stories and characters. While you won't like every story there will be some you will connect with deeply, some that will surprise you, and others which will challange your established convictions on genre. Fantastic work all around. if you're looking for a taste of the Sci-fi writing frontier, take a leap!
