review 1: I love Connie Willis' short stories. This collection is uniformly excellent, which isn't surprising when you consider that they're all award-winning stories. Even if you aren't a fan of science fiction, I highly recommend these. Willis' writing style is uncommonly clear and compelling. In addition, her introduction provides insight into the writers who influenced her. This would be a great compilation to use in an English class.
review 2: This isn't really a review of the book. It is however about what I call Reader's Block. You're reading book after book and suddenly one book becomes a real struggle to read you don't want to pick it up and when you do you only manage a few pages. This no judgement of the book or indeed any book. I was reading Freda Warringto
... moren's Dracula The Undead couldn't finish it gave up. A couple months later I tried again and this time read it in one sitting. This also happened with other books. Yes Reader's block hit with this book. Which was a shame because I like Connie Willis I loved her Blackout/All Clear books. I enjoyed the stories but that dreaded block hit and it much longer to read than usual. So I'll wait and maybe give it another go sometime in the future. less

Short stories are not my favorite, but willis is enchanting as always.
Well of course Emily Dickinson thwarted a Martian invasion.
Diverse range of genres for the stories but all excellent.
Connis Willis is rad, full stop.
