review 1: These stories reminded me of the sf stories I read as a youth in the 60s and 70s that inspired me. That was the point of this book and they succeeded. A few stories missed the mark but overall I would strongly recommend this book as way to get your imagination moving. I did find it interesting that in many of the stories, the "big idea" was conceived and financed by some big business mogul ala RIchard Branson, Jeff Bezos, etc. In the old days it was a national or global government (ie the Federation). Definitely a sign of the times. I hope the innovators of tomorrow are reading this..
review 2: I think the aim of this book is both noble and noteworthy. Visions of the future featuring real science but with no holocausts or hyperspace, notable fiction writers
... moreworking with notable scientists to create compelling visions of the future based on the known and launched into the unknown. Unfortunately the fiction (with a few exceptions) just wasn't compelling enough to carry the science. My highest praise to the initiators, creators and editors of this work, I just wished I enjoyed the book more. less
Reviews (see all)
I really liked the concept behind this collection but I only liked 3 or 4 of the stories.
Five star is based on what it is: an anthology focused on the tech and it's implications
An engaging book of short science fiction stories with a positive outlook for the future
Almost to nice. But that was the project objectives.
