Engineering Infinity (2011)
3.7 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: As I have stated more than once in previous reviews, I am a great fan of short stories and they are one of the best means to experience unfamiliar authors. This anthology has a nice mix of the familiar & unfamiliar and most of the stories fit pretty well within my preferred sub-g...
Wings of Fire (2010)

review 1: I skipped some stories because they didn't appeal but found many that really, really did. I hadn't given Holly Black any time after reading and disliking Tithe as a teenager, but her story was so good I'll be seeking out more of her stuff. I read the story because it was my only ...

review 1: I went through and rated each story and came out with a combined average of 3.4 stars. There are, in my mind, four pieces that I gave 5 stars to and a number of stories where I was hard on them because they relied on the reader already knowing the characters. I decided to rate th...
Godlike Machines (2010)

review 1: Overall I felt the narratives in the majority of the stories here took a backseat to the 'hard' science. I'm all for getting the impression my science fiction is accurate enough. But I really don't care for long technical explanations about how it was possible for X-based lifefo...
