    All in all a very worthwhile collection of stories and some are superb Nunivak Snowflakes 45A clever story of the far north seems slight but it includes a deep truth for modern life Testosterone destroys reason especially in young men It's just as much a wonder as to why women put up with us Monkey Suit 55Loved this Rev

    A nice collection of very diverse short fiction from Reynolds I won't go into story detail with one exception The last story Tiger Burning must have been a lot of fun for him to write It explores in purposely cryp

    Sci Fi Grand MasterThe majority of these short stories deserve 5 stars with the odd 3 or even 2 star tale pulling my overall assessment down to a 4 But to be fair this was a book I dipped into over several months and the less accessible stories may have struck me as poorer than the rest only because of my surroundings or mood Yes I can be a fickle reader But the ones I loved the most relied on the author’s m

Is Revelation Space stories alone attest to that This collection shows his impressive range from the claustrophobic Antarctic station Byrd Land Six to the branespanning Tiger Burning to the millennia long uest of Fury His viewpoints are as varied as his constant production of big new ideas A lone artist calmly painting the universe A planetary ecological struggle reduced to a game A fleeing a. OVERALL THOUGHTSA nice collection for the Reynolds completionist which includes a bunch of very good stories and a bunch of okay ones Not exactly as reuired reading as Zima Blue and other stories was but this collection has its share of must readsOne thing missing was notes from Reynolds himself after each story which Zima Blue and I think Galactic North had That would have made this collection just a little sweeterSTORY BY STORYNB Asterisks before titles indicate the stories I thought were best of the lotNunivak Snowflakes Messages from the future sent in rains of fish intelligent spacetime inhabiting the mechanical arm of a Inupiat teenager a lone Canadian spy trying to keep ahead of several world superpowers This is a wonderfully weird story a wholly uniue idea and the first piece Reynolds ever published at the age of 24 Great start to this collectionMonkey Suit A nice little piece with a sci fi spin on the idea of the unfinished business of the recently departed It doesn t really add much to the Revelation Space universe though so I was a tad disappointedThe Fixation Oh wow A kind of dark story with a weird premise It s sort of like the Bittorrenting of objects between parallel worlds mixed in with a bit of fantasy about an alternate world where the Antikythera Mechanism wasn t lost and was key to the formation of an empire I liked itFeeling Rejected A tiny story that s really for academics in the form of a peer review rejection for a scientific paper on the discovery of an extraterrestrial civilisation It s blithely satirical of the politics of academia today while also chock full of ideas about how we might study other civilisations I LOVE the idea of a cultural H R diagram I wish so much I could read all the cited articles As a scientist I found it hilariousFury A story about loyalty memory a 30 thousand year old galactic empire a mystery with a grisly reveal an ancient crime and the uestion of how that crime can be punished A decent tale but I admit I liked the worldbuilding than the plot There s uplifted animals tooStroboscopic Reminiscent of Player of Games by Iain M Banks except the game in this story is far deadly Players must manipulate the ecology of alien lifeforms that are only truly alive for a short burst every 72 seconds due to evolving near a pulsar Trust me it makes sense in the story The weird biology and how it s worked into the rules of a futuristic game makes this a very clever tale The political conspiracy subplot was a little less convincing thoughThe Receivers Not really my thing It s a well written story and all but the plot just didn t grip me very much The story is about what happens to some famous 20th Century composers in an alternate timeline when World War I keeps going for decades I suppose it counts as science fiction but there was no real scientific explanation to the phenomenon that occurs I guess this is a story for music aficionadosByrd Land Six Now THAT is a fucking story A physics experiment gone wrong creates a rather horrific situation for a small group of researchers in an near future Antarctic base Brilliant and chilling I really enjoyed the rather spooky imagery involving wind and ice that just seems wrongThe Star Surgeon s Apprentice Eh that was okay A fairly simplistic story about a teenage boy apprenticing on an interstellar ship which turns out to have a few secrets This was originally written for a YA anthology which explains why it s rather basic plot wise for a Reynolds story One thought It reads pretty damn goofy when a lot of exposition is given to a character that can t speak in full sentencesOn the Oodnadatta That was bizarre A bit confusing in structure but definitely a uniue idea actually of a mish mash of several seemingly incongruous ideas Self driving road trains in the Australian outback the legal status of the cryogenically frozen simulation of human minds mutant kangaroos cloning terrorists slavery of sorts WeirdFresco A depressing vignette about a lonely AI as it listens to signals from life beyond the Milky Way galaxy Kind of a companion piece to the eually short but much clever Feeling Rejected only taking an even pessimistic view Nothing special but it s nice to have it in this collectionViper Some good ideas in this one like a near future prison on a high speed train But the central concept putting criminals in VR simulations to assess their psychology is one I ve seen before an episode of The Outer Limits I think with a smack of Inception I thought I knew where it was going but the ending was ambiguous enough not to make me groanSoir e A slightly melancholy little piece about Earth s first interstellar voyagers being awoken from stasis and meeting those who came after them yet overtook them with superior technology The little white lie aspect of the brave new world reminded me of Reynolds other story Beyond the Auila Rift but with a different flavour and nowhere near as creepyThe Sledge maker s Daughter Set in a post apocalyptic England this story is oozing with worldbuilding details that hint at an epic backstory yet the plot focuses mainly on the minor tribulations of a small community I always enjoy the theme of advanced technology being rediscovered by a society reverted to simpler ways And the personal stories of the titular daughter and the old woman were compelling Very good could be a whole novel etcTiger Burning This was a fantastic story to close the collection on A sort of detective tale with an anthropomorphic feline protagonist who made me think of the comic character Blacksad set in a future where humans have colonised thousands of parallel realities A smattering of cheeky references to Shakespeare sorry Shaxpia and Forbidden Planet made me laugh while the ideas about the legal status of people after their memories have been transferred between realities were clever
