Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An excellent collection The challenge of writing good short fiction is difficult enough, but to write good short science fiction always seemed to me to be even more difficult, given the "extras" you need to introduce, explain, and deliver in the same space. Sawyer delivers a great collection of short fiction here. With his usual style of combining a kind of sociological or psychological bent to his tales (and characters), Sawyer lends even his short fiction with a grander depth. If you want to try Sawyer out for a "test run," his short fiction is a good place to begin.
