"A brilliant collection"

This is some of the best scientific science fiction that i have come across in many years. The stories will make you think and look at a few things differently and it will twist your mind into new shapes as you try to comprehend the many uses of nanobots. The whole book ends on singular note that is sure to bring a smile to your face. 10/10 from me for this brilliant clever and often funny collection.

"This is proper science fiction."

Finally there is a book of science fiction stories that are true scifi. The stories contained in the book start off reasonably passive and build into more complicated and twisted themes as you progress through the book. it is refreshing to have such a good scientific science fiction after years of having fantasy lumped into the same genre. in here there are no dragons or swords and sandles fantasy. well worth every cent this book, it recieves top marks from me.


Here are 25 stories of science fiction that push the envelope, by the biggest names in an emerging new crop of high-tech futuristic SF - including Charles Stross, Robert Reed, Alastair Reynolds, Peter Hamilton and Neal Asher. High-tech SF has made a significant comeback in the last decade, as bestselling authors successfully blend the super-science of 'hard science fiction' with real characters in an understandable scenario. It is perhaps a reflection of how technologically controlled our world is that readers increasingly look for science fiction that considers the fates of mankind as a result of increasing scientific domination. This anthology brings together the most extreme examples of the new high-tech, far-future science fiction, pushing the limits way beyond normal boundaries. The stories include: "A Perpetual War Fought Within a Cosmic String", "A Weapon That Could Destroy the Universe", "A Machine That Detects Alternate Worlds and Creates a Choice of Christs", "An Immortal Dead Man Sent To The End of the Universe", "Murder in Virtual Reality", "A Spaceship So Large That There is An Entire Planetary System Within It", and "An Analytical Engine At The End of Time", and "Encountering the Untouchable."
