Conhecimento Comum



Flatland-inspired butterfly-collecting aliens em Name that Book (Março 2020)



This latest Year's Best was a real disappointment. I've read them all, and they're generally pretty good.
This one, somehow collected below average for half, and the good half I already read in other venues...
Though that likely indicates at least partially this year's "style" among those who sit in editor chairs.

Every anthology has stories you like and those that you don't. This good size collection has some real Dodos and some real gems.

Anthologies are a mix... some stories you won't like. This one got a 5 for most stories were great, even rereadable, which for me is a rarity.

A collection of sci-fi stories claiming to portray a "better future." More specifically, according to the forward: no dystopia nor any technology so advanced that the world has little/no relation to our own. I question whether some of the futures presented in these stories are "better," though I generally enjoyed reading all of the tales.

The stories in this collection considered futures with changes in social, environmental, & economic conditions. I found those that tackled the former two to be more compelling than those that focused more on the last, though that is likely due to my own personal interests. Even those tales with concepts I found less interesting, I still found entertaining.

At the end of each story, the editors provide URLs to extra content - e.g., discussions & technical papers on the technology in each story. I sure wish these URLs still worked
