In the anthology, Edge of Infinity.

The first book in The Expanse. And so my next few months of reading begins.

This is the story of how they got the super fast drives for the space ships. Good stuff.

Next up in The Expanse reading list is The Churn. ( )

I didn't like Pat Cadigan's award-winning opener and couldn't get through the last story by Bruce Sterling, but nearly everything in between was pretty great. I've really enjoyed all the Solaris anthologies I've read so far and recommend them highly.

Also, I love this cover. ( )

This is a great little collection of SF short stories, written by some of the well know SF writes at the moment, and by others that I haven’t come across before.

There are a couple of stories that I was not that keen on, but most of them were good. Two of my particular favourites were those written by Stephen Baxter and Alistair Reynolds, and the best in the book, I felt, was by Kristine Kathryn Rusch about the space driving test.

The publisher seems to do quite a few of these short story collections, so will be looking out for those. ( )

As Fry, the Girl-Thing says, it's about doing the best you can with the tools available. But it's also about reaching out and grabbing the tools you need, even if that means making yourself into a tool. And that's the story of how Fry, a featherless biped genius beauty queen, went out for sushi and tried to make a new world. ( )

I never feel that I read enough in the way of short stories, so I try to get them in through anthologies (I seem to love acquiring solely science fiction anthologies). I bought this one a while ago and am glad to have finally got around to reading it. There are some gems here and as usual, some new to me authors that I now want to seek out longer works by.

The Girl-Thing Who Went Out For Sushi by Pat Conroy
Excellent story & my measure of those is that I get to the end & want to know more. I hoped the rest would live up to such a wonderful beginning & then thought I was glad this one wasn't put at the end. Humans going through some serious changes to live and work out in far space. Fascinating and kind of scary. Definitely an author whose work I'll seek out.

Drive by James Corey
As a fan of The Expanse series, I'd already read this short and can say, it's very good. It reminded me that I need to get back to reading that series.

Safety Tests by Kristine Kathryn Rausch.
Even in space the licensing of vehicle operators is dicey. This definitely made me want to get back to her Retrieval Artist series.

Vainglory by Alastair Reynolds.
I really enjoyed this short about an artist whose medium is asteroids and the guy who basically uses her art as a conduit to mass destruction all for his, well the title says it all. I have lots of Reynolds' books in my deep TBR pile & I've put reading them off because getting drawn into yet another series is a bit daunting a thought (I've so many I'm in the midst of already!). But, I'm thinking I'm going to just have to because this made me hope this was part of those worlds and I want to know more.

Water Rights by An Owomoyela.
Tense times after the ascender from Earth that transports water to space is disrupted by what may not have been an accident. Jordan, owner of the hydro rig Owole Hydroponics has her dreams of roses in space evaporate but only temporarily. A good story about the importance of water and peopel helping one another out & also making the dream of one, the rallying point for all. This definitely made me want to read more by Owomoyela.

Overall, this was a pretty good collection. I've mentioned my favorites here but that's not to say the other stories weren't good as well. With anthologies, it's always about personal taste so I'd recommend this one. I found enough that makes me want to seek out the "new to me" authors' other work and that's one of the things I always look for. ( )
