All of the stories in this collection blend just the right amounts of fantasy and hard science fiction to paint both plausible and mind-bogglingly fascinating worlds of the future. I wasn’t particularly impressed by Bacigalupi’s Windup Girl, but this collection might as well edge out the best of Asimov’s and Clarke’s compilations.
If you enjoy anime like Texhnolyze make sure to give this compilation a look.
