Ach one I haven t inished this book If I ever continue I will update my review but as of now I just can t get into it anySummaryThe Thought War by Paul McAuley Interesting concept about zombies and invasion yet maybe if the story had been longer I would have appreciated it As is even though it was short it A coerência textual felt long with parts that Ielt like skimming A 35 or originality aloneHow to Talk to #Girls at Party by Neil Gaiman Sorry I couldn t get #at Party by Neil Gaiman Sorry I couldn t get this one at all I always thought I was open to different styles and stories but even the premises kind of made no sense to me I can t give it than a 2 Face Value by Karen I can t give it than a 2 Face Value by Karen Fuller Finally one that was worth the read A couple is studying a species on a strange planet I loved the way it was described How the aliens How the couple dealt with the isolation and It was easy to relate to them This one was a solid 5The Road Not Taken by Harry Turtledove A un story about an invading race who met something they didn t expect earthlings Just to say that technology has different branches 5The aliens who knew I mean everything by George Alec Effinger Oh mywhere to startWhat would you do if you d encounter people who thought they knew everything Would you accept their answers as the absolute truth Lots of twists in that one and an ending I absolutely didn t expect I just loved it If I could give than 5 I wouldI am the doorway by Stephen King If you like King you should like this one too This story left me wondering if what we were told was true or if it was all in the mind of the astronaut 4Recycling strategies or the inner city by Pat Murphy I couldn t get into that one although I read it all It just wasn t my cup of tea 2 The 43 Antarean dynasties by Mike Resnick Earthlings guided by an indigene visit another planet I love the alien who of course isn t one since it s on his planet I can easily imagine people acting like the humans 4The gold bug by Orson Scott Card Interesting view on another world Might have been better as a ull length story 4Kin by Bruce McAllister I really liked that one A boy seek the help of an alien to do something First Year Teacher: Wit and Wisdom from Teachers Who'€ve Been There for him I think it was well thought with aew twists Too short but a Revenge of the Land: A Century of Greed, Tragedy, and Murder on a Saskatchewan Farm fun read 5Guerilla mural of a siren s song by Ernest Hogan I am sorry I DNF that one I tried but it was really not the type of story I was expecting to get when I bought this book 1Angel by Pat Cadigan Loved this one Who or what was the Angel or should I just call him Angel remains a mystery but the whole idea was great and well written 5Theirst contact with the Gorgonids by Ursula K Le Guin First Encounter with aliens in the desert in Australia Mehinteresting but too short andI don t knowIt could have been good April 16th: Virginia Tech Remembers for it missed the spotor me 3Sunday night Yams at Minnie and Earl s by Adam Tro. Ow the story of alien contact would play out Editor Marty Halpern has gathered together some of the best stories of the last 30 years by today's most exciting genre writers FEATURING STORIES BY STEPHEN BAXTER ORSON SCOTT CARD CORY DOCTOROW KAREN JOY. Best scifi anthology I have so ar and I have read plenty I love anthologies since I think the best orm of scifi is the short prose From 26 stories there were 4 I did not like one as expected since I never ever could like a Doctorow story no matter how often I try and all the rest were 45 or Mindful Living with Aspergers Syndrome full 55s That is amazingor me I do not give 5 stars easily but obviously Halpern is my doppelganger rom beyond the seas in regard to scifi taste they were EXACTLY the scifi I want realistic logical tangible acts The Habitat Guide to Birding first surprizing points of view varied original but still credible extra dark sometimes no dreamy hippie metaphors hereI will lookor of Halpern s selections if there are and buy them all Thank you scifi doppelganger Marty Halpern presents us with an anthology of science Space Kid fiction short stories predicated on what else alienirst contact I was looking Circumstantial Evidence: Death, Life, and Justice in a Southern Town for an anthology like this In my desperationor such a thing I decided to start a rumor that John Joseph Adams currently my avorite anthologist was going to create such an anthology And to this JJA replied that Halpern had already done This So I Immediately Rushed So I immediately rushed and bought itOverall I liked it very much many stories I loved and a ew I could do without That said composite rating of all short stories an even 35Individual story reviewsThe Thought War by Paul McAuley Doesn t align well with my idea of what a Every Drop for Sale: Our Desperate Battle Over Water first contact story is but itits with a modified view of that trope within the genre It has a ew moments and the style works pretty well How to Talk to Girls at Parties by Neil Gaiman Another one that doesn t align with my idea of a irst contact story but is a great story just the same Though Gaiman gives us what is like an extended metaphor or our relationships with the opposite sex 1 than with an alternate species uaint and sentimental and not overly cloying Face Value by Karen Joy Fowler This is like what I was looking or in a Troubled Waters first contact story albeit another one that uses inter sex andor romanticriction as the anvil The Allergy-Fighting Garden: Stop Asthma and Allergies with Smart Landscaping for the theme s hammer blows That said this is a wonderfully crafted tale The Road Not Taken by Harry Turtledove A uirky take on theirst contact theme I enjoyed some of the inversions not to mention the way he explored the non linear nature of technological development as alluded to in the title 2 Turtledove s style isn t my avorite though even if I otherwise enjoyed the story The Aliens Who Knew I Mean Everything by George Alec Effinger Feels like another inversion of what I think of as a irst contact story like the preceding short story only rom the human point of view and without an alien race that s into conuerin This is a hard book to review While some stories are good it takes me orever to push myself to start a new story after I Shadower finished “An anthology which serves as an excellent snapshot of modern SF” The Guardian We are not alone From War of the Worlds to Invasion of the Body Snatchers ET to Close Encounters creators of scienceiction have always eagerly speculated on just
