Something exciting has been happening in modern SF. After decades of confusion, many of the field's best writers have been returning to the subgenre called, roughly, "hard SF"-science fiction focused on science and technology, often with strong adventure plots. Now, World Fantasy Award-winning editors David G. Hartwell and Kathryn Cramer present an immense, authoritative anthology that maps the development and modern-day resurgence of this form, argues for its special virtues and present preeminence-and entertains us with some spectacular storytelling along the way.Included are major stories by contemporary and classic names such as Poul Anderson, Stephen Baxter, Gregory Benford, Ben Bova, David Brin, Arthur C. Clarke, Hal Clement, Greg Egan, Joe Haldeman, Nancy Kress, Paul McAuley, Frederik Pohl, Alastair Reynolds, Kim Stanley Robinson, Robert J. Sawyer, Karl Schroeder, Charles Sheffield, Brian Stableford, Allen Steele, Bruce Sterling, Michael Swanwick, and Vernor Vinge.

"Gene Wars," by Paul Macauley (1991): 7.75
- radical honesty time: am I too stupid for sci-fi? seems possible, I mean, why wouldn't I be, non-science person I am? I guess I'm here to judge literary merits, or at least the way in which the hard sci-fi elements are translated to the lay reader--in which case, sure, good here. I liked the clear way in which our protagonist was both implicated in the dystopia around him and differentiated all at the same time, even coming, at the end of his own life, to see himself as the noble hero of his own story. Or, new theory, I'm on a train and distracted and not the best at coherently ingesting short speculative fiction at the moment].

"Wang's Carpets," by Greg Egan (1995): 9.5
- About as good, about as impressive a work as I can imagine this genre creating. And there, I don’t mean simply ‘Hard SciFi,’ so much as the general Very-Not-Humans genre, which need not be SF, necessarily (thinking of Karin Tidbeck’s deep fantasy tale in the Time Travelers book [in which an alt-universe jaded aristocracy are arbitrarily killing pages with lawn croquet balls and more], or the Michael Moorcock one in the same collection), although it is often most relevant to the so-called far-future sci-fi works, especially those dealing with post-humanism. Here, all of that is combined with the general ‘Hard’ thing, although edged throughout, and at all times, by an, if not literary, deeply humane sense of how to extrapolate emotion and response outwards from our own subjective spot. The STORY: several cloned post-humanists search for the first signs of alien life, finding what at first appears to be an interesting, if very primitive, single-cell based life form, before realizing that, in fact, it’s much more complex, and strange, than they could have imagined. All of this progresses against the backdrop of a thorough, subtle, and very skilled fleshing-out of the nature of post-human life for these beings as individuals and, more broadly, as members of post-human societies. The story is chock full of treasures along this way, such as the wonderful, and main, human-based fulcrum in the story, which is basically all about nihilism and human existential angst, even extant among now-immortal, now-near-omniscent groups. What this does, then, is take the quite literally inexplicable and make it explicable, whereas others get away with just detailing the ways in which this is actually not relatable at all (i.e. that Tidbeck, whose story I remember feeling cold to the touch and completely alien for being so devoid of humanity, although that was largely the point). Here, though, in this perfectly small story, in retrospect, the shifts turn on petty squabbles and academic points of contention.

This is a very solid and often thrilling anthology, a veritable cube of a book featuring "hard" science fiction stories from a wide range of authors and sources.

It's not perfect, but what is? Some of the stories seem decidedly less "hard" than others, the Poul Anderson offering is long, and uncharacteristically dull, the near absence of women is depressing but not surprising ... but this is all forgotten when one comes across a story like "Into the Miranda Rift," which swallowed me whole as (nearly) only great science fiction can.

Hard SF has often been associated with an equally hard Libertarian right wing political bent. Although some writers from that crew are here, this anthology is refreshingly free of stridency, the kind of "this is the way things ARE, and you will listen to ME" thing that Robert A. Heinlein was increasingly prone to as he got older.

Very good to great stuff. ( )

Having not read any science fiction in years and years I recently decided to find out what’s been going on while I’ve been away. I’m a big fan of SF on the big and small screens and will probably be buried with my Babylon 5 DVDs (NOT the fifth season!) but I felt cut off from the source due to my ignorance of the current literature. All my books from the old days were gone, gone, gone: no more Heinlein, Dick, Herbert, Bradbury, Zelazny, Asimov, Sturgeon, etc. So it was into the Wikipedia I went to look up Hugo Award and Nebula Award to get me started working up a list of names I could take to the library and bookstore. Some of the fruit of that ongoing labor can be seen in my library… some already got the Deep 6 (Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, anything by Neal Stephenson. I’ve never been tempted by Harry Potter).

Then there’s this book. I LOVE “massive tomes” and this is one of the massiveist! I had no idea what “hard” science fiction was when I bought it but as soon as I read a few of the stories I knew this was for me... big time! I want to feel that the SF I’m reading could happen. I want to find the concepts I read about in journals like Science and Nature expanded into wild possibilities. I want a story so convincing that I will suspend my disbelief that the "gee-whiz" stuff of today could be tomorrow's mundane reality. I’ll be reading for some time to come on the leads provided by this book. ( )

960 small-print pages with 41 short stories, mostly by front-rank SF (never say "sci-fi") authors.
