Comprehensive Review by SF Signal of
The Solaris Book of New Science Fiction

I love it when a reviewer takes the time to say something about EVERY story in an anthology. John of SF Signal does a nifty job with The Solaris Book of New Science Fiction edited by George Mann. Makes me wanna buy it, if only to read those fully-starred stories among the sixteen original tales, as well as the one called "Personal Jesus" about the godPods.

Why another anthology?

Well:

Perhaps more important to regular short fiction readers is the publication of a promising new anthology that doesn't add to the already-crowded "Best of..." or themed anthology set, but instead offers a various sampling of what the science fiction genre can accomplish. There are indeed many "gems" here. Standout stories included "C-Rock City" by Jay Lake & Greg van Eekhout, "The Bowdler Strain" by James Lovegrove, "Last Contact" by Stephen Baxter and "Third Person" by Tony Ballantyne.
