Excellent post by G. McKee over at SF GOSPEL as he reviews some of the stories in THE SOLARIS BOOK OF NEW SCIENCE FICTION.
That's a volume I've put in and deleted from my amazon shopping cart several times. I've wanted to read the godPod story for a while now, and it intrigues me that I'd heard it had many stories dealing with faith/religion. But I figured it would deal with them in a way sure to make me blow steam out of my ears, so I vacillated.
Still, the review makes me want to get a copy. If I hadn't just binged at the Yale Sale thanks to Elliot's link, I might do so now.
Maybe if I wait till next year, I can get it used for five bucks, used. :)
His remarks on "Last Contact," though, well, I may need to shopping cart it yet again.
Anyway, do drop by SF Gospel. It's a terrific site with a very smart postmeister. (Even if I think he's too rough on the megachurches. It's just to easy to diss them, you know. Almost cliche.)
