Like most anthologies, this is a mixed bag - a few great pieces and some mediocre ones. Robinson's notes are thoughtful, and I thought the inclusion of poetry was ambitious, if not successful. Particularly good were the R.A. Lafferty story "Boomer Flats" and Robert Silverberg's "House of Bones". ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312863500, Paperback)

Kim Stanley Robinson has long been known for his excellent science fiction novels such as Red Mars, Blue Mars, and Green Mars. Here he turns his hand toward editing, with a collection of stories by writers like Ursula K. Le Guin, Gene Wolfe, Pat Murphy, and Terry Bisson. These are stories of a future where "wet" technology has replaced "hard": silicon chips have given way to DNA strands, and the industrial high tech has been subsumed by environmental high tech. While all of these fine stories have been printed elsewhere, collected together they comprise a formidable and fascinating look at a future full of ectopias.
