I was excited upon stumbling across this collection of sci-fi; my favorite sub-genre of both sci-fi and literature is utopian/dystopian fiction. However, the stories were nearly consistently weak and rambling, despite the accolades afforded them in the preface to each piece. I added a star, however, because the worlds imagined were creative and a bit startling, through-and-through; too bad the authors, for the most part, didn't deliver. ( )

What the title suggests, is what this book gives. This is a selection of science fiction stories with Utopian settings, taken from Asimov's Science Fiction magazine. Generally a fairly high quality, this batch with the pick of the litter perhaps being Bruce Sterling's story.
