The story "A Billion Eves" by Robert Reed is outstanding. The rest of the stories are good but this is one of those stories that I will think about for a long long time. ( )

Nice read once I got past the first tale, "Another Word for Map is Faith" by Rich Horton. This story is as subtle as a brick to the head.

The rest of the book is enjoyable, but three stories stood out to me:

"Saving for a Sunny Day" by Ian Watson, is a well crafted tale of how artificial intelligence and religion combine to make the world a better place.

"Incarnation Day" by William Jon Williams, is the story of a group children being raised in an artificial environments created by the metaphorical soccer moms and dads of the future.

Finally, "Me-Topia" by Adam Roberts does a really great job of world building a future where homo sapiens have left a wrecked Earth to our genetically resurrected cousins, the Neanderthals. I would be interested to see other stories set in this universe. ( )
