Classic Science Fiction Lives AgainI am known to be picky about science fiction A baby boomer I long for the classic styles of Asimov and friends Other stories I've read by Seth Chambers have always made me feel like there was hope for the genre that classic style science fiction was not dead The stories in this book blew me away Stories that make you think that make you wonder and even scare you a bit I highly recommend this anthology It's real science fiction I enjoyed reading this anthology The prose is great The stories are humorous serious and unsettling Chambers does a good job of making machines come alive However Many of the humans in these stories seem muted their emotional highs too low and their lows too high almost as if in trying to make the machines seem human the humans became machine like Panic Button Ars Poetica and She Has a Lovely Voice were my favorites
