Présentation de l'éditeur

Monsters! Alien invasions! Lost Worlds! Mad Scientists! Secret Histories!

In the seventeen stories collected here, multiple award-winning author Paul McAuley takes a fresh look at staple themes spanning science fiction, horror, and alternate history. A hero who once helped repel an alien invasion, ruined by self-doubt after his bruising experiences in the eye of the media, must try to save the world all over again. Best-selling author Philip K. Dick confronts Richard Nixon and a conspiracy that has taken control of America. A book dealer discovers strange and dangerous rivals on the far side of the internet. A science-fiction fan explains why he became a serial killer. And in 'Cross Roads Blues', the course of American history hangs on the decision of an itinerant musician.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An author of immense versatility and wonder 8 décembre 2011

A very good collection at 3.50. McAuley has an effortless advanced competence, or so it seems when you are reading. Also a massive range, being able to produce work from interesting occult detectives to the more low rent lowest common denominator Michael Crichton type science fiction thriller.

Luckily for us he chooses to turn his attention to science fiction most of the time where his large talent for advanced speculation can continually delight and amaze us with what he comes up with, including a particular fondness for advanced biology. Plenty of strange aliens.

This is the exact opposite of a garden variety major publisher hugely overpriced volume. This is a fantastic price (e.g. 2.99 currently) and extremely high quality.

Buy it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Review of Paul McAuley's Little Machines 19 juin 2013
Par Kyle - Publié sur Amazon.com

Paul McAuley, author of The Quiet War series, offers a diverse and interesting collection of short stories, Little Machines, containing examples of science fiction, fantasy and horror, almost all of which are cleverly written and entertaining. My two favorites bookend the collection, The Two Dicks and Cross Road Blues. They are both excellent and intriguing stories of 'what if' and 'what the...' that leave the reader looking at their world a little differently. While the rest are enjoyable, I wasn't that impressed with Under Mars, though your mileage may vary. Overall it is a great collection, and one that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys speculative fiction, and especially to those who are already fans of McAuley's other works.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent collection for the money - some great reads in here 11 mai 2013

This is a 4-star collection with a few 5-star gems in it. I previously gave this 3 stars but decided this was unfair, due to my subjective dislike of some of the subject matter.

Really enjoyed about 1/3rd of this collection. There is some excellent writing, and both entertaining and clever storytelling here. Another 1/3rd was fun fiction. I completely skipped roughly another 1/3rd as soon as it smacked of Alt History.

Negative note: I cannot stand historical fiction. Real history is too abundantly rich already - there are so many amazing stories to tell. Making up fake alternate history that never happened seems to me like one of the most masturbatory things a writer can do. I'm sure it was good for them, but keep it to yourself.

Interweaving a possible history, along the way of telling a real history, a'la Cryptonomicon - I am down with. Making up random history? Just annoys the crap out of me. So, if you relate, you will find some fluff in here.

For $2 or $3 bucks here on Amazon though you cannot go wrong. You will definitely get your money's worth.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 I give it a "17"... 6 février 2013

I liked McCauley's Quiet War stuff, found this, and enjoyed it. This collection is sci-fiction in a range of topics and varied treatments. Nice reads for travel or lunchtime, worth twice the price.

I enjoyed some more than others, but none were poorly done or disorganized. Some were more character study while others were plots in motion. McCauley handles tech smartly and creates complex but belief-suspense-able plots. My favorite: "17" - reminded me of Elizabeth Moon's Kylara Vatta character.

McCauley is readable, tech-skilled, and entertaining. If you are looking for tech-smart sci-fi, give McCauley a try.
