"O Happy Day!" by Geoff Ryman is perhaps too vile of a cautionary tale for me, while "Red Card" by S.L. Gilbow, "Ten with a Flag" by Joseph Paul Haines, "The Funeral" by Kate Wilhelm, and "Amaryllis" by Carrie Vaughn are all wonderful stories by writers that I have never read before. To that point, the recommended further reading lists at the end are an excellent final touch.
I now wish that I had a copy for my bookshelf, because the Kindle edition has a two big problems.:
1. It was not made clear on the Amazon page for the Kindle edition that four stories (by J.G. Ballard, Ray Bradbury, Philip K. Dick, and Kurt Vonnegut) were omitted from the digital version. The author or publisher inserted a clever dig at the rights holders of these stories on the digital copyright page, which I chuckled at and do appreciate, but had I known these stories were omitted, I would have purchased a paperback copy instead.
2. There is no table of contents, which means that you cannot easily skip stories or read them out of order. A table of contents with links to the starting page of each story is a very important element in electronic versions of long anthologies like this! Want to re-read that one story that really surprised you? You'd better remember the title or the name of the author so you can run a search for it.
4 stars for the collection/3 for the kindle edition.
The one thing I found annoying was how much time the author spent telling you about each author and what awards they won and were nominated for. Some were long and boring before ending with a cool little comment about the up coming story itself.
I felt the comments telling me what to expect were well written and added to the book as a whole, but most of the rest stating which awards and how many each author achieved over their lifetime would have been better put in a separate section in the back of the book providing the info for those interested while not boring those of us just looking to read a good story.
Bottom line it is a great collection of dystopian fiction and well worth getting.
