My Review:
Although I do read some sci-fi and many times enjoy the fantasy of the writer's imagination; I just could not get into this book or the stories within.  Many of them go so far OUT there that the stories just did not flow or make much sense.  If a story does not capture my imagination and keep me engaged, it is very difficult for me to want to finish it, and that is how it was with each of the stories within this volume.  I think it would be better for Young Adult readers who don't mind working to keep up with what is going on in the story and who are willing to try very hard to figure out what the writers are trying to say.
