Anthologies Reviews

Charles Stross. Toast – and other rusted futures. Cosmos Books, 2002

An excellent collection of stories. Little in the way of the standard SF tropes – all near-future tales showing an at times pessimistic view of where we are heading as a race and what that will mean for humanity as a whole and individuals on a personal level. Excellent writing and with only two or three exceptions, SF of the highest order.
