    My uest to read randomly has brought little reward thus far I had great hope that was about to change after reading the immensely enjoyable first few stories in this collection These stories could be described as having a counterfactual or future history bent if one knows what those terms mean and if one does one should explain them to me The middle stories leaned toward sci fi and the last few leaned toward just plain old short stories Although the writing was still good I enjoyed these stories far less leading me to believe I might be a counterfactual kind of guy

    It was really interesting to read this collection of short stories from Kim Stanley Robinson's early years Here he marries his usual literary science fiction style with his musings on how we see history It covers alternative histories future scenarios and the concept of nostalgia Many of these stories are set in fantastic places drowned Venice a slow moving terminator city on Mercury a Dixie land revival band in the outer planets Robinson really knows how to evoke a scene and stuff the reader right down into the head of the protagonists Up to the same standards of his Mars Trilogy I read this one mainly before heading off on my big trip around the Indian Ocean having got it for my birthday from my excellent aunty Su but finished it while taking a sick day from work down at Inverloch

    It took me ages to get into this book The first three stories had me pretty grouchy Then from The Lucky Strike onwards they just got better and better It may have been my expectation of 'spacey' sci fi that put me on the wrong track The last 5 or so stories were brilliant I missed tram stops reading them
