What does the future hold? This compelling anthology features science fiction's best writers and most vivid imaginations. 

Truly successful science fiction does two things: it gives a credible glimpse into the future while entertaining the reader. With this in mind, noted anthologist Jonathan Strahan asked sixteen of today's most inventive, compelling writers to look past the horizon of the present day. From spaceships, to suburbia, simulated gaming worlds, dealing with cloning, battle tactics, or corporate politics, the stories of The Starry Rift will give every reader something to consider.

Fabulous! I often dream of writing my own short stories. But writing is much harder for me than it looks. Maybe I'll follow in Mr. Strahan's footsteps and become an anthologist (is that a word?). The beautiful thing about anthologies is that you end up reading stories you would probably not just pick up on your own. I loved "Anda's Game", but I'm not really into the WOW world, so it would not have been at the top of my list in novel form. I also enjoyed The Dust Assassin and the Surfer. This is a great read for the YA crowd. I would recommend it for ages 10 and up.

THE STARRY RIFT is truly a collection of stories about today's ideals, dreams, and philosophies. Strahan did an amazing job collecting stories written by modern science fiction masters. The authors write beautifully, uniquely, and intriguingly.

This anthology is masterful in representing different worlds and conceptions of worlds, covering everything from the real world to gaming to dreaming. The exploration of themes in the book cover everything from philosophy to the growing epidemic of obesity, from what is truly important to a person to who is truly important to a person, and from world economics to love.

It is a book that really looks at the human spirit with hope and sees the future as a reality. Each story draws the reader in and makes them a part of the tale. There is a story for virtually every mood and topic one can come up with. Overall, it is a beautiful anthology.
