Book Review: Eclipse One edited by Jonathan Strahan

In his introduction, editor Jonathan Strahan points out that he was looking for a very broad definition of science fiction and fantasy, and this volume certainly fulfils that brief. The scope is so broad in fact that several of the stories were barely speculative at all. If you’re looking for high fantasy and space opera then you’ll likely be disappointed. All of the stories are well-written, but I obviously have a very different taste to the editor as I didn’t find many of them very entertaining or satisfying. There were a few that I did enjoy.
