    1. Old Music and the Slave Woman Ursula K LeGuin.Yes, I checked this book out from the library because I saw that it had a LeGuin story I hadn t read before And yes, this alone was worth the price of admission Well, since it was from the library there wasn t a price, but, you know Set in the world of the Ekumen The egalitarian interplanetary alliance has come to this corner of the galaxy Ideas of freedom have spread, causing riots and rebellion in a society based on racial slavery An ambassador of [...]

    2. This book of science fiction short stories from 1999 was not quite what I expected There are many science fiction writers who have created whole new worlds and galaxies and concepts through a series of novels This collection consists of stories from those same authors, dealing with some aspect or facet of the worlds they created Thus, besides being a great read, these stories are a great introduction to those science fiction novel series that I haven t read yet.In a review of short stories, I ca [...]

    3. Gran idea de partida, resultados discutibles G nero Relatos.Lo que nos cuenta Recopilaci n de once relatos, escritos para esta antolog a coordinada por Silverberg que tambi n participa con un texto , que retoman sagas o l neas narrativas bastante conocidas en la Ciencia Ficci n de la mano de sus respectivos autores para ofrecer visiones de aspectos no tratados en las mismas o para a adir algo m s a eventos o personajes ya conocidos en sus p ginas incluye una breve introducci n al universo al que [...]

    4. Novellas and short stories from some of the greatest science fiction worlds of all time I love some of these worlds, so it is great to revisit them, but unfortunately, it is not a good starting point for the series I m unfamiliar with the intro to most gives a synopsis of the plots of the books in the series including spoilers I m bouncing through the book reading stories as the mood hits Ones read so far are in bold UPDATE I ve decided not to finish the entire book I don t want to read the stor [...]

    5. This is an interesting anthology format that succeeds on all levels of reader appreciation.Bring together a group of well respected Science Fiction authors who have created classic series But as the editor Robert Silverberg explains it is just not about another story with familiar characters but a story that may have not been told or further and deeper exploration of a character.This is very successfully done by the authors And the bonus for the reader is that if you have read any of the series [...]

    6. The best story, by Gregory Benford, about the center of the universe and the alien that made art out of mangled, still living, human bodies.Most of the rest were like samples of books that belonged to trilogies, or side stories to them If you already read these and loved them, then maybe you d like this I think this was the format, but I didn t know what was going on.

    7. This is one of the few short story compilations that I liked, probably also because most of the stories were related to series I ve read It also made me add a couple series to my to read list, so it was definitely worth it.

    8. A great collection of sci fi stories and novellas by some of the best ever sci fi writers Now I have to go read all of Ursula LeGuin s books and Robert Silverberg s too.

    9. Excellent anthology, with some excellent and some not so bad works.My favorite authors in this work Ursula K Le Guin, Joe Haldeman and, Dan Simmons.

    10. Old Music and Slave Women passado no universo Ekumen de Ursula K LeGuin, este conto surpreende pela subtileza da autora na invers o de pap is Acompanhamos as desventuras de um astuto embaixador da organiza o gal ctica num planeta consumido por uma guerra civil A sociedade planet ria imaginada por LeGuin decalcada no sul americano dos tempos do esclavagismo e a guerra civil um conflito sem quartel entre a sociedade esclavagista e os antigos escravos e seus apoiantes, que lutam pela aboli o do abe [...]

    11. This was a very interesting collection of short stories and novellas, very different in type than any other short story collection I ve read before Each of them were long enough to probably be considered a novella, so that already set it apart from most short story collections And in particular, every story was part of a larger pre existing series of science fiction books For some of these stories that was really great, because I ve already ready part or all of the series they pertained to, and [...]

    12. Reading this for me was time traveling A collection published in 1999 of revisits to worlds originally imagined from 1966 to 1998 The original worlds, where I did visit them, where around the year of publication, so everyone was fresh to me at the time and my reaction was time bound or time reflective I am not now who I was then Having said that I found my responses to these re visits to old landscapes interesting.Le Guin s Ecumen is like visiting a different part of a continent, through a tale [...]

    13. First and last stories were extremely difficult to follow Idk if I would have liked them better had I already read Le Guin and Bear The other stories were pretty good Bear s story was kind of stomach churning horror, as was a rather similar one by another author I forget which The one about machine intelligences Though that describes two or three of these All in all I would recommend you only read these if you ve read and enjoyed the world each author previously wrote.

    14. While I enjoyed all of these stories, I don t have the background in any of the worlds but Orson Scott Card s to truly really like any of the other stories.

    15. 2 stars only bcuz I don t know many of the worlds written in Good writing Just not something I particularly like.

    16. Ik heb dit boek al vele jaren k Had het vooral voor Dan Simmons verhaal gekocht, omdat zijn Hyperion boeken me heel erg bevallen hebben Maar goed, na al die jaren ben ik er nog niet in geslaagd deze compilatie uit te lezen, hoofdzakelijk wegens wisselende interesses en tijdsbestedingen.In ieder geval, deze recensie is nog NIET afgerond, ik zet hier wel al wat ik tot nu toe van het boek vond.1 Ursula K Le Guin DE OECUMENE OUDE MUZIEK EN DE SLAVINNENAlgemeen gezien nodigt het wel uit tot verdere e [...]

    17. Far Horizons will be most interesting to fans of certain series Unfortunately the only series in the lot that I am familiar with is the Ursula K Le Guin story Old Music and the Slave Woman from the Ekumen books and even it fell short of expectations.The other stories included are 2 A Separate War by Joe Halderman an author I haven t read before This story is a parallel story to his novel The Forever War It covers the theme of the military being the lesser of the two evils after a lifetime of fig [...]

    20. I bought this book because it contained short stories set in the universes of several series I had read and loved In addition to enjoying those stories, I used this book as sort of a science fiction education for myself I tracked down all the books in every other series in this book and read those as well Thanks to this book, I found tons of other great reading material.Jeers to Silverberg, not merely for including one of his own stories in here, but for including a story that was not based on a [...]

    21. Very good to outstanding stories, all set in the various author s universes Many anthologies produce one or two really good stories, a few good stories, and the rest is filler, but in this one, Silverberg collected stories from top flight authors and didn t let anyone coast on their laurels I m sure that any science fiction aficionado will be able to argue that their favorite author of the time should have been included over one of those who actually made it in, but such arguments are both the g [...]

    22. out of all the stories in this collection i was only bored by one, and absolutely loved three the rest were fun to read it has a pretty good variety for an anthology based solely on space fantasy my favorites were Old Music and the Slave Woman , The Boy Who Would Live Forever and The Investment Counselor The latter is by Orson Scott Card and a very cute snapshot from his Ender series.If you ve read any of the authors included in this collection Card, Le Guin, Silverberg, McCaffrey, etc I definit [...]

    23. Most of these authors I ve never read Almost all of them managed to hold my attention, even if none of them captivated my interest enough to pursue their series further.My favourite is the first, Le Guin s Old Music and the Slave Women A provoking piece about how the reality of change and freedom are not at all free to live through Highly recommended.The rest I could take or leave I liked Ender s piece but it wasn t revelatory, just fun.

    24. If you like the worlds created by these authors, ie the Ecumen by LeGuin, the Uplift Universe by Brin, or the universe of Ender s Game Then these are some fun stories to read Not essential Not earth shattering But a fun addition.

    25. I know so many of these worlds that this was fun from start to finish Le Guin, Kress, Haldeman, Benford, some of these were absolutely brilliant Some I m looking at you Simmons , not so much, but a definite must read if you have the background in these series.

    26. Dan Simmons Orphans of the Helix was the only story in this compilation that I could say I truly loved Most of the others were mediocre, a few were wastes of time.
