Review of Edge of Infinity at Stainless Steel Droppings

I usually don’t link to reviews or commentary on my books here, but there have been three really nice reviews of Edge of Infinity that I want to mention. Carl V. Anderson has just reviewed the book on his blog, Stainless Steel Droppings, calling it one of the best science fiction anthologies he has ever read, Lois Tilton at Locus Online called is “a superior anthology” in her review, and late last year long-time friend of Coode Street Paul Weimer gave it a very strong review at SF Signal. I’m delighted they all enjoyed the book as much as they did.

You can read Elizabeth Bear’s terrific short story “The Deeps of the Sky” from Edge of Infinity over at io9.com. It’s available from, as they say, all good bookstores (including Stefen’s Books, if you want a signed copy!).

I’m also delighted to be working on a third “Infinity” book, Reach for Infinity, for my great friends at Solaris Books. Where Engineering Infinity was a pure hard SF book looking out in the universe around us, and Edge of Infinity covered the time when we have spread out through the Solar System, Reach for Infinity will be about mankind’s first steps out into the Solar System around us. I think it should be something special. It’s due out in mid-2014 and will post more information on it here as we get closer to the time of publication.

The second Eclipse Online story for 2013, “The Amnesia Helmet” by F. Brett Cox, has just been published. This compelling story about a young girl who in inspired by a Buck Rogers movie is beautifully illustrated by Kathleen Jennings. Cox is a fine short story writer, and I’m very pleased that I am able to feature his work on Eclipse Online this month.
