    Great anthology of Twilight Zone-ish stories.

    If you like stories with a good twist, and yet in the realm of fantasy/sci fi, this is a great collection. Two standouts are "Understand", and "Hell is the absence of God". As a Christian, I must say the latter story really blew my mind. Some may consider it blasphemous in a fashion, but in some ways it correlates with certain beliefs within Christianity. It will get you thinking one way or the other.

    Great Read

    This was a great read. Definitely worth the money spent. As with all short story collections, some stories were better than others. However, not a single story was awful.

    Good science fiction shorts are particularly difficult to come by as the author has to display a certain amount of knowledge about a subject without getting too heavy on the exposition. Mr. Chiang seems to know how to weave the science into the storytelling quite deftly.
