The Title Tells You EVERYTHING You Need to Know!
Michael Swanwick is one of the masters of short-form science fiction and fantasy. This book is an outstanding introduction to his short fiction, and it's worth recommending just for that reason alone. But it also contains some seriously thought-provoking, mind-bending and FUN stories. Swanwick never forgets to put some fun and playfulness into every story, regardless of how deadly serious the stories sometimes get. If I have one criticism of THE BEST OF MICHAEL SWANWICK it is that fully half of the stories in the book appeared in TALES OF OLD EARTH and THE DOG SAID BOW-WOW. But it's really great to have them in a more permanent hardcover format. (And if you haven't read either of his novels called THE IRON DRAGON'S DAUGHTER or THE DRAGONS OF BABEL, you seriously have a real treat waiting for you!)Was this review helpful?
