This group of stories showes how scary human cloning would be. I don't think it would be wise to clone people, but if it can be done, someone will do it. One of my favorate stories was The Replacement Husband. I loved the ironic twist at end. The Vandel was also good, with a lot of interesting questions about what makes people the way they are.
"Clones: The Anthology" is a collection of great tales from many authors. I don't get to review as much science fiction as I'd like to. This is a very good collection...each story has a different aspect about cloning to explore. The stories really dig at some deep questions about existence, memories, and reality. Many of the stories could be made into a TV series. I would read all of these authors again.
Title: Clones: The Antholoty Author: Many Genre: Sci-Fi Format: Ebook Pages: 256 Rating: 4.5 Heat: 0 Thoughts: This was a great collection of little clone stories that made you think about the pros and cons of cloning. There were stories that were very futuristic, scary, and had very probable issues that could arise if we did clone people. I really enjoyed the twists that some of them had and the arguments for and against following this path of technology. I think this would be a great book for discussions, like book clubs, since so many different ideas are brought to light in each story. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
It's been a long time since I've read an anthology and liked each of the novellas included. I wasn't sure what to expect with this anthology and I found each of the short stories by turns intriguing, thought-provoking, and/or disturbing. In fact, I couldn't put it down. Confessional, broken into three parts, also breaks up the anthology. As your first introduction to the anthology, Part I certainly sets the tone. It also ends the anthology beautifully. Since each of the stories included are true short stories, I hesitate to describe each one, for fear of spoiling someone. I was impressed that each of these authors were able to write a fully realized short story - which is not an easy task. Even my least favorite of them - The Vandal - made an interesting philosophical argument. The stories run the gamut in exploring the concept of clones and it was refreshing to see how the authors took the theme and ran with it, often in ways that at first glance have nothing to do with clones. If you have any interest in speculative fiction when it comes to clones, this is an anthology for you. NB: I received a copy of the anthology in exchange for an honest review. This didn't affect my opinion in any way.
