SCIENCE FICTION SHORT STORY COMPENDIUM REVIEW: Solaris Rising 3 - Ed Ian Whates
Release Date: 14/08/14
Following the exceptionally well received Solaris Rising 1, 1.5 (e-only) and the Philip K. Dick Award-nominated Solaris Rising 2, series editor Ian Whates brings even more best selling and cutting edge SF authors together for the latest extraodrinary volume of new orginal ground-breaking stories. These stories are guaranteed to surprise, thrill and delight, and continue our mission to demonstrate why science fiction remains the most exiting, varied and inspiring of all fiction genres. In Solaris Rising 1 and 2 we showed both the quality and variety that modern science fiction can produce. In Solaris Rising 3, we'll be taking SF into the outer reaches of the universe. Aliette de Bodard, Tony Ballantyne, Julie Czerneda, Ken Liu, Alex Dally McFarlane, Gareth L Powell, Adam Roberts, Cat Sparks, Benjanun Sriduangkaew, Ian Watson, and Sean Williams are just some of the exciting names set to appear.
In a modern world where we travel seems to take a huge chunk out of our day, having a book that you can dip into with great writing, tiop notch authors alongside a good price seems like a dream come true and for me, Solaris, is a publisher who delivers on this.
Within this book, author and editor Ian Whates presents the readers with a plethora of stories that will suit all tastes and also gives reader the cracking opportunity to try authors that they may not have had the possibility to beforehand. All round a cracking offering and one that will, with the solid prose alongside pace, generates a book that was a pure joy to read. Great stuff.
