Ction and Fantasy gathers together new science fiction and fantasy stories by the best writers working today You can see that in Eclipse 1 which features extraordinary tales by Peter S Beagle Jack Dann Paul Brandon Terry Dowling Andy Duncan Jeffrey Ford Kathleen Ann Goonan Eileen Gunn Gwyneth Jones Ellen Klages Maureen F McHugh Garth Nix Lucius Shepard Bruce Sterling and Ysabeau S WilceSkyhorse Publishing under our Night Shade and Talos imprints is proud to publish a broad ran The editor states that his goal for this anthology was to recreate the spirit of the original anthology series of the 1960s and 1970s using contemporary types of stories The cover calls it New Science Fiction and Fantasy and while there is uite a bit of the fantasy there is precious little of the science fiction Most of the writers are big names in post 1980s science fiction and fantasy The stories in this series did not for the most part catch my fancy Two of them the first one by Andy Duncan and the last by Lucius Shepard were neither science fiction nor fantasy but just plain old ordinary fiction The few science fiction stories apart from one were all near future neo realist pieces that thus also had the feeling of being plain old fiction Kathleen Ann Goonan s Electric Rains was typical in this regard about a girl in a post apocalyptic Washington DC trying to take her grandmother s dead body to the cemetery without herself getting killed A good number of the stories are urban fantasies with a slightly satirical edge to them Bad Luck Trouble Death and Vampire Sex by Garth Nix is typical of these amusing pieces about a man on the run hopping through dimensions using some off kilter magic Peter S Beagle s The Last and Only or Mr Moskowitz Becomes French is another amusingly off kilter piece this one about a Jewish American who becomes French than French people to the dismay of his long suffering wife The Tansformation of Targ by Paul Brandon and Jack Dann to me was the most amusing of these It tells about an evil War Lord from a hellish dimension who is seeking career advice because well he just doesn t feel like being evil any The one story of science fiction that really stretches the imagination is Bruce Sterling s The Lustration an intriguingly different take on the Gaia hypothesis on a planet where the humans are lizard bird people who have developed a sophisticated computer technology based on the principles of the abacus The remaining stories are competently written but to my taste lacked imaginative flair In sum the collection has decent reading but feels too close to home
