Rezensionen
Praise for The Final Frontier "Clarke's stellar reprint anthology explores the expansive variety of space exploration stories. . . . Outstanding works in which extreme environments bring out the best and worst of human nature."- Publishers Weekly , Starred Review " Twenty one fascinating tales from some of science fiction's new stars. The reprint collection is multicultural and diverse, with tales of all kinds and from some unusual places. . . . Many standouts in this one and likely something here for all sorts of different kinds of folks. "-Manhattan Book Review, 4.5/5 Stars " A miniature version of the many-voiced conversation that is the SF genre . . . There's life in the old genre yet. "- Locus Magazine Praise for Neil Clarke's Anthologies with Night Shade Books "Readers should savor the stories a few at a time to get the most out of Clarke's superior selections . . . but there are no inferior pieces here. This is a fine, thoughtful book. " - Publishers Weekly , starred review for Not One of Us "Well-known SF authors grace this . . . top-notch selection of imaginative and thought-provoking stories. " - Kirkus Reviews , starred review for More Human Than Human "Clarke's stellar reprint anthology explores the expansive variety of space exploration stories. . . . Outstanding works in which extreme environments bring out the best and worst of human nature." - Publishers Weekly , Starred Review for The Final Frontier "Twenty one fascinating tales from some of science fiction's new stars . The reprint collection is multicultural and diverse , with tales of all kinds and from some unusual places. . . . Many standouts in this one and likely something here for all sorts of different kinds of folks ." -Manhattan Book Review, 4.5/5 Stars for The Final Frontier "This hefty anthology of imperial SF covers great space battles, small dramas within an empire, hopeless bureaucracy, and even living space stations , zooming in and out to capture every nuance . . . The diverse array of stories ensures that there's plenty of interest for any fan of large-scale SF." - Publishers Weekly on Galactic Empires " Masterful editor Neil Clarke has assembled an exotic, bountiful treasure chest of reprint tales dedicated to that mode of SF that can arguably be said to constitute the very core of the field , the space opera." - Asimov's on Galactic Empires "Clarke has assembled a wide range of authors - from old masters like Robert Silverberg to more recent talents such as Aliette De Bodard - each offering a different take on the central premise. . . There isn't a bad piece amongst them . . . the Galaxy really is there for the taking." - Starburst on Galactic Empires, reviewed by Alister Davison "As editor Clarke points out in his introduction, when most people hear the term galactic empire, they immediately picture Darth Vader and Star Wars. But there is a long history of star-faring empires in the genre, with stories that imagine our human tendencies to explore and conquer among the stars . . . . The stories gathered here, all of which have appeared elsewhere, show the huge range of possibilities of the chosen theme ." - Library Journal on Galactic Empires "The first must-read anthology of the year , no question, is Neil Clarke's Galactic Empires , an ambitious (read: huge ) collection of SF tales featuring far-flung confederations in the stars. The TOC is a who's-who of virtually everyone doing important work at short length in science fiction ." -John O'Neil, Black Gate on Galactic Empires " Brings together some of the best voices writing in the genre today. . . . a stunning collection of short fiction ." - WorldsInInk on Galactic Empires…mehr
