No. 13 - The SFWA European Hall of Fame

edited by James Morrow and Kathryn Morrow

Started: May 13
Finished: May 19

Notes:I picked this one up at my newspaper job not too long ago. It's acollection of short stories, many of which have been translated fromEuropean languages. I'm interested in this one just to get anotherperspective, to see how other cultures write their speculative fiction.And, in case you don't know, the SFWA is the Science Fiction andFantasy Writers of America, Inc.

Mini review: There are somegreat stories here. Most of them are not action oriented, but there'sdefinitely some fine literature in these pages. There were only acouple I didn't care for, which is better odds than many anthologiesI've read.
