Clarke; Bruce Sterling; Charles Stross; Cory Doctorow; Greg Bear; Gregory Benford; Oliver Morton; Ian Macleod; Rudy Rucker; Greg Egan; Stephan Baxter; Frederik Pohl; Vernor Vinge; Nancy Kress, Michael Moorcock, Vonda N. McIntyre; Kim Stanley Robinson; John M. Ford; and 79 more.

レビュー

“The stories are just the right length for those brief interludes with which life abounds. They come from a highly respectable science journal (Hey, "Nature "published the Watson & Crick paper that spelled out the structure of DNA and won a Nobel Prize).Therefore, QED, this SF is highly respectable too! It won’t a hurt a bit that the stories are good as well.”
"—Analog
"“Worthwhile for anyone. A satisfying selection…occasionally quite profound. This book does just what we hope for.”
"—Locus" (Rich Horton)
“Giant leaps into the future in delectably palatable tiny packages.”
"—Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

5つ星のうち 4.0 Natural Flash 2015/1/5
投稿者 John M. Ford - (Amazon.com)

Nature is a well-known and well-respected science magazine. As editor Henry Gee notes, "...many, perhaps most, of the scientific discoveries that have shaped the world (and the minds of science fiction authors) first appeared as research papers in Nature's pages." Beginning in 1999 and for several years after, Nature also included short works of science fiction. This well-received feature hosted a range of authors, from `names' in the genre to an eleven-year-old first-time author.

This book collects ninety-seven of these short science fiction stories. Ten of my favorites:

Brenda Cooper's "My Grandfather's River" is about a home-made present from a granddaughter to her grandfather. It's a piece of the past.

Paul Di Filippo's "The Perfect Lover" is another take on that scene where two lovers run toward each other in slow motion across an open field, arms spread wide.

David Eagleman's "A Brief History of Death Switches" describes what Earth will be like after humankind has departed. It explains the culture that will carry on without us.

Jon Courtenay Grimwood's "Take Over" shows how future society reworks the crime of identity theft.

Joe Haldeman's "Heartwired" is an enhanced love story that does not take place in a supermarket.

Peter Hamilton's "The Forever Kitten" is a story about teenagers and growing up. Or not.

Ian R. MacLeod's "Taking Good Care of Myself" is like one of those stories where someone travels back in time and kills his grandfather. Except everything is reversed.

Joan Slonczewski's "Tuberculosis Bacteria Join UN" explores one way that future politics can become more complex.

In Igor Teper's "Golden Year" we see how much Will misses his wife, Alice, who died from a lingering illness. Each anniversary he visits her recreation of the forest grove where he proposed to her years ago.

Vernor Vinge's "Win a Nobel Prize!" is about the role that concentration plays in professional success. It features an appearance of the kind of "focus" that plays a central role in the author's novel, A Deepness in the Sky.

This is a readable collection of stories with a few that are a cut above. It is a good mix of well-known and unknown authors, although the story introductions reveal that a significant subset was written by Nature staff under pen names. The length requirements, though certainly dictated by page real estate, have a positive effect. The hundred word constraints of flash fiction are loosened sufficiently to allow plot and character development and complexity while maintaining single-sitting readability.

Satisfied readers should follow this collection with the second volume of Nature science fiction, Nature Futures 2: Science Fiction from the Leading Science Journal.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Excellent for airport security lines 2008/2/18

This is a great book to dip into for a few minutes at a time. The pieces are short enough to finish in a few minutes each and they (mostly) provide decent enough food for thought. It's perfect for those times when you just need to stay somewhat engaged with your surroundings (waiting around for something to happen) but risk dying of boredom or frustration if you don't do something.

Don't think I could face reading the whole thing in one shot though....

Very interesting for those who like science fiction. The very short format causes most of the futures to be vignettes.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Perfect remedy for short attention spans ;) 2008/1/6

Having read these quite short (a page or two) stories when they came out in Nature, I can say you will enjoy them. I don't recall any that struck me with a deep fascination, but on the other end very few ended up in my mind's recycling bin. The novelty is in having so many "short short" stories compiled, allowing you to read something even with very little time on your hands, and in the nature of their authors, who weren't all science-fiction writers.

These are mostly 1-2 page stories, quick reads, but thought-provoking, and it introduces (me to) a lot of authors.
