    1. Thought-provoking scenarios with fully-fleshed characters. These are terrific stories, and I dare you to stop at just one. Smeds writes the best kind of science fiction, in which the impact of possible technological changes resonate on a very personal level with society and individuals. His characters are fully realized, with believable human strengths and weaknesses that set off dramas played out in creative and surprising settings. As with his fantasy stories, Smeds shows his empathy for femal [...]

    2. The stories are consistently interesting and well written and I liked that some of them had common threads running through them so that it was possible to become familiar with the future that the stories represented. My only real gripe was the introductions at the start of each story which I thought were quite unnecessary.I don't think it is a book I would normally read from cover to cover but it is one that I would keep on the shelf to dip into when I have some spare time.

    3. I'm not really into speculative fiction, nut this was a good read. Each story is introduced by the writers thoughts about the premise for the story, something that I quite liked.For the Stories themself, most was quite enjoyable. Some I did feel could do with a little more flesh, since a few felt like reading a "few" chapters in the story, where you miss chapter one and the last chapter, Suicidal Tendencies was one that felt a bit shortBut over all it doesn't distract from the stories

    4. 3.5 StarsA collection of traditional Sci-fi short stories, each with an interesting introduction. If you like Philip K. Dick or pulp magazine SFF, you will probably like this book. I like "Suicidal Tendencies" (dark humor) and "Evaporation" (think Charlton Heston in Planet of the Apes) but "Fearless" is my favorite. LT Early Reviewers
