I first heard about this one on the late, lamented Unshelved Book Club. The description of this collection of science fiction stories reminded me of the stories from the 50s and 60s that were my introduction to the genre--stories that optimistically presented a future where science opened the door to wonder, adventure, and a better way of life. This is a collection of modern tales that tries to capture that same spirit. ("No dystopias allowed," as the reviewer phrased it) Unlike the tales of my youth, the stories were very Earth-centric. There was only one that spent a lot of time in space. Instead, these tales explored things like the environmental and social realms of science. And they did it very well, capturing the sense of wonder which enticed me all those years ago. Check it out!
