Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
The Universe is vast, with many challenges, but will we be overcome by the forces that oppose us? Will we need to reshape ourselves, and become something new and strange? Will we even recognize our own descendants? The stories in this first volume of the Antares Anthology explore these wide-ranging issues and many more. Some suggest solutions, others raise more questions. Each provides a Glimpse of an uncertain future where Humanity strives to achieve its destiny, or perish in the attempt. Hinc itur ad astra - From here, the path to the stars.

The rest of the stories were rather hit-or-miss, with a few I just couldn't drag myself through.
There was a definite lack of thematic focus, with only Kobernus' final story really matching the suggested theme of the cover image and the blurb.
So here we go!
Generally, with an anthology, you can expect some good stories, some not so good, and some plain bad.
Not here though.
There are about 14 contributors, and the stories range in length from 3000, to 11,000 words. (So, if you like a quicky, that is good. But if you want to get your teeth into something, then you certainly have something to look forward to here!)
Remarkably, there are no really weak stories in the anthology. They are all well deserving of their place.
One of my favourite of the shorter stories is 'Yara.' A simply beautiful tale about an android. I read that one several times.
I also loved the rather Kafkesque nature of 'Indrid Cold.' It was wacky and odd, and simply very, very chilling.
Actually, there are quite a few that deserve a mention, but I will stop with 'In What Furnace Was Thy Brain?' which was contributed by the main editor. THAT story was interesting. A unique perspective on Genesis.
Overall, the book is beautifully produced, with an absolutely gorgeous cover. It stretches over the back of the book too, which is cool. In fact, one thing that I loved when I saw it, is that the publisher put their logo on the spaceship. Very cool...
I totally recommend this book to anyone who loves sci-fi, adventure and speculative fiction. It appears to be the first in an annual tradition. I look forward to seeing where it goes next. As the back of the cover says, "Hinc itur ad astra!"
