For generations, the science fiction genre and literary fiction have been perceived as irreconcilable. Startling Sci-Fi: New Tales of the Beyond attempts to prove otherwise. These 13 stories are boldly literary while employing unmistakable characteristics of the sci-fi genre. Jhon Sanchezas aThe Japanese Rice Cookera and Daniel Goodingas aCrow Magnum Xixa toy with readersa expectations by defying traditional storytelling techniques while Eve Fisheras aEmbraceda and David W. Landrumas aThe Priestesses of Lighta are intricately constructed character studies. Rob Hartzellas aThe Dead and Eternala raises profound concerns about modern technology though Adam Sassas a98% Gravesa takes an optimistic view of the future. Every story is accompanied by Stefanie Masciandaroas vibrant, hypnotic illustrations which simultaneously evoke the days of sci-fi pulp paperbacks yet remain firmly grounded in 21st century digital techniques. This anthology will take you beyond what you thought possible in science fiction.I dona#39;t think this item is a disappointment; I think the only con is the bad translation from Japanese into English. ... Some of my friends even became scared (Funny!). I have looked at the instruction manual as to how to change the settings.
