Small Beer Press, Easthampton, MA, 2012
From my TBR pile.
This is a collection of stories previously published in magazines like Asimov’s and Fantasy. The opening story,” The Erdmann Nexus,” won the Hugo Award and the title story, “Fountain of Age”, won the Nebula.
I don’t believe I’ve ever read anything by Nancy Kress before and I am now jumping at the chance to read her novels. This collection runs the gamut from illegal genetic modification to alien intervention brilliantly. It is worth the price of admission for “Laws of Survival” alone. Read it.
I just found out one of my all time favorite magical realism tinged novels, Winter’s Tale by Mark Halprin, is being made into a movie starring Colin Farrell and Jessica Brown Findlay (for all you Downton Abbey fans). More here.
