Review: Just Over the Horizon

Just Over the HorizonJust Over the Horizon by Greg Bear
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I was disappointed in this first of the three-volume series of Greg Bear’s short fiction. Two stories (novelettes) took up half the book and neither was very good; one was an unused TV episode and the other was some kind of bizarre twist on a fairy tale that didn’t work for me at all. In fact, there was not a single science fiction story in this book. That should be clear to anyone considering this book: this is not sci-fi.

I don’t even know why I’m giving it 2 stars. None of the stories were memorable or interesting. I like Greg Bear but his work sure is inconsistent in quality.
