    This is the second short fiction collection from the Future Classics speculative fiction writers group of North Dallas. Volume 2 includes William Ledbetter's Nebula-winning novelette The Long Fall Up (and I can certainly understand and agree why this novelette won!). Also, I particularly enjoyed Afterimage by J. Kathleen Cheney. This was a detective story but was particularly interesting because this detective is blind. I don't read too many stories told from the disabled person's point of view a This is the second short fiction collection from the Future Classics speculative fiction writers group of North Dallas.

I don't read too many stories told from the disabled person's point of view and I liked that a lot. Authors also included Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam who had a Nebula Award finalist novelette this year (but in this collection, she had two short stories). I enjoyed Jake Kerr's Old Equations story very much. Here is what he said on his Web site about this story: "The second story I wrote and the first one I published, "The Old Equations," appeared in Lightspeed magazine and went on to be named a finalist for the Nebula Award and to be shortlisted for the StorySouth Million Writers and Theodore Sturgeon Memorial awards. Overall, this collection had 12 stories I considered either to be gloriously or terrifically written. Additionally, another four left a powerful impact on me. Only last two were not exactly to my taste (but were certainly well written). Can't wait for volume three!

    For what this is, a novelette of just over 7,000 words, I found this story interesting. Ledbetter enables the reader to imagine a much wider world than that found in the characters' immediate story. Because of that, I found this 23-page story of two (three?) people and an AI quite readable. Found this copy through one of my State Library's periodical databases. Go libraries!

    Good story! A Nebula nominee.. Much of it reminded me of a few scenes in my novel, Mandate of Earth.
