    Wireless ePUB º Hardcover wireless download, Wireless eBookI didn't 'like' many of these stories but they were well written with wild landscapes interesting points The first few were plain depressing others were funny the last one just pains me in its complexity Not what I expected but fascinating I can't say I really look forward to reading by him but at some point will probably read The Atrocity Archives since one of these stories was in the same universe Anyone who can blend SF Lovecraftian horrors together this well deserves my attention“Missile Gap” One Million AD 2005 edited by Gardner Dozois was uite long but good The Earth has been moved stretched out on a new surface p

    Wireless ePUB º Hardcover wireless download, Wireless eBookIt's really hard to give a star rating to a short story collection especially one by an author who is as hit and miss as Charles Stross I've read two of his novels I hated one and really enjoyed the other That's kind of how I feel about the stories in Wireless Two of the stories Down on the Farm and Palimpsest would have rated 5 stars I especially liked Down on the Farm and will be checking out his novels featuring The Laundry The Atrocity Ar

    Wireless ePUB º Hardcover wireless download, Wireless eBookThis is Stross's most recent collection of 2 in the time when he was giving staid old SF some well needed kicks in the pants An exceptionally good collection 45 starsWIRELESS is bookended by two 5 star novellas Missile Gap 2005 and Palimpsest 2009 first publication here The latter won the 2010 Hugo Somehow I'd never read it and boy is it a winner It's a rewrite

    Wireless ePUB º Hardcover wireless download, Wireless eBookSo what rules does Charlie follow to ensure maximum Strossness in his writingI think I've sussed out a couple1 Introduce at least one new thing every page2 Never explain any of these new thingsLet me elaborate on what I mean by these rulesEver hear of the van Vogt rule of writing Referring to AE van Vogt of course His particular style was to introduce a new idea or a new detail that helps unravel the plot every 800 words Damon Knight called this the kitchen sink techniue but I prefer how James Blish termed it recomplicatedJames Edwin Gunn explained that it didn't necessarily mean that a totally new idea needed to be thrust upon the reader but that a new revelation of old ide

    Wireless ePUB º Hardcover wireless download, Wireless eBookAll very thought provoking stories Some of them took me a while to get my mind around but I did enjoy every word of this book Missile Gap is a particular mind blower with the Earth somehow being transported to a flattened disk outside the Milky Way and in the far future A Colder War has inspired me to put Lovecraft on my to read list I think my favorite was the last Palimpsest A palimpsest is a scroll or book that has had the text scraped off so that it can be reused In the context of this story it refers to time travel going back again and again trying to fix an event in the past that went wrong A time travel agency is trying to save humanity from extinction by reseeding Earth with populations from earlier epochs

    Wireless ePUB º Hardcover wireless download, Wireless eBookWIRELESS is brilliant from cover to cover The first storynovella Missile Gap is my favorite The ideas What if a vast alien intelligence without our noticing instantly peeled the Earth like a grape and transferred it to a colossal deep space disk large enough to contain a billion Earths What's on all those other continents that came from somewhere else Is this real or is it a simulation Stross has done some deep thinking here

    Wireless ePUB º Hardcover wireless download, Wireless eBookWireless is a uality short story collection by Stross uick reviewsMissile Gap This is the story of a late 1950s earth whose crust has been peeled off our globe and stuck on an even larger flat plate what that means to the people who live there and how that influences the tensions of the Cold War It was fascinating weird and fun The concept was oddly original 4 of 5 starsRogue Farm

    Wireless ePUB º Hardcover wireless download, Wireless eBookNot too bad a collection but not the career defining retrospective that I hoped to read None of the stories really blew me away But they were all fairly solid science fictionMissile Gap A bizarre kinda alternate history story with a Big Dumb Object thrown in Lots of cameos from historical figures and a weird story telling structure make this pretty compellingRogue Farm A rather funny—and kinda creepy and repulsive—story about baseline humans clashing with post humans in a strange futureA Colder War A very bleak Lovecraftian alternate history story that I would have liked a lot if it didn't completely rehash Missile Gap's structure Has an incredibly depressing endingMAXOs Very short and funny; presented as a scientific paper on the decoding of interstellar signalsDown on the Farm Not the best Laundry story I've read so far but pretty solid Bob Howard investigates the Laundry's own psychiatric hospital for its former agents Not all

    Wireless ePUB º Hardcover wireless download, Wireless eBookI had read a couple of short stories by Charles Stross online and read some of his commentary which I found insightful so I looked forward to reading by him I was not disappointed even though I would have wished stories here maybe a bit shorter so the collection would have been even diverse Even so there's a bit for everyone here The opening story had a gonzo concept the surface of the earth at the height of the cold war flattened out as part of an enormous disc surrounded by copies of itself It goes interesting places The one thing that irked me was the fragmented style used by Stross In short format this breaks up the narrative a bit too much for me and robs the ending of its impact a bit It did work well for 'A colder war' again playing with history a common theme
