Author: Charles Stross
Narrator: Paul Hecht, Robert Ian Mackenzie
Prolific novelist Stross pauses to collect short stories that have not (yet) been stitched up into his longer work. Stories that move the US – USSR conflict onto a massive disk in another galaxy (Locus Award-winner “Missile Gap”), offer a spam-filter solution to the Fermi paradox (“MAXOS”), and suggest clever bargains with the devil in a newly frozen Scotland (“Snowball’s Chance”) demonstrate Stross’s ability to crisscross genres, blending SF, fantasy, horror, and espionage.
