    1. The premise at the heart of this collection of short stories was a fascinating one the book is at attempt to bring together science fiction writers and scientists in producing something entertaining and educational, and consists of a number of short stories on a variety of scientific subjects interspersed with short essays by experts in the fields upon which the fictions are based.Alas though I can t accuse it of failing at this attempt, it did feel slightly inconsistent in places due partly to [...]


    2. This anthology s USP is that it brings together SF authors with scientists and the resulting book collects the stories that were sparked by the meetings and discussion It s a good collection, with each story having an afterword by the scientist that the author was in discussions with, although it doesn t start particularly well with Justina Robson s Carbon being a story that completely failed to gel with me Most of the other ones hit closer to the mark though, with Ken MacLoed s Death Knocks, ab [...]


    3. The back cover says When it changed is an attempt to put authors and scientists back in touch with each other Take away the fantastical clich s of space travel, time travel and artificial intelligence, and how much of what remains accurately represents contemporary scientific thinking So what is the result Nice stories, but they were a bit boring I liked Hair by Adams Roberts and Moss Witch by Sara Maitland, though Each story also had an afterword by a scientist, and they were incredibly dry to [...]


    4. This was a very interesting read A collection of short stories inspired by existing scientific research and theory, with afterword by the scientists Though I did not enjoy all of the stories some of them captured my imagination The concept of basing sci fi on evolving technology and science really appeals to me, not to mention you get to learn little interesting tit bits along the way.If you like sci fi and short stories there will be something in here for you.


    5. What a fantastic idea pair a writer and a scientist The writer shadows the scientist and creates a story based on actual cutting edge research Can t wait to read it


    6. It s a book containing short stories based on an element of science as a plot point, each with an afterword from a scientist on the current state.It s not interesting.


    7. Not bad wasn t too sure at the beginning, but with all short stories books, there are some part I liked and others that weren t to my taste.
