Robinson, Kim Stanley. Pacific Edge. $13.95.
Reprint 1988 hardcover; first trade paperback edition.
"Only Stan Robinson could get me to read and enjoy a book with such a whiney protagonist. If you're reading the Orange County trilogy, read this one last."--Janet
"For many reasons, my least favorite of the three. By having all major action take place between chapters, Robinson fosters a sense of the futility of personal action which pervades this Green future Orange County. And yet, the mirrors of the other two parallel Orange Counties may be enough to keep some readers going."--Dave
"Okay, okay, it is the weakest. But that means it's only five times better than most books."--Debbie

Stephenson, Neal. Zodiac: The Eco-Thriller. $5.99.
Reprint 1988 hardcover.
"Stephenson's second novel is his tightest, best-realized book, though it's not as wide-ranging and full of invention as his later work. A must for Stephenson fans, and for anyone who thinks the world is too short of funny, intellectually engaging thrillers."--Janet
Stevens, Brooke. The Circus of the Earth and the Air. $12.00.
Reprint 1994 magic-realist hardcover.
Stewart, Sean. Resurrection Man. $11.00.
"Science fiction, fantasy . . . what's next in this man repertoire? How about magickal realism with a style only achievable by him. Thank the Angels for spiders and thank Mr. Stewart for his incredible worlds."--Andrew
"Jonathan Carroll fans take note -- this is the magical realism J. C. serves so well, but without the marginal hesitation (J. C. always keeps the magic in the background and the realism in the fore, while S. S. blends them so well you look twice at your own history), and the ending works too . . . One of the creepiest opening chapters I've ever read. Stewart is more than a talent to watch. He has arrived literate transcultural horror/fantasy. What more could you want . . . "--Juris

"Wonderful, haunting, moving."--Rio
"Theme anthologies suffer from too much similarity--in this case, two or three stories at a time is enough to keep you going for weeks. The stories range from fine to spectacular, and there is hope sandwiched in amongst the terrors. The editor's essay, 'Surviving Childhood', is a spectacularly honest and moving piece of work. Highly recommended."--Debbie
