From AudioFile:

Infinivox has been publishing their Great Science Fiction Stories series for several years, and every title is worthwhile. Now they present this collection of stories on the short end of short--nine unabridged stories are presented in just under four hours. Tom Dheere and Vanessa Hart do a tag-team delivery, each taking a turn reading a complete story before handing the microphone to the other. Their performances are credible and satisfying. The authors represented are well known to science fiction fans: Greg van Eekhout, Elizabeth Bear, Paul J. McAuley, Molly Gloss, Bud Sparhawk, Carol Emshwiller, Joe Haldeman, Stephen Baxter, and Bruce McAllister. This enjoyable collection would serve as a nice introduction to contemporary short science fiction. S.D.D. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
