    One thought on “Futures Past”

    1. A fantastic collection of short stories. All scifi, and all with elements of hard science, so the setting is first rate and believable. However the stories are full of intense emotions, personal sacrifice, heroism, courage, with some fine characters.A great read, even if scifi is not your favourite genre, as the stories are so character driven that the humans (and sometime aliens) drive the plot. With some clever twists, each story will have you hooked until the last paragraph.

    2. The title prepares one for outdated stories, but this isn't quite the case. Technology often outstrips sci-fi writers, but White is mostly writing about ideas and social interactions, anyway. Not to say that that sort of thing can't become dated, as well--but that's rarely so with James White, and mostly not so in these stories.Table of contents:I Spacebird (A Sector General story)--This fits in just after Star Surgeon. The title (and the cover picture of the collection) tells the story: Space. [...]

    3. Interesting collection of short stories! Some had a bit of a predictable end with an odd element, others kept me guessing longer. All the stories are sufficiently unusual and engaging. This book is definitely one of my re-reads.
