Midwest Book Review



Strongly recommended for science fiction collections and reading lists.

Accomplished Eric Brown presents Threshold Shift, an anthology of fantastic tales of the imagination that includes the British Science Fiction Award-winning tales "The Children of Winter" about a hopeless love affair between alien kinds on an icy world in the far future, and "Hunting the Slarque" about a Hunter resurrected by the curator of an alien zoo and set against the vicious creature that killed him, the Slarque. Other stories include three set in Brown's Kéhani universe, in which aliens offer the people of Earth immortality — a gift that comes with abiding moral and ethical dilemmas. Threshold Shift explores the complex problems arising from future technology, as well as constructing fantastic alien visions and worlds, and is strongly recommended for science fiction collections and reading lists.
