    I received this book as part of the Goodreads First Reads Program for the purpose of a fair review. Overview: We have eight stories in the speculative fiction genre that ranges from Victorian magical realism to time travel, to futuristic contacts of interstellar aliens. Likes: My personal favorite was “The Highlight of a Life.” Though there were three other stories that I enjoyed as well. Dislikes: “Voices in the Deep” bothered me greatly. Conclusion: I liked more stories than not. This is a plus fo I received this book as part of the Goodreads First Reads Program for the purpose of a fair review.
