That’s why Shine is such a significant — dare I say, historic — anthology.
Overall, Shine is utterly worth reading.
It is to de Vries’ credit that all but the most hard-hearted of sci-fi readers should find their own brand of optimism represented somewhere among Shine’s array of bright futures.
But if we are to have some some influence over how that change unfolds, isn’t it important that our stories, whether they be in the news, on television screens or in the pages of science fiction novels, fully explore the optimistic possibilities that technology represents?
[...] Shine was a truly fascinating and enjoyable read. [...] because this one has genuinely broken down some preconceived ideas I’ve had about the genre.
For an anthology with a very tight remit — optimistic near-future science fiction — there is a huge variety in the stories themselves. It occurs to me that this book is the perfect introduction to SF for readers who wouldn’t normally venture into the genre.
The diversity of the stories and the consistently high quality of this collection is testament to his passion for this project. [...] A shining example of what positive thinking can achieve.
