KIRKUS REVIEW

It's weird enough for me"" seems to have been editor Datlow's rather flexible criterion for admitting stories into this anthology, the second of a series of science-fiction collections featuring pieces that originally appeared in Omni magazine. Some, like SF veteran Frederik Pohl's tale of Mars, are classic SF. Others, like Richard Kadrey's ""Fire Catcher,"" about a pill-popping hacker manning the cyberspace front against the Soviet Union in WW III, rely more on a noir tone than on a scenario (which is just as well, since a noir tone has proved more durable than the Soviet Union). A few entries, like Kate Wilhelm's ""The Dragon Seed,"" are, as Datlow notes, just as likely to find their way into a non-SF anthology. With work by Greg Bear, Carol Emshwiller, Howard Waldrop, Roger Zelazny, and others.
