Not the Only Planet: Science Fiction Travel Stories

By Damien Broderick

Rating: 3 stars

The short stories in this collection are linked by the theme of travel, something not unexpected from the publishers, Lonely Planet. There were a couple of stories that felt familiar, one, Let’s Go to Golgotha!, that I had definitely read before (but is definitely worth reading), and some very good ones. In particular I’d pick out Gene Wolfe’s Seven American Nights for its wonderful descriptions and language and Robert Silverberg’s Trips for its wanderlust, ideas and general coolness. Definitely a collection to that’s worth reading even if, like me, you’re a confirmed stay-at-home type.
