Monsters & Critics reviews Paolo Bacigalupi

Jason Sanford over at Monsters & Critics reviews Paolo Bacigalupi’s debut story collection Pump Six, which mostly contains stories originally published in F&SF: "Pump Six and Other Stories by Paolo Bacigalupi the best science fiction short story collection of recent years. […] So if you enjoy philosophical science fiction stories, read Pump Six. If you hate philosophical science fiction stories, read Pump Six. Because like the evocative concrete rain which continually falls from the buildings in Bacigalupi’s title story, Pump Six gently rains upon the reader until you find yourself swimming in a deep ocean of truth. And no matter how you approach this book–whether for the ideas or for the great stories–you won’t be disappointed." The full review is here. Jason also offered up some additional thoughts about the title story over on his blog.

    I also recently took note of Bacigalupi’s story “Tamarisk Hunter” over at my site:

    And I read Jason’s review this morning. I’ve noticed Paolo’s stories over the years in F&SF so the attention Pump Six and Other Stories is getting is justified. I need to go order a copy. And I need to add a reference to the collection on my blog essay.
