Blood Music was great. Schrodinger's Plague was pretty good too. The others not so much.
"Tangents" is a mixture of mostly strange, bizzarre 'hard' sci fi and a few stories that actually are easy to grasp by the casual scifi reader (which I am one). Dealing with the drawbacks of genetic programming in a very futuristic world, "Sisters" was touching emotionally, a fascinating short story that was very well written. "Blood Music", the short that spawned an entire novel by the same name, had an intriguing premise, while "Tangents" (the story) showed us the musical bridge to the fourth dimension but the real star of the show was the haunting "Dead Run" which was turned into a Twilight Zone episode. Its by far the best of the bunch. The rest range from disgustingly strange, "Sleepside Story", which is one of the worst pieces i have ever read, and a giant waste of time, and the same sentiments apply to "Webster". Casual sci fi'ers might want to look elsewhere.
An earlier story collection, and he writers an introduction talking about the difference between forward looking and 'past=comforted' pepole in America, relating that to science fiction.

A pretty good bunch of stories, averaging 3.44.

'Sleepside Story' gets me every time I read it.... along with the mind bending 'Tangents' and the classic 'Blood Music', this collection shows the many facets of Bear's talents. All high quality, thought provoking story telling!
