The title story, like most of the other pieces, is character-centered as a single mother wrestles with high-tech taking over . I bought this book because I like Nancy Kress's writing. As I read, I found out that I had read many of them before in various annual "Best Of Science Fiction" anthologies.

The title story, like most of the other pieces, is character-centered as a single mother wrestles with high-tech taking over her town. Patent Infringement is a fine if brief epistolary story on the subject; The Most Famous Little Girl in the World is the story of the lifelong friendship of two women set against a background of alien contact. First Flight is an affectionate homage to the classic Tom Corbett, Space Cadet TV show of the 1950s. Nonetheless, I enjoyed reading them again.

I discovered Nancy Kress when her recent book, Fountain of Age: Stories was sent to me in error. After reading and enjoying those short stories, I sought out more. Nano Comes to Clifford Falls didn't speak to me as much as Fountain of Age but maybe that is the age thing (I'm 63). I kind of poked through the first few stories finding them OK but not compelling. They seemed like standard science fiction, just what you expect and nothing more

NANO COMES TO CLIFFORD FALLS by NANCY KRESS Nancy Kress is the author of twenty-three books. Nancy is currently working on a medical thriller. Her last story for us, "My Mother, Dancing" (June 2004) is a current finalist for the Nebula Award. I was weeding the garden when nanotech came to my town. The city got it a month earlier, but I haven't been to the city since last year. Some of my neighbors went-Angie Myers and Emma Karlson and that widow, Mrs. Blanston, from church.

The pathos of the human condition is explored in such stories as "My Mother, Dancing," in which seedlings are planted and those responsible must decide if they will play God with them, or let natural selection progress; or in "Nano Comes to Clifford Falls," where nanotechnology brings every wish to everyone-yet dire problems still ensue.

Blending a focus on cutting-edge technology with deep emotional impacts, this collection draws its stories from various 'Year's Best' and 'Reader's Choice' lists. From the centre of the galaxy to the swamps of Earth, all 13 tales offer a trademark mix of science fiction interacting with flawed humanity.

Blending a focus on cutting-edge technology with deep emotional impacts, this enticing collection draws its stories from various Year's Best and Reader's Choice lists. The pathos of the human condition is explored in such stories as "My Mother, Dancing," in which seedlings are planted and those responsible must decide if they will play God with them, or let natural selection progress; or in "Nano Comes to Clifford Falls," where nanotechnology brings every wish to everyone—yet dire problems still ensue. The narratives reveal many forms of artificial intelligence including a persecuted slave in "Computer Virus," a controlling force of the universe in "Mirror Image," or even one that's entirely indifferent to humans in "Savior." From the center of the galaxy to the swamps of Earth, all 13 inventive tales offer a trademark mix of hard science fiction interacting with flawed humanity.

Nancy Kress is a very original Science Fiction author and I love most of her stories! I didn't think much of "Beggars in Spain" however, even though it won both a Hugo and Nebula awards. It just had too much mean spiritedness against the main characters who didn't need to sleep and excelled at most intellectual pursuits. I think a lot of people would want to know some of those people -- I know I would. Of course my wife and I met at MIT, so I'm not insecure in that way, but even so it's depressing to base a story on such uniform jealousy!

If you like Sci-Fi/Fantasy, or philosophy, this is one of the hottest authors I've read.

I bought this book because I like Nancy Kress's writing. As I read, I found out that I had read many of them before in various annual "Best Of Science Fiction" anthologies. Nonetheless, I enjoyed reading them again. There are no cookie cutter characters here. Thoughtful, well constructed stories, guaranteed to entertain.

It is an interesting change reading the scifi written by a woman, I can certainly see and feel a difference in the stories. Besides that, very interesting stories and well written. I have found the second story in this book is my favorite so far, very unique. Recommended for any serious scifi collection.
