ReceptionEdit

The anthology attracted substantial criticism because all authors were white men.[1] In Strange Horizons, Graham Sleight reviewed it negatively, noting that "whole worlds of human experience are largely absent from this book—the sexual, the interpersonal, the everyday" and concluding that the anthology was "damaged by its narrowness" in attempting to evoke a sense of wonder through technophilia.[2]
