"Science fiction is the characteristic literary genre of the century. It is the genre that stands in opposition to literary modernism." So says David G. Hartwell in his introduction to "The Science Fiction Century, " an anthology spanning a hundred years of science fiction, from its birth in the 1890s to the future it predicted. David G. Hartwell is a World Fantasy Award-winning editor and anthologist who has twice before redefined a genre--first the horror field with "The Dark Descent, " then the subgenre of hard science fiction with "The Ascent of Wonder, " coedited with Kathryn Cramer. Now, Hartwell has compiled the mother of all definitive anthologies, guaranteed to change not only the way the science fiction field views itself but also the way the rest of literature views the field. "The Science Fiction Century "includes stories from the founding fathers of the field, such as H.G. Wells, C.S. Lewis, Jack London, and Rudyard Kipling; beloved mainstays of the genre, such as Philip Jose Farmer, Roger Zelazny, Jack Vance, and Poul Anderson; noted female writers, including Connie Willis, Nancy Kress, and James Tiptree, Jr.; and writers who have hit their stride in the last two decades, such as Bruce Sterling, William Gibson, Michael Swanwick, and James Morrow. Hartwell has also included writers widely recognized outside the genre, such as E.M. Forster, Michael Shaara, and John Crowley; and translations of foreign writers' formative works, including Dino Buzzati and Wolfgang Jeschke. This is must-have anthology for all literary interests.… (mehr)

I read this over the summer of 1998. It is a very comprehensive science fiction anthology. I think it makes a very good work if you want to get a historical overview of where the genre comes from and where it is going. The stories do vary in quality, so odds are good you may find some you like more than others. Overall, a book you can read cover to cover, or just to browse. It has been a while since I read it, so I may have to revisit this book sometime. ( )

"Beam Us Home," by James Tiptree, Jr. (1969): 7.25
- I know I need to take into account the time this was written and the actual context, that is The Vietnam war and the many ways in which people were dealing with the fallout back home. That said, it still strikes me as a bit weird to hang such an ominous story, with both high stakes narrative and contemporary implications, on a Star Trek connection. Partially the reason that it doesn't work is that the protagonist is so shoddily sketched out, with little evidence given for any of his many many possible character motivations, before it's just explained to us at the end. At the same time, she does about as good as she can with such a weak original concept, building up its realistically messed up world, in which foreign relations have gone bad, but not in the most evidently disastrous way that many genre writers would create, and painting a picture, if you would like to read the story this way, I've just a young person adrift in the world and I only have sure if what they want to do once they see how much they've messed up.

"Something Ending," by Eddy C. Bertin (1971): 6.75
- These ones are a bit sad; some people really want to join a club. It's of a piece with the story from the German writer: they look like an SF story, the walk and talk and quack like one. But they're just missing something--and that something's, no matter how small, the difference between a cringe and an 'hmm, okay.' Our story: a man meets -- three times, in the parable way the worst of these older stories ape -- another, older man who insists that nothing around him is real, i.e. that it's all an illusion manufactured just for him to give the semblance of other consciousness. A generous reader could say that Bertin is laying out a conte philosophique -- or a small fable-like story intended to illustrate or serve as a platform to interrogate one or more philosophical 'problems' -- in that he's dealing with [in the Illusion thought] one actual theory of consciousness. That's giving this a lot more credit than warranted, I believe, as, even if that was the intention, it's quite lazy, in simply placing the description in the exposition-spewing mouth of the drunkard. And also, come on, it's not doing that.

"Ministering Angels," by C.S. Lewis (1955): 6
- It is an unexpected pleasure, after first being so familiar with the stereotypes of the Bad Old SF -- namely, that it was racist, sexist, libertarian, callously colonialistic, and much more -- and second reading so much of it, to find, now so deep into the thing, that the single worst culprit of the claims, the story that, more than any other, actually and unapologetically embodies those expectations, is one by fucking CS Lewis. Just priceless. The piece: scientists on a years-long mission to Mars are surprised when a relief ship appears before their allotted time is up. They're there not to wrap things up, but instead to drop off two women to act as government-mandated Relief Women (otherwise ... what? space madness or some shit). The two women are, simply, grotesqueries: one, the "Fat Woman" constantly ridiculed in the prose for her girth and lasciviousness and disgustingness and complete indifference to her lack of desirability; and the other, the "Thin Woman," clearly meant to be a priggish, stern lesbian, only there because of her sincere devotion to science (as a Uni prof) and otherwise completely androgynous to the crew (they didn't initially know she was a woman). Other than the Thin Woman, they're all given cockney accents (!), and the classism seeps through. It's really quite remarkable stuff; the genuine hatred for women just seeps off the page. In short, some of the men escape, rather than have to live with/fuck these women, and the others are ready to revolt -- all except one: the saintly Monk, who is happy that he's able now to minister to the Fat Woman. Unfuckingbelievable. It's like a fair and Lewis is lining up all the socio-cultural developments he hates and just shooting wildly at them in the stupidest most puerile way possible. Every megachurch simp who ever talks about MERE CHRISTIANITY should likewise be required to teach this at Sunday School, although of course they would cause they'd love it. I mean, more, it's just real funny that I'm sure there are like really considered, labored annotatations of this tripe in some necktie Christians stupid Collected CS Lewis and they're giving space and thought to this reactionary drivel. Just really amazing stuff.

"He Who Shapes," by Roger Zelazny (1966): 9
- Zelazny wades in a world of literary possibility. Peep the drunken dreamvision scene: allusive language, some studiously non-purple purple prose, and some essential measure of authorial emotional remove, leavened, nonetheless, by what can only be called an excessive amount of sentimental emotional investment (that last line: “And he was afraid”). None of this is to say, however, that he’s doing any of this particularly well. Indeed, the joys to be found here (and they’re here aplenty) are largely the joys of well-done speculative fiction (very much of a very certain era, bear in mind): i.e. the noirish crackle, the explicit, psychoanalytically influenced philosophizing around the central SF conceit, the techno-utopianism. What bridges both of these modes, however, is his knack at the turn of phrase—at conveying an emotion or scene in the 85th rather than 30th percentile. Zum Beispiel: “Knowing she verged upon beauty, Jil took great pains to achieve it.”

I like to dip at leisure into my home library's short-story collections, rather than reading straight through. And so, by its nature, a book like this occupies the "unfinished" shelf. Like its title suggests, this book's authors encompass the 20th century. They represent a wide range of genres and focuses within the field of "science fiction." This book is sure to occupy my interest for some time to come.

Little did I know the treasure I was finding when I picked up The Science Fiction Century, a massive anthology of 45 science fiction short stories edited by David Hartwell. Almost all of the selections included were outstanding, but I especially enjoyed the stories noted with an asterisk below. Each selection opens with a brief biography of the writer and their work, which I really appreciated.
Highly Recommended; http://shetreadssoftly.blogspot.com/
