I am a high school English teacher and during most summer breaks I read between 20 and 30 books This summer I just finished reading one book a book I began way back at the end of April David Hartwell and Kathryn Cramer s massive anthology The Ascent of Wonder The Evolution of Hard SF a 990 page collection of 68 SF stories that is somewhere around 500000 words in length In thinking about the value of this book I am reminded of The Science Fiction Hall of Fame in all three of its volumes but I hesitate to ascribe to this collection the same degree of essential ness For one thing I don t see that The Ascent of Wonder lives up to its subtitle The Evolution of Hard SF The stories are divided into three different sections but I can t find where Hartwell or Cramer tell what the divisions mean or how the stories are ordered The editors may have stated their plan of organization and I simply missed it but if they meant for the readers to figure it out on their own well then I missed it again My other criticism is that not all the stories seem to fit as hard sf Each story is prefaced by a brief introduction of the author and his or her works and a explanation of the hard sf affect of that particular story but many of the stories are classified as hard sf due to a tone or intent or even a hard sf riff the author uses Sometimes the relation to hard sf is that the author is playing against the usual conventions of hard sf and critic David N Samuelson writes that this book honors the hard sf appellation in the breach than in the observanceBut the book is still an impressive collection of science fiction short stories even though I don t always understand why some stories were included I do think The Ascent of Wonder belongs on the bookshelf of any serious reader of sf science fiction speculative fiction whatever you want to call it But my criticisms enumerated here are what kept me from giving it a five star rating instead of four
