Strange Horizons Reviews, March 28th-April 1st
This week's Strange Horizons reviews cover two short story collections and a movie. Niall Harrison is impressed with the Jonathan Strahan-edited The Best of Kim Stanley Robinson, finding that many of the themes he's admired in Robinson's novels are ably expressed in his short fiction. Anil Menon reviews Beth Bernobich's collection A Handful of Pearls & Other Stories and also likes what he finds. Less positive is Adam Roberts's review of Battle: Los Angeles, a film he likens to "the experience of sitting inside an oil drum for two hours whilst people hit the outside with metal rods and drop firecrackers in at the top."
