Designed to capture the cosmic scale of superpowered space comics in prose, this collection lands the cosmic element, though its hit-or-miss with the grandiosity. The Deckhand, the Nova Blade, and the Thrice-Sung Texts by Becky Chambers nails the superheroic style in a chosen-one-against-impossible-odds tale told in the form of journal entries; in Seanan McGuires Bring the Kids and Revisit the Past at the Traveling Retro Funfair!, a case of mistaken identity leads to a delightful adventure. By contrast, Linda Nagatas Diamond and the World Breaker is a relatively quiet tale whose high stakes take a backseat to the core story of a mother risking everything to put her daughter first. In Seven Wonders of a Once and Future World by Caroline M. Yoachim, the scope of the cosmos is the entire point, with the story broadening immeasurably and the stakes entirely internal. The deliciously enthralling The Dragon that Flew Out of the Sun by Aliette de Bodard is about the stories we tell ourselves, and crosses cultures, traditions, and mythology with life in a galactic empire. The varying styles make this anthology pleasant to read, if thematically inconsistent. (Apr.)
