I’m hardly neutral in this (Dario’s a friend, and I blurbed the antho for him), but the novellas in there are well worth a look. In particular, Ken Liu’s “The Man who Ended History: a Documentary” is a terrific work, and deserves many awards nominations. It’s an unflinching look at Japanese actions during the invasion of China in WWII, and asks hard questions about what history is, and whether it belongs to the victims or the historians.
You can read an excerpt here (I’m not a big fan of the pseudo science that opens the story; in fact, I almost skipped to the next one when reading the ARC; but trust me, the story gets infinitely better after that, and hits really hard). Pretty much worth the price of the antho on its own; and you also get all the other cool stories when you buy 🙂
