Deep Future by Eric Brown, Keith Brooke The debut collection of Eric Brown's short science fiction, featuring 'The Kings of Eternity' and many more. Foreword by Keith Brooke. These stories are about love in its various forms with a science fiction backdrop. There are aliens, but the stories are more about the human characters than the aliens. The characters are well developed for short stories, with the dynamics between them easy to follow and believable, although some are more outlandish than others. Plot lines are varied and quite good, which is what science fiction/speculative fiction is all about. Love the writing style, concentrating on the human aspects more than the aliens but they are still there.
