    1. A collection of science fiction stories with African themes, mostly quite good:"For I Have Touched the Sky", Resnick. Innocent curiosity beaten down by tradition. Good."Apartness", Vernor Vinge. The last Afrikaaners after a Northern World War are found in Antarctica. Great."Termites", Dave Smeds. The solution to world hunger and the solution's problems. Good."The Finger", Naomi Mitchison. Not really SF; a young boy escapes from his evil father, the witch doctor. I liked it."The Lions Are Asleep [...]


    2. Resnick, famed for his stories set-in Africa or inspired-by African themes, teamed with Dozois in editing this anthology. The collection is led-off by one of his own terrific Kirinyaga stories, but I think they tried to include too broad of a mix of themes and included some less worthy than others. My other favorites were by Vernor Vinge, Gregory Benford, and Howard Waldrop.
