I ve been a big Rush fan ever since the first time I heard 2112 as a seven year old back in 1976 a little young perhaps but I had an older brother that wore the vinyl out playing it over and over in our room I ve been a Science Fiction fan for just about as long Needless to say I was on the edge of my seat to read Sci Fi short stories inspired by the music of Rush and compiled by respected Sci Fi author Kevin J AndersonWithout going into too much detail on each individual story who wants a long dissertation right I can say that the resulting collection is pretty much what I expected from such a wide range of authorsThere s some great writing here There s some poor writing here There s a lot in between Some stories I got lost in and wanted By my count there were only two stories bad enough that I didn t finish them I won t shame the authors by mentioning which two Some may like them To each their ownMost stories it s obvious which song inspired them There were a few that I had to flip back to the title to see which one I ll admit that there were a couple of eye rolls in there because other than uoting a half a line from a song the story really had nothing to do with the song that inspired it I m also sure there were a couple of line mentions that were from a completely different song from what was claimed was the inspirationSo as a compilation how do we rateHmmm put the five stars over here the one stars over there the in between here carry the two divide by pie eyedThree starsSay let s do this then Three is too low I ll add half a star because out of the entire collection there are none of the oh gawd vampires are so hawt stories that so plague the Sci FiFantasy section of my local BigBox book storeAnother half of a Red star simply because Kevin J Anderson had the gonads to keep the promise of the collection s title and write a story telling us what happened at the end of 2112 The Elder Race comes across as a little artsy fartsy for me but it s a solid story It even attempts to answer the uestion that has bugged me for decades did the Elder Race return when they did because they were summoned somehow by the music or was it simply coincidenceA note to KJA if he s reading this hey some authors do and respond A guy can dream The Storyteller how I ve always thought of him has to leave the Temple with the guitar intact because he plays it before The Dream and one last time in the cave by the waterfall before he uh diesFor all of Mama s Special Little Snowflakes who will complain that I didn t offer a spoiler alert before the last the album has been out for 40 years now kiddos Dig a copy out of your father s collection and give it a listenNow if you ll pardon me I have an album to go listen toAttention all planets of the Solar Federation

I enjoyed the read and being a Rush fan helps with that If you are a Rush fan you will appreciate the storyline much better than someone that has never heard their music and listened to the lyrics Cheers
