I keep anthologies for reading on my phone because I'm not often without my eReader and the shorter stories are good for the short times where I only have my phone as a reading device. I've been reading this one off and on for the whole of December.
This isn't my first Infinity Project anthology; I actually started with the second one Edge of Infinity because I wanted to read an award-winning novella from that collection. I'm actually glad that that was the way I started, because had I read this one first, I'm not sure I would have continued. There are a few good stories in this one, but overall I felt the quality was uneven and the theme to be lacking.
Standouts for me were The Invasion of Venus by Stephen Baxter (I'm not normally a fan of his; now I'm wondering if I should check out more of his shorter works) and The Birds and the Bees and the Gasoline Trees by John Barnes. I also enjoyed the Peter Watts story that kicks off the anthology (Malak), but it's just a riff on Watts' normal themes around humanity and inhumanity, which I personally love, but is far from everyone's taste.
From a negative point of view I found the John C. Wright, David Moles and Robert Reed stories nearly unreadable.
From a should-be-noted point of view this collection contains Bit Rot by Charles Stross which is a story between Saturn's Children and Neptune's Brood in the Freyaverse books.
Read if you're a completist or a Stross fan, but this is a skippable volume in this series.
