Scheherazade Cast In Starlight by Jason Andrew is a strong,sharp story about an Iranian woman who uses her kills to tell the world of her country in all it's brutality. She recounts how her mother had been thrown in jail for drug abuse, but her only crime was being elected to the parliament. If you read this and you mistakenly think it's the one story in Shine that's downbeat, it isn't. Here we have a modern day storyteller who gets the world to listen, who empowers and who becomes the face of what a patriarchal society tries to destroy. Spikey, vivid storytelling.

I've been asked about my favorite story in the Shine anthology.

My favorite story is "At Budokan" by Alastair Reynolds.

It has humor, dinosaurs, heavy metal, and forced evolution. That's right, dinosaurs playing HEAVY METAL!!!!
