Revisiting Dangerous Space
Learning that "Dangerous Space" is on this year's Nebula ballot Asheville, NC bookseller Rich Rennicks, who praised Dangerous Space at the time of its release, decided to reread the collection. After rereading the book, he finds:
The opening line that I wrote last year is still true: this is the best collection of short stories I’ve read in forever. Cutting edge in every sense, Eskridge mines the raw edges of emotion — love, lust, and fear — and places her characters in settings just a little bit different to our own — the near future, the recent past, or the slightly fantastical.
In this second review, Rennicks takes a closer look. You can read it here. His bottom-line conclusion is that rereading all the stories is rewarding.
