In their review of the new Peter Watts collection Beyond the Rift, the Library Journal refers (login required) to the tales as “evocative” and suggests that the book is “a good choice for fans of the author or those who appreciate a good sf short story.”
From the award-winning author of the Rifters trilogy (Starfish; Maelstrom; Behemoth) comes a collection that demonstrates Watts’s skill with short fiction. In addition to the Hugo Award-winning “The Island,” the Prix Aurora Award-winning “A Niche,” and the Shirley Jackson Award-winning “The Things,” the volume also includes a metaphysical puzzle story about life after death (“The Second Coming of Jasmine Fitzgerald”) and eight other evocative tales. VERDICT This is a good choice for fans of the author or those who appreciate a good sf short story.
