    If you are an avid Kage Baker follower, you have probably read most of these stories The only ones which had not previously appeared in an anthology or collection were Bad Machine and The Carpet Beds of Sutro Park I had not read The Faithful , though it seems not to have appeared anywhere since its 2003 appearance in New Voices In Science Fiction For a full listing of the contents of this collection, see here.I had been looking forward to reading The Carpet Beds of Sutro Park ever since it was m [...]

    Worth the price just for the comically Lovecraftian Calamari Curls, and the Poe on Mars episode Maelstrom But there aren t any duds.Notable notes The Master of the Mountain s nursery decor in Leaving His Cares Behind Halfway up the walls was a mural painted in tones of pink and pale blue, featuring baby rabbits involved in unlikely pastimes Also, in Maelstrom, the theatrical Maelstromettes.

    You are such a poser Changes is a best of Henchman 21, The Venture BrothersAh, the eternal debate for the SuperFan do you buy every book album action figure sticker collection to show you are true and dedicated to your fandom Or do you disdain such collections as a mere capitalistic ploy Personally, I dodged the question by splitting hairs and getting the book from the library I skimmed past everything I had already read and or anything that was not a Company story It would have REALLY helped if [...]

    Kage Baker left us far too soon Her untimely death in 2010, at age 57, was an immense loss for the science fiction and fantasy world, but she s sure to pop up on recommended reading lists for many years to come thanks to the treasure trove of genre fiction she left us, spread across about a dozen novels and several short story collections.The Best of Kage Baker is a brand new collection from Subterranean Press containing twenty examples of her brilliant short fiction as well as a set of beautifu [...]

    I was very excited when this leather bound limited edition of Kage Baker s best short stories showed up on my doorstep my wife is awesome It was a joy to read through these stories, though it was a bit with a heavy heart as I know there could have been many Best Of volumes for Baker if she hadn t passed away at 57 from cancer.The collection began with six short stories set in The Company universe, and my enjoyment of them varied on how well I liked the protagonist of each I love Porfirio, Josep [...]

  9. Ned Stenger White

    this is a GREAT collection, especially for us fanatic KB completists as there are several previously unpublished stories this would be a great intro to her style for anyone new to her work how i envy the person discovering herom a completist standpoint, the book is mildly frustrating, as the stories are grouped by which of her original collections they re from, which i guess is chronological normally, i prefer this sort of anthology, but in this case the different worlds of KB become a bit scram [...]

  10. Bondama

    I stumbled across this book at the Library, and a whole new world was opened for me It s a book of short stories, perfect for sampling a new author and Kage Baker is an eye opener for me She writes primarily of a superior race which has existed alongside of homo sapiens forever They disguise themselves as human in some stories these creatures come from the far future and, armed with their knowledge of history, work behind the scenes to either prevent colossal tragedies or retrieve books and work [...]

  11. Renee Babcock

    Anyone who likes Kage Baker and everyone should will love this collection Half the stories have been collected elsewhere half haven t Most of the stories are in her wonderful Company series, including the first story of hers I ever read, Son Observe the Time, an account of the final hours before the 1905 San Francisco earthquake A lot of the stories are set in California, where Baker was from, but they re stories out of time I hate living in a world with no new Kage Baker stories, which to me m [...]

  12. Sally Epp

    Kage Baker is one of my very favorite authors Her short stories remind me of Ray Bradbury, in that there are re appearing characters and little connections and clues that show up across her body of work Each stand alone story is satisfying by itself, but is also a tiny but important fragment of a bigger picture that only she could see Sadly, her premature death means that we will never get to see all of it About half of the stories in this collection were new to me, so it was well worth the read [...]

  13. Ian Durham

    I had never read any Kage Baker before I tend to be very picky about science fiction and fantasy Essentially, it has to transcend the genre in order for me to like it And this does Certainly some of the previously unreleased material was a little rough around the edges, but so much of it was just so superb I was really surprised I had gotten the book from my brother in law who had accidentally purchased two copies Now I will have to read of her work.

  14. Becky

    Reading this collection of short stories and novellas was bittersweet due to the reminder that it was likely the last new stories from Baker due to her untimely death in 2010 This collection is about half previously published stories, so I had read several of the stories before Baker s gift for combining history and science fiction is evident in both the old and new stories My only wish is that the collection contained new tales of The Company.

  15. Lisa

    Five stars, which is fitting since the collection is The Best of Kage Baker, and when she is good, she is very very good Several of the stories appear in other anthologies of her shorts, but most do not Well worth reading, and might make a nice introduction to her work and style for new readers.

  16. Patricia

    A wonderful, brilliant collection, some of which were previously published and some NEW stories If you have never read anything by her, this might be a nice introduction When Kage Baker died in January 2010, her distinctive voice was stilled forever I feel that she was one of the finest storytellers of her generation I miss her.

  17. Kelly Wagner

    The short stories were mostly written before the rather disappointing last book in the Company series I had read all but one of them before, either in earlier anthologies or in the science fiction magazines I do like the Company characters.

  18. MJ

    Another author who died too soonI enjoyed the stories about time traveling members of The Company and will look up any that didn t appear in this book Stories on other themes were somewhat why bother for me.

  19. Molly G

    As with many best of compilations, the stories that truly are stand out remarkable I ve already read from other collections The ones never before collected are of a mix All good, of course I ve yet to run into a Kage Baker piece I haven t admired but not necessarily best.

  20. Norah B

    Some stories were better than others and probably make the most sense to someone who knows the characters from other Kage Baker books.
