Compostela (Tesseracts Twenty) is an anthology of hard and soft science fiction stories that best represent a futuristic view of the sciences and how humanity might be affected (for better or worse) by a reliance in all things technological. The stories contained within the pages of Compostela are a reflection of the world we live in today; where science produces both wonders and horrors; and will leave us with a future that undoubtedly will contain both. Journeys to the stars may be exhilarating and mind-expanding, but they can also be dangerous or even tragic. SF has always reflected that wide range of possibilities. 28 stories, 9 poems… (mere)

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I received this book through LibraryThing Early Reviewers in the summer of 2017, but did not finish it until sometime in late autumn 2019. Perhaps 6 months of the delay was due to experiences with other Early Reviewer and free-on-Amazon titles; it had slipped my mind that this was a professional publication.

However, the rest of the delay was due to my reluctance to resume once I did start reading. Admittedly, anthologies are easy to put down, and few anthologies have more than three or four compelling stories--and there ARE some decent stories in this anthology. (I liked "In Memory Of" and "The Shadowed Forest," and "The Shoulders of Giants." Ironically, this last struck me as the only story that really captured the theme of Compostela as a pilgrimage and a field of stars, and it had been published in 2000!) But the not-so-great offerings in this anthology were not just unmemorable, but often downright painful. There was a great deal of mediocre poetry (do editors lose the ability to discern literary merit when confronted with free verse?). There were also some stories that resemble, well, the free stuff on Amazon or high-school literary magazines...down to the typos (e.g., epilates for epaulettes) and punctuation issues.

The anthology is not offensive, and I did get through it. I am glad that I did, because my favorite story was the last one in the collection. But...okay, so I read approximately 250 books *from the library alone* in between sessions with this anthology. Infer what you will. ( )

Some of the stories where beginnings making you want to read more, some were beginnings in which the suspense was lost b/c the likely ending was implied, others were complete short stories and there was some poetry included.
Overall it gives the read a feeling of the authors' style which should provide you insight as to whether or not you'd be interested in reading more of a given author.
There was a great variety of writing styles and genre to find something you like.

This anthology, christened Compostela or "Field of Stars," is an aptly named collection of (mostly) new science fiction poets and short story writers. Many of the stories are brief and simply constructed. Their work is straightforward and sincere, deserving of attention for the possibilities ahead. Young adult and childhood themes and content abound, without the constraints of layered nuance. Standouts include Robert J. Sawyer's "The Shoulders of Giants" (reprinted from "Star Colonies," a DAW Books anthology from 2000) and Leslie Brown's "Trespass." Each of these new stars, forming out of the stellar nebulae, have a glow all their own. ( )

Collection of SF and speculative fiction/poetry with the general theme of technology. A lot of very short stories. Robert J. Sawyer is represented with a story about pioneers who show up at their destination planet to discover that tech, and thus colonization, has leapfrogged them. Nothing really stood out for me, though as Robinson writes in the afterword, if this is the zeitgeist, the zeitgeist is very very bleak. ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
Through no fault of the book it took me a very long time to even start much less finish - this was primarily due to the essential disfunctionality of trying to read a PDF ARC on my Kindle Fire - it can be done, but the gadget makes it very difficult. As I said, this should not be construed as reflecting on this book, just an explanation for why it took so long to review.
As for the anthology itself, I am very glad I read it. A varied collection in both appeal and tone, but generally high quality, if not memorability. The poems, interspersed throughout the collection, were generally not memorable, though a couple were worth a re-read.
There is true SF, soft sf, romance, speculative fiction, aliens, social issues, apocalyptic aftermath, horror, tragedy and hope - sometimes all mixed up in a single story, but usually just one or two at a time. I found a couple personal triggers, but they were pressed so deftly that I was able to cope. That being said I confess the last story left me in tears, but not traumatically so.
There were a few stand-outs that were more memorable than most - Grounded by Miki Dare with it's alien yet not too alien world, No More At All by Lisa Ann McLean - how it ends perhaps, Buried, But Not Dead by Garnet Johnson-Koehn - another pre-apocalyptic-maybe.... ya gotta read it yourself. In Memory Of by Derryl Murphy was especially hard for me to get through for purely personal reasons, yet remains the clearest and most memorable (pun intended). There are others I liked very much but as in any varied anthology YMMV but I can definitely recommend this collection for fans of speculative fiction, and anyone interested in meeting new authors.
