Review quote

"Space opera is celebrated in this capacious anthology with stories from a stellar lineup of its best contemporary practitioners....irresistible to space opera enthusiasts."
-Publishers Weekly Starred Review

"While the broad sampling means readers may not enjoy every tale, the wide variety on offer makes this volume worth a look for any sf reader, regardless of their particular genre tastes."
-Booklist Review

"Infinite Stars is a strong celebration of the variety and power of the space opera subgenre, both in its history and its ongoing vitality" - Locus magazine


"celebrates the breadth and scope-and storytelling power-of space opera" - Barnes & Noble SFF blog

"a once-in-a-lifetime collection" Unbound Worlds

"great sci-fi done right, an appetizer whetting the appetite for much larger entrees to follow." -- Seattle Book Review


"After reading this volume, even the most grounded reader will be able to see that space opera has blasted off from its formulaic and predictable pulpy roots to explore galaxies of carefully crafted prose, thematic depth, and character complexity. These stories beg the reader to question the very nature of reality and gaze in wonder at the universe, pondering the struggles and joys of humans who seek to find their place in it" -- Tethered by Letters

"A great anthology with a bit of something for everyone and some top notch writers to boot." - Portland Book Review
