Ten Thousand Light Years From Home is a collection of wondrous short Sci Fispeculative fiction stories telling tales of the far future throughout the universe No two stories are the same regarding characters or location yet some thematic aspects do overarch in particular the interactions between a future human race and other intelligent life forms Alice Sheldon managed to create completely distinct emotional journeys in each story none of which exceed 40 pages which is an impressive feat in and of itself Some stories focus on hard Sci fi analysing alien human politics whereas others simply tell of a gripping adventure on a distant world It is often the case that science fiction short stories lead to confusion than anything else due to the lack of introduction of terms places species etc Where an epic such as Dune can take pages and pages describing planets people and relationships a 20 pages tale cannot spend any Sheldon however manages to replace this confusion with wonder Rather than frustratedly trying to puzzle out what was going on I found myself contently furthering the stories long after I had finished reading building the worlds as I imagined them rather than wanting detail to her version Sheldon s prose is similarly an appropriate middle ground between the poetry of hard traditional science fiction and the simplicity of that for younger modern audiences Although an occasional sentence had to be reread it generally managed to be gripping without being overly convoluted I immensely enjoyed reading this collection as a whole and find that each story has amazing re reading capacity In fact I would recommend reading most if not all of them a second time over The Peacefulness of Vivyan is particularly striking when read a second time with a better understanding of the context it also happens to be my favourite story in the collection being both heart wrenching and politically intriguing I would recommend anyone with a slight interest in speculative fiction or Sci Fi to pick this collection up when it is re released in the near future It s perfect for reading all the way through or to use as an occasional pallette cleanser between other longer works
