Synopsis: Features a blend of established and up and coming science fiction writers, including works, by Daniel Perleman, James Gunn, Robert Reed, Marc Laidlaw, Chad Oliver, and Pamela Sargent

From Publishers Weekly: This second volume demonstrates that Zebrowski's original anthology series continues to establish its credentials slowly and quietly. If the editor's call-to-arms introduction asks more than this sampling can deliver, his points about the dilemma of SF as a genre are well taken. James Morrow's clever "Diary of a Mad Deity" describes a multiple personality so extreme that the teeming other selves form families and then countries, fighting out their differences within one body. "French Scenes" by Howard Waldrop takes a leaf from classic avant-garde cinema to consider new films made with deceased actors, computer-animated from their old movies. The centerpiece of the issue is the late James Tiptree Jr.'s (in 1987 she committed suicide after killing her aged husband in a suicide pact) mordant response to the Peggy Sue Got Married type of time-travel films that suggest life is precious and we learn from our experiences. Not so here. Cold, ambitious Diane Fortnum only seems to be content with her reduced lot in a post-Crash world. When the high-school student spends a month seeing her own circumstances at age 50, she takes drastic action. Even better is Marc Laidlaw and Rudy Rucker's wacky, inventive "Probability Pipeline," in which a drugged-out surfer builds a board that creates the waves and realizes wishes. Robert Frazier offers an example of the innovative art form, SF poetry, and Andrew Joron ponders this newest genre in an essay.
