I found that the two Culture stories in it were a little similar to each other (the shorter one was better). Also there were two stories, the first and the last, that I didn’t like at all. But all was redeemed by Descendant, the story of the guy who crashed on a planet with just his intelligent space suit. The two of them have to walk for like a thousand kilometres to where they might find some help. It’s not a mind-blowing idea fest or anything, just a really good story about a human and a machine.
