Aldiss is perhaps best known to the casual observer as the author of the short story that formed the basis of Spielberg s AI It s included here but is little than an aside What takes centre stage is the classic invasion yarn the Saliva Tree along with several great tales filled with wry and chillingly accurate socio political observations It s interesting to see this coming to the fore as the stories go on and the author gets older and wiser

A real mixed bag of short stories most of which aren t terribly compellingI sought out this book because I wanted to read Supertoys Last All Summer Long which is the short story which was used as the inspiration for the film AI In that main interest I was thoroughly disappointed This really provided no insight into the film for which some people believe there were unanswered uestions which I felt to be pretty straightforward but rather focuses on a very small part of the film in a fairly superficial way A few of the players are there those being David Teddy Monica and Henry but aside from that we don t get into anything beyond the home Even Martin is not in this story and that s really where the dynamic of David and his family becomes interesting Instead of an interesting tale of a grieving family and reluctantly lets David into their lives instead it s just a bit of a shocker story about a boy who we don t really know is a robot who s mother gives zero fucks about it While David s feelings for Monica somewhat match how he feels in the film with the main resemblance being the drawings he makes at one point Monica s feelings for David aren t anywhere closeThe rest of the stories vary from mildly interesting to plain boringOne particularly compelling one describes a man who returns from Mars a few minutes out of sync living in the future While this is fun to think about ultimately it s not terribly thoroughly considered and uickly leads to paradoxesAnother has a researcher mistakenly causing two sorts of AI holograms to talk to each other which causes him to inadvertently discover that all of humanity are basically artificially created and going through some kind of script Fun idea but again not really explored too wellThe title of the book is Best SF Stories suggesting these are Brian Aldiss s best offerings If this is to be believed there aren t a ton of good ones That said I am open to the possibility that the title may simply have been chosen to sell books and that these might not truly be the best of the best
