    Seven means perfection...

    Nice cover, good presentation, looks professional. I only have a problem with its title—“Seven Against Tomorrow”. I know, seven means perfection and Stephen thought this is a good thing. No one taught him modesty. Well, I would’ve preferred “Nine Against Tomorrow”. Nine symbolizes divine completeness, has the meaning of finality. After the ninth story I would’ve had the feeling that I’m done. Nine is also the number of Universal love, which is not little thing. But most of all, seven of Stephen’s stories is not enough. I loved them. I wanted two more. So he gave us one more, the one called “Under the Shield”, a marvelous story starring Nikola Tesla. And kept the title with seven. Because, seven, perfection, you know… A trick. What about one more story after the extra one? Was that too much to ask, Steve? Believe me, it’s not just a matter of personal taste. The stories in this book are awarded stories, published in big name magazines or anthologies. For instance, “Saturn in G Minor” won the Grand Prize in the Writers of the Future contest and was nominated for the Prix Aurora Award. It didn’t won just the first place in one of the quarters. The. Grand. Prize. The first place of the first places. Anyway, we expect big things from Stephen. Not only because he has been hailed as one of speculative fiction's "talented up-and-comers" by Publisher's Weekly, and the author of "gloriously wild ideas" by Locus. But because we saw what he can do. And we believe in him. And this is not the royal “we”. I mean the “we” from his writers group, The Stop Watch Gang. He’s also promised us a novel. So, I’m going to say nice things of him until he gives us the novel. I am that selfish with the things I like.
