Edge of Infinity edited by Jonathan Strahan. Paul Weimer's review at SFSignal and Carl's review at Stainless Steel Droppings put me over the edge on my decision to buy it.

This is right up my alley. Just bought the ebook. Thanks for making aware of it.

River of Gods - Ian McDonald (Yeah, the eye-searing Gollancz cover)
The Healer's War - Elizabeth Ann Scarborough

Altered Carbon - Richard Morgan
Really enjoying this so far. Bought off the back of a shelf-side recommendation from another browsing customer who had read a lot more sci-fi than me. He also tried to persuade me to buy The Blade Itself by Abercrombie but the first few pages compared with AC didn't seem as good - a poor way to choose perhaps but there could be only one! I also feel tired of Fantasy having read so much when I was younger - but that's another story - for now AC is really good fun.

You still should check out the Abercrombie. It's rather good.
