Review:

"Breathtakingly rich [...] Superior writing, fantastic storytelling and creative adherence to the theme will keep readers enthralled." -Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"Federations is definitely one of those anthologies that offers something for everyone. [...] the stories in Federations mostly keep a very human perspective on the hugeness and strangeness of a galaxy teeming with life. And that's reason enough to sign on to its galactic charter."- io9.com

"For this anthology of twenty-four stories, editor John Joseph Adams tasked some of the brightest luminaries of speculative fiction to write stories of vast, galaxy-spanning empires. [...] By mixing writers with great experience in with newer authors, Adams captures both the feel of the old pulp magazines and the practical elements of the ever-changing science of astronomy and space travel. ... Editor Adams has collected both the finest writers and their finest tales in the definitive volume of vast, epic, interstellar Federations." - Sacramento Book Review

"Where the book shines is with the original stories, many of which are by quite new writers. [...] The mix--of  old and new stories, of newer and more established writers, and of tones and styles--is vigorous and impressive." - Locus Magazine
