Blue Champagne - John Varley

A very fine collection, polished off with the most excellent thriller novella Press Enter. In fact, the average here is a rather high 3.75, which is very fine.

A couple of the stories are related being in the same future history and sharing a character or two, also consecutive, Blue Champagne being the first.

One writing joke piece that is perhaps more of interest to those at least vaguely related to the industry, but entertaining enough.

Award nominations and Year's Best inclusions happened for 3/4 of these stories, so again, quality stuff this collection.
