The Telepath Chronicles (The Future Chronicles) Kindle Edition
Or might it not be the case that evolution alone, in the right circumstances—if not on this planet, then on others—could give rise to creatures with telepathic abilities?
This collection of fourteen stories explores the ramifications of a future where telepathy is real. From that first glorious moment of discovery, to the subsequent jealousies and class divisions, to the dangers of weaponization and the blessings of medical miracles, The Telepath Chronicles promises to take you inside the creative minds of some of today’s top science fiction authors.
"The best place to discover new SF authors, I think, is any of the anthologies coming from Samuel Peralta"
-- Hugh Howey, NY Times bestselling author of Wool
"A powerful new voice in speculative fiction"
-- Nick Webb, USA Today bestselling author of the Legacy Fleet trilogy

I was pleasantly surprised to find that each of these short stories were.rich, and thought provoking, and not the least bit annoying, as I had remembered this format. Even better, I discovered four new to me authors and have purchased their novels as a resultsult of discovering them here.
What makes it such a great collection is that despite the common theme, each of the authors has a different vision of how prevalent telepathy would be, and what its existence would mean at the individual and social levels.
If you like sci-fi stories that are driven by characters, you're going to love this collection.
Reading this book in e-book format has the advantage of allowing the reader to follow links to each author's website, get on their mailing list, or otherwise correspond. And there's a surprise at the end of MeiLin's story, which, which of course I will not be revealing. This collection is worth buying for any one of its fourteen stories.
Even if I am fond of SciFi I never read much in the telepathy genre, but it has been a really pleasant read.
Suggested to anyone looking for something new.
I was not sure what to expect when reading this, but once you jump in the rabbit hole you are there. I could not get enough of this Anthology. The anthology kicks off with #DontTell by Peter Cawdron. This is where you get sucked into the rabbit hole. Just be warned, once you pop the fun don't stop. I found myself going from story to story and not wanting to put the book down.
For me the highlights are the following stories:
The Null by Vincent Trigili - This story is my favorite. This story is so fast paced and really draws you into the world. I found myself quickly turning the page to find out what was going to happen. I don't want to give away much, but this story is really good. I hope Vincent does more in this world.
Decode by Autumn Kalquist - This is the first story that I have read by Autumn and I really can't wait to continue this story in her other books. I really look forward to them.
Stability by Teresa Kay - Again, I really got drawn into the world that Teresa created and needed to know what was going to happen. I hope that Teresa continues the story in future books.
No More Lies by Nina Croft - Again, another story that I really liked and I hope Nina continues in this world.
This anthology is just full of great stories. I feel that I am doing the book justice if I don't mention every story in it, but the above were the ones I really liked. Do yourself a favor and buy this. You will not regret it.
