“Stanton has assembled a stellar collection of rising talent...a treat for any reader who enjoys fresh, well-crafted storytelling...Highly recommended to any library that collects contemporary fiction." —The Christian Librarian, USA.

"In Sky Songs editor Steve Stanton presents 25 futuristic stories by 16 writers: four Canadians, 11 Americans and one from the United Kingdom...The anthology mixes modern themes—genetic engineering, android rights and artificial intelligence—with new twists on old standbys like time travel and vampires...Together they make for eye-opening and heart-felt writing.” —Faith Today, Canada, Reviewed by Terry Burman.

Sky Songs is a great read...If you’ve ever wondered how demons and angels sword fight, how missionaries from space would work or how surgeons would operate if they found demons in a person’s heart, then Sky Songs should be next on your reading list. I found myself more often than not coming to the end of one short story begging for more.”—Pine Bluff Commercial, USA

"There are certainly some interesting and original ideas presented in this anthology of Christian fantasy and science fiction." —Refracted Light, USA.

"These are really an excellent representation of our sub-genre. I especially liked 'The Levitation of Alicia Spencer'" (by Fred McGavran).
—B. Joseph Fekete, Publisher, Gateway S-F Magazine; Stories of Science & Faith, USA

"I firmly believe that speculative fiction is one of the best tools for the communication of Truth. Straight theology is appropriate for what it is, but by wrapping that theology up in a fantastic story, it becomes palatable for a much wider audience. All of humanity has a longing for the Truth, and when we see glimpses of it, we are drawn even deeper...Within this volume are stories dealing with a wide variety of subjects and themes. Witness tales of androids, angels, vampires and aliens...Sky Songs is Highly Recommended for fans of the genre." —

Donna Farley was the recipient of The Word Guild Canadian Christian Writing Award 2003 in the Short Story category for her story "The Passing of the Eclipse," in Sky Songs. The awards were announced June 13, 2003 at the annual "God Uses Ink" Conference in Guelph, Ontario.
