    A very nice average of for this volume, but a novella heavy book, so only 23 stories. Only a couple of average and one dodgy story to go along with the fine intro (some quotes below) and summary, gives this book top marks. There are several standouts, topped by . Baxter's main work is called the "Xeelee Sequence". It is a story of the future of the Universe, which Baxter tells in 4 books: Raft, Timelike Infinity, Flux and Ring. Vacuum Diagrams is the fifth book of the series. It is not a one-story book, but a set of 21 short stories chronologically placed.
