    In the aftermath of WWII, an alien virus struck the Earth, endowing a handful of survivors with extraordinary powers. Originally published in 1987, the newly expanded saga contains additional original stories by eminent writers.

    Story

    With a cast of writers such as W J Williams and the late, great Roger Zelazny (who is NOT listed as an author, though his character Croyd Crieghton (sp?) is one of the best), this is a great anthology by great science fiction authors in the tradition of great "comic books." Good work, and I look forward to the next three chapters.

    Enjoy.

    The starship Lady Macbeth encounters a long-abandoned alien spacecraft, with its escape route still intact - but leading where? If the crew claims salvage rights, the technology inside could make them wealthy enough to buy planets. But first they need to make sure it's as empty as it seems.

    It is nice enough, but I would like to hear the full Neutronium Alchemist Trilogy, of which this is only a precursor.

    Story

    In a world renowned even within a galaxy full of wonders, a crime within a war. For one brother it means a desperate flight, and a search for the one - maybe two - people who could clear his name. For his brother it means a life lived under constant threat of treachery and murder. And for their sister, even without knowing the full truth, it means returning to a place she'd thought abandoned forever.

    Story

    The editing/abridging done to this book for all intents and purposes has removed any "real" elements of Mr. Banks' Culture- my apologies to himself if he was involved, but no excuses. This book was 600 pages of text and edited down to 5 1/2 hours. A tragedy.
    On the plus side, I will never be suckered again by purchasing anything "abridged." I read the original novel in hardcover when it first came out, and this was like the "made-for-television" version of a bad paperback.
    Not worth the time or money in the abridged version. I wish I could not even give it one star overall.
