    "Great varied collection of short sci fi stories."

    This is a nice, fairly quick collection of sci fi short stories, covering a variety of people, places and topics, from a cadet on a training cruise having to deal with armed boarders, to aliens escaping a battle in a lifepod, but the aliens turn out to be different than expected. All in all, very creative and I could see some seeds for future stories coming out of this.
    Doug Tisdale does a good job bringing the stories to life, covering a wide variety of genders and personalities, as well as species.

    I was voluntarily given this review audiobook by the author.

    "Great short stories"

    Each story was better than the one before. If you are a fan of sci-fi stories than you would probably enjoy this. If I had to name one thing wrong, I guess it would be that I did not quite like the person reading the book.
