    "Overall, Meh"

    I'm pretty sure I won't remember any of these stories next week. As opposed to other stories I read thirty years ago and still remember.

    I begin to think that anthologies of "original" stories are anthologies of stories that couldn't be sold elsewhere. In future, I'll concentrate on collections of Hugo/Nebula award winning stories.

    "Solid stories, some sketchy performances."

    I know that not every book can justify a top-level, expensive narrator...but someone should have been listening to these performances and making corrections. Sci-Fi is often about technical terms and spacey-sounding names. When the narrators don't have a clue it's embarrassing and off-putting. If you don't recognize a word, people, ask. If it doesn't appear to be English, it probably isn't. At least strive to pronounce the *title* correctly. Sheesh. Short words in all caps are often acronyms. EVA isn't a woman's name in a space story. Try, really try, to determine which character is saying which line of dialogue before applying one of your oh-so-crafty character voices to them. Please.

    Anyway...this is a book of solid, enjoyable sci-fi stories, most of which are narrated well, and a few of which are narrated so horribly that they are all I remember from the experience.
