Publisher's Summary

More authors. More stories. The same best-selling universe. It's the 22nd century. Humanity has taken its first steps into the galaxy, and we've found ourselves in a vast playground of alien races, environments, and cultures. As the newest players on the universal stage, though, our position is readily apparent - we're at the bottom of the food chain. 

Welcome back to the Four Horsemen universe, where only a willingness to fight and die for money separates humans from the majority of the other races. While some of the stories in this audiobook deal with mercenaries, others introduce listeners to the other guilds, organizations, and races that make up the landscape of the Four Horsemen universe, and many of them provide background information to the mainline novels. There's even a new form of life to get acquainted with and a look at alien interaction at its youngest level! 

Edited by best-selling authors and universe creators Mark Wandrey and Chris Kennedy, For a Few Credits More includes 16 all-new stories in the Four Horsemen universe by a variety of best-selling authors - some you may not have heard of...yet. It's a world where you can get anything you want. Some things, though, are only available for a few credits more!

Mercenaries and Mechs.

Probably can’t say enough about the stories here. I mean, not every story is on the same level, and I appreciated some above others, but I have to say that I enjoyed them all. Narration was bloody brilliant. Took a chance on this because of Michaelson as the voice.
Favorites: butch and Sundance by Cawdron
Where enemies sit, Rob Howell.
Leverage, Josh Hayes.
Emancipation, Mark Wandrey
Forbidden Science, Terry Mixon
Family Tradition, Ian Malone
Messenger, Nick Cole
Tinkerman, Jake Bible
That being said, each story really had great entertainment value. A lot of these collections are hit and miss, but this was time well spent. Will listen to several again.

Incredible Antho and Narration!

If you like the 4HU, or just plain awesome mecha with well-written stories, give this a shot! Seriously, NOT ONE story was weak. Great action, good humor, and some truly ingenious plot twists. The thing I love about anthologies is discovering new authors. There are definitely some here that I will now go seek out their full length books. From Cawdron’s great opener to Ezell’s spectacular finish, this antho was never dull.
NARRATION: Keith Michaelson is a god. I have listened to some of his other stuff and was delighted to see him listed as the narrator here. I wish for him to narrate my life. Top 3 favorite narrators, especially for sci-if/fantasy.
Worth 2 credits IMO, but only costs 1.

Skeptical to Believer

Always a little wary of short story collections. The first two stories pulled me in and I became a believer in this book. The performance was awesome, both production quality and voices. The narrator seemed to have a well of unfathomable voices and accents to draw from.

Two stories, Leverage and Boss, were intertwined a bit and that was really cool. Loved Messenger by Nick Cole, different but had great character voice. Ah heck I liked all the stories. Like another reviewer said, I’ll go back and listen to several more. Some didn’t deal directly with Mecha, but we’re good set ups for future stories—or that’s what it seemed like. In a way, this is a book of “trailers” for the authors’ full length books. Really good showing all around. Will recommend.

Basically Awesome

So, basically I thought this collection was awesome. Some stories more engaging than others, but that's the way of anthos. Expertly and professionally narrated, which really gave good life to all the stories. Great voice.
Favorite were the opener, kind of a mystery noir, and the second and third stories. So yeah, the first 3 open this book with a bang. So good humor as well mixed in with some truly unique turns. Other stories were more straight forward, but I love me some metal crunching, straight forward action sometimes.

good group of stories, few oddities

I really like short stories! this collection has a lot of good ones, even some great ones. a few of them are not stories though and abruptly end without any resolution at all. not a fan of that, but good overall.
