Too many dragons; not enough sci-fi.

I didn't enjoy this book and I was so looking forward to listening to it. It had a few bright spots like Okay, Glory and Mother Tongues, but not enough in a book this size. Disappointed...

used to love this series

I forget the name of the previous person who used to curate the stories in this series. The stories were almost always excellent, and introduced me to new authors. Not this one, these were awful, I gave up after the 7th story. Maybe next year.

Not what I thought it was

Much more fantasy than SciFi, and mostly lame stories about fairies. Just not my thing.
