I bought this book sometime in early January, but after reading the first three stories I put it down and moved on. I didn't care for any of them; all equally so. I just figured I would get back to it later. So about a month later I started it up again and found that I didn't hate the entirety of the collection. I was particularly fond of 'The Road to NPS' and 'Safety Tests'. I initially found the story 'The Peak of Eternal Light' intriguing but then it wore off. Tedious. I absolutely loathed 'The Girl-thing Who Went Out for Sushi' and 'Deeps of the Sky'.


Anyway, its a pretty hit or miss anthology here. Chances are if you read it at least one or two of these are gonna appeal to you. 


Give it a read if you like scifi shorts.
