More About the Author
In his writing, Scott strives to create rich worlds and characters. Although his stories take place in the future, he often looks to the past to give his stories a solid background. He's is more likely to watch Captain Blood than Star Wars to find inspiration on the feel of a story. He reads the latest titles by Jack McDevitt followed by C. L. Moore's stories of Northwest Smith written decades ago with Les Miserables and the Princess of Mars next on his reading list.

The author's writing style is very plain English, at about a fifth grade reading level. The writing is OK. It sometimes lacks from trying to create suspense or cover plot holes by vaguely describing the events. There are enough spelling and grammar errors to be a bit annoying.
One of the stories takes place in space war, which doesn't fit with the rest. It would be nice to see that story expanded into an entire book.
So why, if I liked the book, did I only give it three stars? I'm trying to send a message to the author, that editing a book consists of more than using a spelling checker. The author seems fond of typing "they" instead of "the", and the usual "to" and "too" and "you", "your" and "you're" substitutions are present, plus a few others.
If you are tolerant of editing errors, I will recommend this book.
The stories take place in the same reality and are connected witch each other (except first two) which makes it kind of space opera.
It reminds me Firefly TV series (which is extraordinary and I recommend it to everyone) - every story is short adventure sf, most of them has totally unbelievable plot (like two "soldiers" saving big tourist cruiser from over 40 pirates, and pirates captain asking if they will let him go if he just fly away) but it is almost deliciously unbelievable.
If you like Firefly you will live this stories and vice versa.
There is unfortunately one minor problem with editing - there are plenty typos, maybe every two or three pages - like "the" instead of "they", "he" instead of "her". Somebody (author, editor?) should necessarily read the book and correct all typos and submit corrected version to Amazon.
I like the Galactic Federation universe,and hope to see more stories or novels come outta this book. Very engrossing and entertaining
Hopefully this author will come out with some new material. I've enjoyed the books from Scott so far.
