More About the Author

Scott Seldon lives in Colorado with his wife and family in a house brimming with old and new computers. He is a student of technology, history, anthropology, languages, and cosmology. Each separate direction of study has enriched his imagination, but he credits the creative output of George Lucas and Isaac Asimov for the direction it has taken. He turned his creativity to science fiction in his teens and has never looked back.

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.

This is a collection of short stories that are classic space operas. It is some nice light reading.

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.

For me, this is an excellent collection of short stories all set in the universe of the Galactic Confederation. In fact it's going into my permanent anthology collection. These are stories about the independent traders and the officers of the Customs Corps. There is loads of action and adventure. I will be looking out for more by Scott Seldon...hopefully some novels set in this universe. The stories are intelligent, well-written and definitely worth your time.

The idea of a number of short stories that share something in common, is well executed and most of the stories were quite fascinating and the characters, both interesting and believable.

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.

Ten short stories - well written, light, interesting and addictive.

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.

Each short story exists in a cohesive universe with believable characters and challenges. Enjoyable to read and easily visualized in your mind. Nicely done.

This is a collection of stories that are best described as junior space opera. The story lines themselves are very good but there are grammar/spelling/typo/verb tense problems on almost every page, making it hard for the critical reader to flow through. There is very little tension in these stories and by the time you get to the 2nd or 3rd story, you realize that there will be virtually nothing that gets in the way to slow down the protagonist. Anything that could add a dimension of complexity is summarily dealt with instead of being used to add depth. I do wish that there were more connectedness between the stories, as I like the characters that were developed, and would like to see them interacting even more in subsequent yarns. With a bit of editing and the addition of relevant story arcs and dramatic build-up, I look forward to seeing a few more of these stories.

This is an easy read. It is more about people and how they think and make it through some interesting situations.
