I bought this book long ago when the series first debuted and purchased all of them but one I missed. I really enjoyed these collections of short stories contained in the same universe. I've always had a soft spot for military sci-fi, humans versus aliens, and this series did not disappoint. Especially since the first volume contained the only short story I've ever read by E. Gary Gygax, which was actually one of the best of the lot. There's a lot of humor to be in this book as well. The overarching story that connects each tale really frustrates its character!

Granted, it's not the best set of short stories ever, but it certainly is fun to read. Now, the worst part of this... This book has some horrible editing. The physical copy I owned years ago was not this bad. It's almost like they sent it thru a computer that transcribed it for them and never looked at it again. I would expect better of something I paid so much for. This book is over 20 years old and cost more than it did when I first bought it. You would think they could have someone read thru it for errors.

Other than that, the stories were well worth the effort to read them. I really enjoyed it. And getting it in the ebook format helped because finding a physical copy now is difficult.

EDIT: Just to let you know, I contacted the publisher, Britton Knowles, to let them know know about the editing problems in this book. Not only did they explain they had some problems with the version on Amazon, but they also made an effort to correct the version on Amazon and also sent me a better copy. In addition, they threw in a free book from their library. They stayed in constant email communication until the problem was rectified, and I have to give them props for their great customer service and attempt to make things right.

Interesting and skilled editing for a Space Opera from Many authors. Each voice brought a unique style to the stories and aided in the believability as different Points Of View made the story move forward at a quick pace but with individual insite to the current story. Pretty predictable once you got to the sudden stop at the end. Lots of room to grow the world. Fun read for a summer afternoon.

and that was the main reason why I bought this book, and the fact that it was in kindle version quickly sealed the deal for me, I'm reading this book now and look forward to reading the 2nd and 3rd books afterwards. I do wish the price would come down a bit though $5.99 for these old books is a bit more than I want to pay.

One is a series of space yarns, this is part of a good tale that is easy to read and enjoyable. Not the best of the genre but still a good summer read and entertaining.
