I've ready about thirty of these and they fall into a couple of categories:
1. Ideas for stories that never go anywhere (i.e. Heaven or Hell, which I'm not sure why this is the first "story" the author starts with).
2. Short stories where the author actually delivers (i.e. Gold Medalist Material)
There is a good variety of items here that span aliens, AI, robots, etc.
Keeping it short and to the point is an interesting challenge and it was of interest to see what the author did or didn't do successfully with these "stories".
For us authors, this could be a really good challenge to see if we can do any better or not.
There are some editing challenges, such as with the story, The Last Shuttle. Though I'm American and maybe the wording in one of the sentences is an English thing or an American grammar thing, I'm not exactly sure.
In the selection I read, there was one with some profanity. So I did a search on the f-bomb and found no less than 20 uses of this one particular word throughout. Thus, if you have younger readers you may want to consider this before letting them read.
OVERALL: Entertaining and sparks the imagination, though some of the stories could use some help in becoming real stories (beginning, middle and end) versus the framework for an idea.
