The first story, From Earth I Have Arisen, is a crackerjack post-apocalyptic action-adventure tale. Telling more would be risking spoilers, so let me just say it was gripping from start to finish. Well written and well paced.
And the last story, Claudius Rex, is a stunner. Author John P. Murphy pulls off the difficult feat of writing a blended hommage to Nero Wolfe, with just a touch of William Gibson. He combines the old and the new in a clever, stylish way that satisfies Rex Stout fans and science fiction fans. Crisp, intelligent writing that gives the best of both worlds. If you know the Wolfe stories at all, you're bobbing your head in pleasure as each sure-footed step unfolds. Only trouble is, it's going to leave you wanting more, and wishing he'd do it again, it works so well. A very enjoyable read.
