For example, David Levine's story "Love in the Balance" qualifies as dashing space opera, with lines like "Zenobia, prepare my zeppelin gun" but also has the description "He paced before the shuttered window, heedless of the books' shuffling and murmuring as they rearranged themselves alphabetically." The image of the books sorting themselves out on the shelves stays with me, but so do the ranks of zombie troops, and the affectionate ship. Lee Battersby's couple that restored their old house too accurately, huddled together for strength, is going to haunt me, too. Maybe it wouldn't worry me, if my house hadn't been built in 1911?
It's 19 all-new stories and one reprint -- Howard Waldrop's classic "You Could Go Home Again."
On the other hand I do not get the appeal of David Brin, who crams his story with annoying (and illogical) ergot, like some adolescent who just discovered pig Latin. Jed Hartman's "The Last Of The Zeppelins" is nowhere near as humorous or as engaging as its author thinks it is. These quibbles however are minor. Nearly every story imparts a "sense of wonder." Folks read speculative fiction to be entertained and, just as importantly, to be made to think! These stories achieve those goals in spades. If you love Zeppelins or just want to recapture the wonder and romance of those bags of doped gas, this is the collection for you.
