Several of these stories had me reading author bios to find out where I could read more of their writings. Two of the best, as you might expect, come from Michael Stackpole and Brandon Sanderson. That is not to take anything away from any of the other amazing stories, but these two did such a good job exploring the emotions and building the worlds around the armor that I found myself disappointed when I got to the last page and found an end instead of another chapter or volume.
If this is the quality of anthology that Adams commonly puts together, I will have to find more of them.
Nice job with the selection of stories.
The stories are a great variety from speculative fiction sub-genres. There is something for everyone.
The battle doesn't go only to the fast and strong. Ammunition has a limit. The enemy is not always obvious.
Good way to kill and afternoon (and hordes of space bugs).
