What I love most about At the Helm 3 is that I can have tasty little quick reads, I can tell if I like the author's style and if I want to read more, and because they are Kindle based I can go right to the author's site, sign up for newsletters, start getting into their signature works, and as of right now I probably have enough reading material to keep me busy for the next 10 years. And I can't tell you how much I'm loving that!
This book gave me A.K. Meek and David Van Dyke, among others! Ya gotta love that! and at the "way less than a Starbucks" investment, this is just a no brainer!
Thank you Rhett C. Bruno and company, and thank you Sci-Fi Bridge! You are definitely bringing readers and authors together, and I can't readily express how much I appreciate that in just a few words.
I would recommend this book to anyone searching for new authors to read and some FANTASTIC fun stories on the way there!
Several of the stories were just teasers of larger works. If they weren't, they sure as novas should be!
You have a very happy addict on your hands now and I NEED ANOTHER FIX! Get crackin'.
Some of the stories really are quite intriguing, but many suffer from the same fault: they are not truly "short stories", but rather first chapters of potential (or already existing) full-length novels. One of the "short stories" is even the subsequent chapter of a "short story" presented in one of the two previous "At The Helm" compilations.
As a "sampler" this collection works. However, if what you want is truly short stories, then this book isn't it.
Much of the subject matter is intriguing, many of the proposed stories start to delve into potentially fascinating topics (they just stop short of actually doing so, since we're only getting the "set-up" for the stories).
There are (and this is really a subjective, personal taste issue) a few too many "military" sci-fi stories to keep me interested. A few of them could be completely removed from their sci-fi settings and simply set in any present-day war zone, and the story wouldn't be missing any elements.
A note to the editor: please, in future, avoid the TMI ("too much information") blurbs at the end of each story where the author "thanks" their "savior Jesus Christ". These aren't religious tomes, and the irony of a fervently religious person writing science-fiction is almost too much to bear.
