I love and hate Sci-fi almost in equal measures. I don’t understand tech- babble at the best of times, add to this warp-speed, phasors and other futuristic tech-speak and I’m completely lost. What I do love is where the writer’s imagination can take you. Sci-fi is a wonderful blank canvas to paint your own colourful picture. In The Welcome: and other Sci-Fi stories, Tom Benson and his six guest authors have used their canvas well. If Techno-babble is used it is to quickly outline a futuristic world and to set the scene. I loved that each of the guest authors had chosen a completely different theme and style; which makes this book a great show case for Sci-Fi writing. This is selection of short stories that is easy to read, with something for everyone. (Even for fans of erotica!)

The Welcome by Tom Benson is a collection of short stories from several authors including AA Jankewicz, Pam Kesterson, Paul Ruddock, Val Tobin and of course, Tom Benson.

‘Control Freaks’ by Tom Benson was hilarious and I thought this one would be hard to beat by the other contributing authors. Then I came across ‘Digital Escapes’ by Paul Ruddock. Wow!

The Best In Shorts Award – Paul Ruddock for ‘Digital Escapes’. Absolutely loved it!

In case you hadn't guess, this is a collection of science fiction stories that run the gamut from horror to hope to self-sacrifice and everything in between. It's what I like to refer to as a smorgasbord of awesome. Tom even added a few bonus stories from his other collections including a bit of sci-fi erotica.
Like all good science fiction, the stories focus on the human elements of the narrative and use the sci-fi elements as backdrop. This kind of sci-fi gives writers whole new worlds to populate and cuts the restraining orders of reality to ribbons. Always, though, the stories come back to the people that populate those worlds and how they react to the adversity of being stuck on strange planets, eaten by blobs, put in a position where they have to sacrifice themselves to save others, or the woman who comes across a very special man.
Sometimes operatic, sometimes intimate, sometimes intimate in that way, The Welcome and Other Sci-Fi Stories provides a tasty treat of delightful morsels of science fiction.

I love short stories, and am a long-time fan of science fiction so having read previous books by a number of the guest authors who contributed to this excellent collection I knew I couldn’t go wrong. Tom Benson’s short stores are always a treat, and I thoroughly recommend his previous books if you haven’t discovered them yet. This collection, which includes stories by other accomplished writers such as AA Jankewicz, Pam Kesterson, Paul Ruddock and Val Tobin, is a spell-binding delight from start to finish. Some made me smile, some alarmed me, some made me think: “Well, it could happen...” but what they all have in common is an insight into human beings and our strange behaviour – whatever century we happen to show up in and whatever alternative reality the author might invite us to enter. For me the combination of the inquiring curiosity of scientific imaginings plus the psychological exploration of human nature faced with a variety of dilemmas makes for science fiction at its very best. This book kept me intrigued and I raced through it all too fast. More please!

I like sci-fi, when it is written well enough not to confuse me with all its futuristic babble :) These stories were well written and easy to follow. While they are all sci-fi based, the each differ in the overall feel.included other
I thought this book was a great way to get to know the names and styles of individual authors. There were a couple that I will definitely look for other books of theirs.
