Read them in order

I enjoyed the series more as I went through each episode. At first I struggled because it seemed like random stories set in this universe. But as it continued and I realized it was interwoven story lines I enjoyed them more. The main characters were enjoyable. It's pretty traditional sci fi fare but still worth the read.

He said, she said.

Really enjoying the plot and the universe of this series so far, my one big reservation, as a listener, is the authors writing style.
His insistence upon continually using the phrase "he/she said" in close proximity is extremely annoying. There are literally hundreds of other words that could replace the word "said" in a sentence, there are also hundreds of phrases that could replace "he/she said" many of which could denote feeling, tone and intent, to rely upon this one phrase is both lazy and incredibly, annoyingly, repetitive.

Great short story

This is a great short story, in a collection of intertwined short stories.

I will look for more title by this author.
