Great Mix of SF- Short Stories

If you could sum up Lightspeed Year One in three words, what would they be?

Fantastic Sci-Fi Fun - This book is full of surprising stories with great audio- performances

What other book might you compare Lightspeed Year One to and why?

This is hands- down the best anthology of SFi-Fi stories I have read or listen to.

Which scene was your favorite?

Orson Scott Cards idea of Elephants roaming in the plains and cities of Poland is just a great fun picture for the readers mind.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Certainly easy to continue to listen for the whole day, but because there are so many diverse and interesting stories from the SF- great masters of the game: Take it slowly !

Reader Beware!!!!

Great writing, dark material. One story about a man who wakes up early in a crio chamber then proceeds to eat the rest of his crewmates to survive was almost too much to get through. The writing puts you right into the stories. So beware, you might be getting more than you bargained for.

Not for the faint

The stories are well chosen and very well written. But some are not for the faint of heart Overall, if you like scinece fiction these stories are for you, but some are quite confronting.
