3 good stories

Triceratops Summer by Michael Swanwick, Finished by Robert Reed, and The Jenna Set by Daniel Kaysen were the only stories worth your time in this collection. All in all it was a very disappointing collection.

Good collection, uneven narration

This is a good collection of Sci-Fi short stories, ideal in length for listening to if you want to get a whole story in on a walk. Most are well done, but I do have to note that some of the narration wasn't steller.

Most notably, the narration for "Bank Run" by Tom Purdom, the second story in the book, lacked any sense of excitement. Even sections that should have been highlighted by some sense of urgency by the narrator, like when the windscreen of the ship the main characters are on is shot up and shattered by weapons fire, is read in the same, unexcited and unexciting tone as sections describing routine financial transactions.
