this damn transcript style makes me furious
I think I will wait until all of the episodes are available and continue then.

Yes, it's getting better, and the plot lines are starting to come out. It can't be easy writing an entire book that is made up of short stories that are interrelated, but so far, Scalzi is managing it. I do wish he would find words other than 'said' for his dialogue. Gets irritating! He does this in all his books, so I guess it won't change anytime soon. If these stories are your first introduction to Scalzi, try some of his other books to get a better idea of his writing style. I especially recommend Fuzzy Nation or Agent to the Stars.

The third in this series of standalone, although interconnected short stories - and it just keeps getting better. This story continues with characters who appeared in episode 1, The B Team, and, yes, also returns to the frequently used "said" mentioned in other reviews and which did not occur in episode 2. But don't let this put you off. The story is full of intrigue, strongly and humourously drawn personalities who are further given life by the excellent dialogue renderings of William Dufris..
Imaginative, dark but often funny and only 79p per episode, ignore the overuse of the word said - or treat it as i do as an extra element in the comic rendition - and go treat yourself: buy it now and enjoy.
This is a great short story, in a collection of intertwined short stories.
I will look for more title by this author.
