A collection of short stories from John Hemry, who uses the pseudonym Jack Campbell to write his Lost Fleet series.

All SF oriented and just how I like my short stories.


My Thoughts:

This was my "phone" book [I try to keep a book on my phone for those times that I forget my kindle and have 5 or 10 minutes of downtime at the dr's, or waiting for someone and stuff like that] and it worked out great. Short stories are perfect for little gaps of time one has.


I am a sucker for short story collections. I have been ever since I read Alan Dean Foster's paired collections With Friends Like These.... & ...Who Needs Enemies? Those are still some of my favorite books and I have them in very well read paperbacks.

And having read just about everything by Hemry/Campbell [alright, he's just Hemry from now on, even though he's more famous as Campbell. Sigh] I knew I would enjoy this.


These stories were just a lot of fun. Some were humorous, some serious and some thought provoking. All were excellently written and not a one bored me. I enjoyed this enough that I am seriously considering buying it in hardcover to add to my collection.


Not much more to say. Good stuff is good stuff and this book gets my stamp of approval.
