Good set of stories, old fashioned but quite interesting. ( )

Collection of short stories, nearly all of high quality and quite enjoyable. This was a galley copy with quite a few typos and even some fractions of sentences missing, but overall a very good read. ( )

This short story collection from the Science Fiction author Allen Steele was very enjoyable. The stories were all well written and fairy even with only two I found uninteresting. A majority of the stories were Space Opera with some of the stories taking place in the Coyote and Near Space universes Steele has created in his novels. Before each story Steele offers his thought processes and motivations for that particular story. This is a nice look into the mind and creative process of the author. I enjoyed the Near Space stories so much I will look out for the novels.

The first story, "Martian Blood", was written in the style of a Ray Bradbury and reminded me of "The Martian Chronicles". My favorite story from the collection was "Ticking". Steele writes in his introduction to this story that it was the hardest one for him to write. I thought of it as a zombie take over only with robots. If you enjoy good old fashion Science a Fiction then you be entertained by this collection. ( )

The short stories in this collection were hit or miss for me but were readable. The two that stand out for me were "Alive and Well, a Long Way From Anywhere" and "Observation Post". "Alive and Well, a Long Way From Anywhere" deals with a business tycoon is has had enough of dealing with the human race a decides to become the ultimate hermit by making his home inside and asteroid. The dynamics of creating this life with minimal contact is engaging and sad at the same time. "Observation Post" is a good old time travel story that takes place during the Cuban Missile crisis and is told from the unique perspective of a member of one of the last remaining active naval airships.
