Okay, so far I have only read the Diana Gabaladon short story. I very much enjoyed it. ( )
  sweetfe | Jun 6, 2018 |
I liked this collection for the most part. I could have done without the ~80pg romance novella from Diana Gabaldon, which didn't really fit the mood or theme of the rest of the book, but most of the other stories were quite good. There's one near the end about a political science evil genius that was particularly interesting in light of current events. ( )

With twenty-two chances, this collection mostly hits its mark. The writing is mostly absurd and superb. And having Stefan Rudnicki narrate is pure perfection. I wouldn't even recommend the print book, as this is HOW one should hear these stories.

Other than the Gabaldon, which I skipped pretty fast, the others were all worth listening to at least twice. I have several favorites, but the first story is perhaps the very best. ( )

I tried, I really did. I wanted some fun, and that was what was offered here. Unfortunately it didn't deliver. I had to give up. Too self-consciously clever, too hipper-than-thou, and too sophomoric, for me. Otoh, if you want to let your inner adolescent run amok, have at it.

Enjoyed the Diana Gabaldon story of course. Skimmed Carrie Vaughn's. Read Marjorie. Liu's, wasn't my thing. Seaman McGuire's didn't excite me. One out of four isn't bad. ( )
