A collection of Brin's short stories and novellas with some commentary by the author. Generally good stuff if you like Brin. It varies from scifi to fantasy. ( )

Collection of short science fantasy stories by David Brin. My favorite story (not surprisingly one of the more "pure" SF stories) was "Tank Farm Dynamo." ( )

This book is a collection of David Brin's short stories. Most of the stories demonstrates Brin's ability to blend science fiction and fantasy tastefully and almost seamlessly. Each story is followed by an "author's note"; which only increases my respect for Brin's integrity. ( )

Nice collection of thought provoking stories. ( )

Some stories better than others. My favorite was "Thor meets Captain America", where the Nazis were close to winning WWII because they had managed to summon the Norse gods to fight on their side. ( )
