Pretty good stories within this omnibus, however none of the characters (including Grimes himself) are especially likeable. Also, the portrayal of women in all the Grimes adventures I have read so far has been far from flattering.
Another omnibus from SFBC, 4 books this time. The Broken Cycle, The Big Black Mark, The Far Traveller, and Star Courier. A mixed bag.
