"This collection would kick ass and take names, but if it brought a pencil it would end up stuck in your eye!"

Seriously good collection. As with any collection there were those I really liked and those I thought weren't as stong - but overall I really enjoyed it.

"The Nature of Mercy" by James Daniel Ross stands out as my favorite from the collection, but if you like military sci-fi you should get this book.

An excellent collection of themed short stories, particularly Jack Campbell's 'Grendel', which adds depth to his Lost Fleet series.

This is worth reading for Jack Campbell's story 'grendal' which is the prequel to his lost fleet series. The other stories while ok aren't as memorable.
