Just so everyone knows, this is a collection of short stories. I'm not reviewing them individually, but as a whole.

I really want to like this. Aston is a generally likeable MC, and his adventures across the stars are very good space opera pieces. (Loved Jeannie the computer too!)

After all, editors are simply people who promote stories they enjoy reading. So read on...

The Aston West series is classic space opera where rawhide adventure of the frontier meets sophisticated technology of the 23rd century. T.M. Hunter has developed

This is a compilation of short stories does exactly what it was meant to-- make you want to buy every other novel featuring the hero Aston West. The Kindle edition is well formatted and edited. The character development is excellent, which is sometimes difficult in a short story anthology. Hunter does a superb job of world-building.

An interesting collection of short stories about space traveler Aston West and his ship's computer. I feel that these stories are geared toward young people, but I enjoyed them. Free copy for review purposes.

T. M. Hunter has always had a fascination with travel to other worlds, earning a B. S. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Kansas. His works have often been compared to the great pulp writers of the past, which made his multiple appearances in RAY GUN REVIVAL seem almost destined. He mainly writes in his Aston West universe, with three novels in the series (HEROES DIE YOUNG, FRIENDS IN ...more
