Most of these stories were pretty great. A couple of them - not so much.

Good for fans, not the best I've read.

Most of the stories were good, but I found a lot of them ended very abruptly. One step up from fanfiction.

Mixed bag

There are some excellent stories here. My favorites: General Hammond's story, Ronon's story, Sam's early days on Atlantis and the one with SG-1 shortly after Moebius. There weren't any bad stories although I would prefer in a collection of short stories by various authors that they do not reference other of their novels/works. They really should stand alone. The story Aftermath makes fairly heavy reference to the SG-1 novel Do No Harm.

Favorite story: “Precognition” by Jo Graham touches on the after-effects of one of my favorite episodes of Stargate SG-1, when our heroes travel back in time and are aided by a younger George Hammond. It was lovely to see his progression through the years, taking us to the man we know and love who guided the Stargate Program with such a steady hand. I especially enjoyed the historical twist about some other characters thrown in, which I decline to spoil here.

Story I’d love to see expanded into a
There were some hits and some excruciating misses in this one. In some stories everyone was in character and there was a quick and enjoyable adventure but there were also some seriously bad stories that were cringeworthy. I always find I like the Atlantis novels more so than the SG-1 and that is oddly still disappointing after all this time.

I sometimes need some easy reading and often turn to Stargate as most of the books read as easily as the TV series are watched! This anthology of short stories was no exception; an enjoyable and easily read collection.

Not quite as good as the first one, not nearly as on point, much larger fraction of short stories that are complete misses, but quite an enjoyable read nonetheless.

More stargate sg-1 and atlantis stories are always fun, perfectly captured characters, it's like watching more tv episodes. I rated this 3 stars as one of the stories were confusing and just didn't mesh well with stories that are supposed to be beginings or points of origins. This one bad short story of many leaves a bad taste in your mouth. And it's the second story so you start to worry about the quality of the book early on. The other stories are all great but sadly I kept thinking about that ...more

Much like the first such anthology, this collection of SG-1 and SGA short stories contained an entertaining mixture of snippets from character backgrounds to storylines that could have been part of any regular episode. While it didn't have as much in the way of standout stories I truly loved as the first collection, I did enjoy the majority of these quite a bit. My favourites were the very first and the very last story, dealing with the influence his encounter with SG-1 in 1969 had on George Ham ...more

More like fan fiction than professional short stories. Enjoyable anyway, just not in the league of recent publications.

Another good batch of SG short stories. Kind of helps fill the void left by the absence of any new tv episodes.
