I really enjoyed the Podiobooks version of Brave Men Run, so when Matthew Wayne Selznick was running a survey on whether to write more in the setting I voted "yes" and picked up this collection of short stories (by other authors, in his setting) off his website as well.

It's a bit of a mixed bag. A couple of the stories suffer from the curse of indie writers: amateur editing. Matt Wallace's Mexican gangbangers call each other "essay" (I think that's "ese", Matt), but the prize goes to Jared Axelr

Mur Lafferty's "You Must Be My Lucky Star" is a good story, but it doesn't really delve in to the world of the Sovereigns like Jared Axelrod's "Can't Get There From Here" or Nathan Lowell's "Mouse Mousey". ...more

Short story collection that was a bit underwhelming.

A nice little follow-up to Brave Men Run. Not exactly a sequel. More like "supplemental reading."
