Book Description

30 Jun 2009
Over the past two decades, few authors have garnered the critical acclaim and fan following of Elizabeth Moon, Nebula Award-winning author of The Speed of Dark, The Deed of Paksenarrion, and Remnant Population. Moon Flights, the definitive Elizabeth Moon short story collection, represents the highlights of an impressive career. Gathering together fifteen tales of fantasy, alternative history, and science fiction, Moon Flights features an original story, "Say Cheese," set in the Vatta's War cosmology, and an all-new introduction by Anne McCaffrey, legendary creator of the Dragonriders of Pern series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Classic Sience Fiction 7 Jan 2008
By Mrs. Stella White VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Most of these short stories are quite old and all except the new Vatta story, all 18 pages of it, previously published. To me it was a disapointment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great short stories 23 Oct 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ii love this book of short stories by one of my favourite writers. I've come across one or two of them before but most were new to me. My particular favourites were the comedy shorts about the Ladies Aid and Armour Society.

Accidents Don't Just Happen - They're Caused

Say Cheese
A deluxe limited edition also included the story 'Fencing In,' which was originally published in Ellery Queen August 1993 issue. Say Cheese takes place in the Vatta universe and involves Stavros and Gerard Vatta. It's pretty funny. It is the only previously unpublished story in this collection, but some of the others can be hard to find.

5.0 out of 5 stars A collection worth reading 6 Dec 2007
By B. Kjartan Lindøe - Published on Amazon.com
A collection of 15 short stories written between 1988 and 2007. It contains one previously unpublished story from the Vatta's war universe. There is also a limited edition that contains one extra story called Fencing In written in 1993. The limited edtidions isbn is 978-1-59780-108-9 (the first edition has just replaced tha last "9" with a "6"

The book contains a number of stories in different universes, but some universes are recurring in a couple of stories. Highly enjoyable, and her short fiction is at least as good as her long fiction.

Also has an introductory essay by Anne MacCaffrey, but that was nothing special, just a recommandation of Moons writings.

A good read with several stories that will linger for quite some time

4.0 out of 5 stars Some are repeats 28 Dec 2007
By Jeffrey L. Mincy - Published on Amazon.com
As always, Moon excells at short fiction, however, buyers should be aware that two or three of the stories in this volume are repeated from an earlier compilation of short stories titles Phases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moon Flights 27 Mar 2008
By Tim Lavrouhin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am always buying short story collections by mistake. I buy the author and title without reading about the book and expecting a novel, and am generally disappointed. Even the really great authors have trouble pleasing me in this format. This book is the exception. Each story has what it takes to stand on its own. Many have relatives in emoon,s novels, and some, I would love to see novel versions of. A great combination of sensitive character development and humor. Plenty of action to keep you turning pages. She's on my list of "I read anything with her name on it" authors.

3.0 out of 5 stars short story collection 15 May 2008
By Mike Garrison - Published on Amazon.com
Short story collections tend to be uneven, and this one follows the general rule. Some of the stories are better written than others, some of them have a better concept than others, and those two sets don't necessarily intersect.

If you like Moon's stand-alone novels you will probably like this book. It's more of a departure from her space opera series, however.

I did think that "New World Symphony" was particularly interesting, although I couldn't quite accept the premise required.
