Bought one for my father who said it was great. It was like having a new face he said. You can't get better than that now, can you?

Not great I'm afraid. This is a very thin collection and feels like an idea that came from the publisher rather than the author. In the preview NS is gracious enough to say that some of these pieces are old but it all feels very dated and put together as a quick money spinner by the publisher. I'd be interested to see how much of this work can be scrounged through Google.

ps. I am a big fan of NS.

I love this guy. Well at least I love this guy's sci-fi novels. But this isn't a novel, its a book of short stories and I don't like short stories so I can't really blame the author for me not enjoying these. On the plus side it has made me think a bit more about what I like about his and other novels. The answer is time: Time to get involved with the characters and Time to let the story get interesting.
