5.0 out of 5 stars 2014 This is a fantastic collection of stories, 9 July 2014
This review is from: Elite: Tales From The Frontier (Elite: Dangerous) (Kindle Edition)
Read in July, 2014

This is a fantastic collection of stories. As with any anthology, some stories appear better than others but none of the stories ought not be there.
They all give their own perspective to the Elite universe and since it is based on the game Elite Dangerous, if you are playing the game and you are only wanting to buy one book, this is the book to get as it has lots of snippets of information that is invaluable. Some show the loneliness of space travel while others show its busy spaceports but they all show an aspect of the human condition from a pirate wanting to steal to a trader trying to make ends meet to miners etc
If you don't play elite but are a sci-fi fan, it is still a good and interesting read.

You are better off buying the book directly from the publisher https://www.fantasticbookspublishing.com/store/

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection!, 22 Jun 2014
This review is from: Elite: Tales From The Frontier (Elite: Dangerous) (Kindle Edition)
The anthology covers a wide range of stories in the Elite universe. Each story is short enough to complete in a single session yet long enough to add depth and colour to the universe as a whole. Imaginative, well-constructed and very enjoyable!

This review is from: Elite: Tales From The Frontier (Elite: Dangerous) (Kindle Edition)
Although each story is short - this book works as each story has it's own focus within the Elite universe. This is a great way for someone to gain an introduction to the universe and ultimately the games.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid entry to a series of tie-ins for a great game., 22 July 2014

A thoroughly enjoyable tie-in to an amazing game in the making. As other reviewers stated, some of the stories work out better than others, but all of them work and are worthwhile to read. While it is true that fans of the game will get even more out of it, the individual stories very much stand on their own and, much like episodes of TNG, help flesh out an interesting universe.

With so much good SciFi literature to choose from, that's a commendable achievement.

5.0 out of 5 stars it's a door into a universe rich with story, lore and history and it's the gritty Elite universe to boot!, 16 Sep 2014
This review is from: Elite: Tales From The Frontier (Elite: Dangerous) (Kindle Edition)
You get the feeling a short story is good when you forget it's a short story. And when you don't want it to end is also a good sign. But when it leaves you with your thoughts floating in the shared reality they've created, forming a reality you imagine being part of, you know its great. There's several like that in this sci-fi collection all sharing the same universal reality but each completely standalone. Very good work by the authors, I highly recommend the book. The fact that it is tied to the upcoming Elite: Dangerous game is a bonus.
And if you like this look out for the other official Elite books too.
