A variable collection,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: First Contact - Digital Science Fiction Anthology 1 (Kindle Edition)
One truly outstanding story ('Roanoke, Nevada') which actually fits the anthology title, and is worth the price of the book. The others are more variable, some petering out into tame endings after promising starts. Some interesting ideas, such as a post-1815 Europe with the prospect of flying machines, or of aliens who are rather too dependent (in a somewhat disturbing way) on human beings...
I notice that the successor volumes are currently cheaper than this introductory anthology, so I will be reading these next to see what they have to offer.
7 Feb update -I see the price of this volume is now the same as others in this series
