I really like my stories to have a beginning, a middle and an end The majority of these did not, which is a huge cop out from the authors who dreamt up a good idea, but failed to follow through Very irritating.

High quality writing and imaginative stories great reading I recommend to hard science fiction readers everywhere Have at it, have fun Great pack of short stories Some of them are extremely quick and leave you wantingSome are a little long and drawn out Overall fun reads.
What it s about This is a collection of short sci fi pieces from a variety of authors and ages What I thought There were some great pieces in here, along with some meh stories There weren t any that were terrible, but a few felt like they were just the first part of a story, rather than being a complete short story But I really enjoyed the last, and longest, story in this set, which follows a group of humans who are stranded on a hostile planet by anti human aliens It comes off as subtly sexist in some of its telling, but I found the concept interesting, and the writing mostly very engaging It also focused on the idea of people putting aside any selfishness and working for the good of the group above all, a message that resonated with me in these somewhat divided days Why I rated it like I did See above the really good bits were balanced out by some so so pieces.
This series has become a staple purchase for me The Eighth Science Fiction Megapack is a terrific bargain for just 99 cents Hours and I do mean hours of enjoyable reading I wasn t crazy about the very first one, but following that, these books have presented a very nice, representative mix of the genre Some stories are older, but most are of recent vintage, culled from various sci fi magazines and collections of originals.
Several stories deserve special mention The True Dark, by Pamela Sargent is really a horror story that reminded me of Serling s The Monsters are Due on Maple Street, but it s way scarier.
Robots Don t Cry, by Mike Resnick, is a superb account of a robot that remains loyal to a child long gone It might seem a bit dusty in the room you re reading it inWay Down East, by Tim Sullivan, is the story of honoring an alien s last wish A humorous, though
