This is a science fiction anthology written by six college writers and this is the first in the series. Lost legends, space life and fallen heroes are explored further in each of the six short stories.
This book is a fantastic science fiction read. Each story is told from a different point of view, set in different aspects of time and space, yet each story is connected in the inner demons and trials of the main characters. There are a few grammar errors in a couple of the stories, but the rest of the short stories demonstrate excellent writing. Several of the stories end with cliff-hangers that will leave readers desperate to continue the series. Each of these writers have a gift for writing science fiction tales and each of them will have new fans from the readers of this book. A must read for all science fiction fans.
I enjoyed reading this anthology. I liked getting a taste of each of the talented writers’ styles, however I am disappointed that these stories ended so quickly. I hope that these tales are picked up in the next anthology or at least they are prequels to novels. Do you like to read anthologies by multiple authors or just a single author?
