My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a short story collection that encompasses many different types of science fiction and fantasy. There is a good amount of space stories to be sure, but they are all different too. I would not say that there are many traditional fantasy stories (nothing like Lord of the Rings), but there are good stories in their own rights.

I would have liked more traditional fantasy stories, as it did seem that most of them were sci-fi. There weren’t any elves, wizards, magic, or other fantastic creatures (though I did like the cats that were based on actual prehistoric cats so that could be a fantasy, but that was only one story).

Apart from that, all the stories made me think, inspired me, and were entertaining. It did take me a while to read this book, as it’s not a cohesive book. It’s 20 different stories, so I needed a break after awhile to clear my mind. Which says a lot about how interesting the stories are.
