Only worth your time if you are really into time travel.

This one was not my cup of tea and I felt it had some weaknesses as a story. If you really get into time travel the weaknesses can perhaps be overlooked. Interesting concepts....

    Liked the Short Story, but...

    The short story was pretty good. Of course it wasn't epic like Pandora's star, but that wasn't expected. I'm still not through reading the excerpt from the book that came after the short story, (can't remember the name, Mindless?) but so far, I'm not real into it. I really wish Mr. Hamilton would back of the graphic sex... it's really not necessary 99.9% of the time, and, if it is relevant, leave something to the imagination, so those of us who don't want to aren't forced to read the graphic details. Love Hamilton though. Wish he'd bring back Ozzy and friends!

    This was ok

    I give this story more of a 2.5/5 it was just kind of boring yet somewhat interesting at the same time. I thought it was 41 pages long but then it judt randomly ended at page 15 and went into an excerpt for another book by the same author. If your into scifi time travel stories then you might enjoy it but if not, its not really worth your time, even if its free.
